We learn from mistakes, so don't make mistakes! Mistakes are a crucial part of our lives, so we need to make them in order to grow or learn from our own or others' mistakes. 

If we look at mistakes from a different perspective then we see them as opportunities to move forward and learn from them. This means that mistakes are not mistakes, but steps towards success. You know, when someone puts a log under your feet, you will never say it was a mistake, you will call it a roadblock! That's why there are no mistakes, there are obstacles or challenges or even bigger missions. If you look at mistakes as challenges or missions or obstacles then the world is immediately a better place. Because mistakes are no longer mistakes and they are an important part of your personal or business growth! 

To put it in my own words: There are no mistakes, there are only obstacles on the way to the goal that you can overcome, if you don't then you regress (you don't move or do nothing). In short, having obstacles on the way is normal and everyday, so don't feel bad when you come across an obstacle or a mission that you call impossible (mission impossible), but maybe it will become mission possible some day. 

It is best that I stop here, because it is not yet clear to me what I am saying. I know that you now have more motivation to make mistakes or to overcome your own obstacles on the path of life.
