The other day a family member and I were talking about life lessons. I was encouraging her that she should always learn from her experiences, her choices. I said, ” Try not to make the same mistake twice. It is okay to make a mistake, just make sure you learn from it.”
She also added to the conversation the thought that you will either win by making good choices or learn after you have acted on a bad choice. In short, you either win or you learn. I said, “No you either lose or you learn.”
But upon reflection, and needing to work on my optimism, I think she is right. You do either win because you have acted out a good choice or you learn from the experience after making a bad choice.
Do you agree? Or, is it better to say that sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, but you always learn?Proverbs 1:5 (King James Version) A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels.
