Doing mistakes makes you better!

Is failure your enemy or your friend who takes you higher? People are complaining about their failures, or mistakes. I am of course - aware of that nobody is so confident to say: "It is OK, I will do it one more time and it will get better."

More often reactions on failure are full of  anger, insulting and bad energy that is spread around. No one is so patient, no one has so much time to do everything over and over again. But you know that next time, you are not going to do the same mistakes again. That's the thing that makes us better, stronger and confident.

"Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results" (Albert Einstein)

Learn from mistakes
"Make mistakes is human. Learn from mistakes is divine."

During my life I have made ​​a lot of mistakes. In relationships, personal life, communication, decision making, or so. These mistakes came from the fact that I acted before thinking or I didn´t know something very important to avoid making them. Stop blaming yourself for being wrong. You don´t have the time machine so it's better to accept it and live with it. Grab a mistake from the other side and look at it out of the box. Being thankful for realizing this mistake is being one step closer to what you want.

Yesterday, Peter accidentally deleted one of his articles and got some kind of frustrated. He had to write it all over again (and it was great idea). I told him: "Come here, sit down and write it again until you have it in your head. Maybe it will be even better than before." When you are doing the same thing again, gives you the chance to look at the same thing from different perspective. And I was sure, that the article will thankfully (to that extra effort) evolve in to better one. And it really was! In my eyes this is the best Peter´s article in the history of Play Your Day. He wrote very personal view on Things to be thankful for on Christmas. He writes about his touching experience from visiting the African Gambia. 

Mistakes are part of our everyday life. Even in the most common activities. Therefore, we decided to do some research before writing this article (as usually Bloggers do). Because it's Christmas time, we have tested our patience and Bakery skills.

What pleased us was an acknowledging the fact that beginnings may not always be excellent.  However, learning from mistakes, patience, persistence, will always lead you to achieving your goal. Even if it's small one, just like ours (to bake some sweet cakes).

Result of your work will neither be indistinguishable nor revolutionary, but you will see the difference. And yet, here is our result from having Christmas baking goal today and test our patience and persistence.

Merry Christmas
