in mistakes •  2 years ago  (edited)

Hey, have you been a blogger all your life? Do you have diploma certificate in blogging? Hardly! All thanks to @euronation who saddled itself with the responsibility of exposing its members to the skills and knowledge needed to excel on steemit. I am not an exception from this magnanimity.

However, sometimes you find yourself making mistakes. Are you afraid and embarrassed to make mistakes? I would say, do not be afraid to make mistakes, just learn from them . Do you know that to succeed, it is important that you learn never to make one mistake twice? Not that you wouldn't make mistakes. Who are you not to make mistakes?! Mistakes are inevitable especially when learning something new. In short it is better to make mistakes than to be counted as someone who has made nothing.

Mistake gives you opportunity to learn and do it better next time.


Yes, when you publish a post and encounter mistakes such as gabbled display of your references, images not referenced at all or not very well, failure to add an image altogether or to read posts of well meaning steemians in your feed. You also may probably take for granted the opportunity to power up, lack consistency in blogging, write in a stiff manner with improper editing, attract cheetah on your trail, and many more. These are common mistakes.

Yet you have to move on. To move on from your mistake is to learn from it so it doesn't recur. What is more, some adults like me have lost their steemit passwords. Some follow and get followers but forget to check their feeds to upvote those who they follow. As for me, I have learnt from all my mistakes, you should too.




i) Remember you are dust: You are not perfect and no one expects you to be. So do not be overly angry at yourself when you make mistakes. Take life as it comes.

ii)Console your self: For sure you must have been there to comfort someone who made a mistake in the past. Its now time to take the pills you recommended for someone.

iii) Take it as a training: If mistake didn't happen, you wouldn't have the opportunity to learn better how to do it. Mistakes serve as an experience, never to be repeated.

iv) Become wiser: Could there be associates who influenced you to do what turns out to be a mistake? Shun those friends now. Was it your personal quest for greater things? Take it slow. Grow up and identify those contributory factors that landed you in a mistake and dissociate yourself from them.


Mistakes give us opportunity of knowing how to do it right. You may not know it, a mistake may turn out to be just that necessary thing you need to lead you to an achievement that is worth while.

Do not quit. Those who are successful keep moving, you hardly see them quit. Instead they believe that a life spent making mistakes is better and useful than the one spent doing nothing.

Having seen that mistakes are not death warrants, why do you feel ashamed, embarrassed and angry when you make one? Could it be because you were punished ? Deal with it but do not forget that mistakes are unavoidable part of getting to the top.

There is lesson in every mistake, i think the reasons for mistakes are for lessons to be learnt.

You are right. Thanks

Our mistakes shouldn't define our future.. Rise again cos the future is bright. Pls visit my blog too, thanks

Mistakes are an opportunity to learn and be better positioned to handle such things in the best way. Thanks @adoore-eu and @euronation

You are very right. Thanks

Several times we let our mindset hinder our actions
While the mind function by some cognitions.
It gives room for instability.
Only the emotionally balanced can overcome

Sure. That's the mistake

Nice write up. It applies to me, I have seen areas to adjust. Thanks guys.

Better do. Welcome.

Making mistake is not the end, it actually gives time to amend and to get the work perfected. #Teameuraonation

You are very right. Thanks

Great words of wisdom, our mistakes are just a stepping stone to achieve a better us.

Sure man. Your very right in this case. Thanks

This is awesome.
We are bound to make mistakes but we shoudn't allow the mistake to bound us

It's good we learn not to repeat or make a mistake twice but I've also noticed that sometimes events can happen in subtle ways which can get one into making a mistake twice.
In all, learning not to repeat serves the best!
Thanks for more insight....

This is good... well done guys!

Thanks dear

This post is definitely for me but I'm glad that with each mistake I'm becoming better

Our mistakes makes us who we're, it makes us stronger. If we learn from our mistakes, there is no how we can make the same mistakes again. @euronation thank you sir for this write up

Making mistakes sometimes is a blessing in disguise. Nice post

No man is perfect, except God, therefore, when we make mistakes the onus lies on us to pick up our broken pieces and forge ahead. Its just like when we fall, we should not remain on the ground, we should get up at once and keep moving, until we reach our permanent sites. Nice post my friend.

Very inspiring post. A must read. Don't make decisions when you are emotionally affected. Thank you for sharing this @euronation.

When mistake is made and you correct it, it will surely make you learn and strong

We grow better when we learn from our mistakes!

Just the dose i needed. I've made mistakes too and we're all victims, our victory over it is learning from it and be a success
