I thought about writing this post for a long time already. There are so many lessons I learned last year…
Let me learn from my mistakes
As much as we want our loved ones to not getting hurt in a relationship or failing in a business, we warn them too much. Too much that, only few people will take the risk to do what they feel deep down in their guts that’s the right thing to do.
Of course, taking the risk doesn’t mean that they won’t get hurt nor fail. It only means that regardless of that risk, they’ll give it a shot and even if they hit a dead-end, they will have learned a valuable lesson that will help them to grow and to get closer and closer to their goal.
Although I failed in my first business attempt, I consider it as the best lesson I could’ve ever learned in my life. If I had the knowledge I have now and could turn back time, I would’ve certainly made different choices.
In any case, I have no regrets because what’s important it’s not the destination but the journey. And so far, it’s been a hell of a ride 🙂
P.S.: If you haven’t read the book “Veronika decides to die” by Paulo Coelho, I totally recommend it to you. Previously, from Paulo Coelho I’ve only read “The Alchemist” so I was kinda confused with the story but the lesson learned at the end of the book is precious.
