Our Mistakes Can Be Blessings in Disguise!

Valuable lessons learnt this week: how to turn a mistake into a blessing.

It’s funny, that you would think that doing things “right” would be best- not always. When we mess up, and have to put something right we seem to learn in a deeper way.

I messed up some computer tech stuff, not badly. But it meant I spent a couple of nights putting it right. The result was a fuller understanding of the technology. I was forced to learn things I would have not sought out myself, because I did not know they needed finding out.

This made me think about children’s learning. How if they have to fight and grapple with a problem, and overcome mistakes the learning can be deeper and fuller.

But to turn a mistake into a blessing we first must overcome our fear of failing, our fear of learning and do battle with the problem.

As Winston Churchill said:

“Success is stumbling from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.”
