Mistakes Are a Good Investment

To get to the top, you have to make mistakes. If you never make a mistake, that means you have never pushed the limit enough to see what works. And if you don’t push the limit, you’ll forever stay in a comfort zone that breeds mediocrity. It’s those who learn from their mistakes and persevere through the mistakes, that make it to the top. For example, Tom Landry, Chuck Noll, and Bill Walsh accounted for 9 of the 15 Super Bawl victories from 1974 to 1989. But what you probably didn’t know is, they also had the worst records of first-season head coaches in NFL history. Learn from your mistakes, maintain confidence, and persevere.
