ON COMMITTING A MISTAKE
Not performing anything tangible
Is also a mistake of huge proportion
Since sitting tight bereft of action
For fear of making mistake
Leads to our static existence
Lacking in dynamism
Can produce lethargy
And attitude so reckless
Will retard our forward march
To point mistakes of others
While being oblivious of own mistakes
Is also a huge mistake.
While performing a job
Mistakes would be committed
It is natural
Since it is through trial and error
Experimentation and practical
Utility that we move forward
On the path of growth and development.
Going forward calls for taking risks
Since it is through risk taking only
We succeed or face failure
Depends on commitment to succeed
But if we fear from mistakes
While performing our tasks
Challenges in the form of mistakes
Would be there
But we’ve to face every mistake
Analyze them, break these mistakes apart
And then act.
And according carry out course correction
Should be our motto
Rather than cursing
A person who points our mistake
Since it is through rectification of our mistake
We proceed further in our life
With a thought
That everyone of commits mistake
But a person who realizes
His mistake and rectifies
Is a person
Who learns something.
ON COMITING A MISTAKE
Obviously, when are not willing to transact any take for fear of committing of mistake, it too is a mistake. While jobs are done, there is every possibility of commission of mistake. It is as clear as a day. Those who dare to transact a job, they will come across obstacles, problems, pitfalls and opposition (some man-made and other natural) will certainly be there. In this sort of a scenario, we’ve have to cross all these hurdles and succeed. It is not that we shall not be making mistakes during the process of fructifying a task. Sure enough, mistakes will creep in but will to overcome those mistakes will help us overcome these mistakes and we shall come out with clean slate.
In Bhagwad Gita, it has been clearly mentioned: When you don’t do anything you will never commit a mistake, you will be a person who would not make any mistake, but you will never move; by and by you will simply rot.
NOT DOING ANYTHING USEFUL IS BEING STATIC
It is our duty to perform our Karmic deeds but sitting tight and doing thinking that what is happening is our destiny is idle thought. If we are not doing anything because of fear of making mistakes then we’re living in fools’ wonderland. This sort of thinking will make us lethargy and useless person. We may have fear of committing mistake then nobody will transact anything. We’ve to take risk; big or small. Even if we fail in our attempt, we still learn from the experiment of performing something thereby. we tend to be self-aware. Try again, do not repeat the mistakes and you will see the optimum result. In Bhagwad Gita Lord Krishna says that even if you go astray, make mistakes, then also you will grow in consciousness, you will turn in and find me only.
MAKING MISTAKE IS HUMAN BUT REPEATING THE SAME MISTAKE IS INSANITY
While performing our duty, we tend to lead astray, make mistake here and there but every mistake should be an eye opener. A realization should dawn on us that repeating mistake will make us immobilize, full of friction and our further growth will stop. It should be kept in mind that making the same mistake time and again repeatedly showcases our inattentive and unfocused mindset.
MISTAKEN IDENTITY CAN ALSO DO HARM
Sometimes, we commit mistake in passing our mistakes on others’ shoulders. This could be deliberate or just unintentional one. In any way, we should be responsible for our own Karma and should stop being judgmental about others.
LONG TERM CONSEQUENCES OF COMMITTING A MISTAKE
It should always be borne in mind that commission of repetitive mistakes will add up our debit of Karma in our account and in the long run nobody will believe us. This could be counterproductive to our further growth spiritually and enlightenment.
IDENTIFYICATION OUR OWN MISTAKE
After commission of mistake, we may justify and give several excuses for committing a mistake but pragmatically, if we find that we have committed mistake, we should gracefully accept and rectify the same and thereafter.
IT IS REALLY DIFFICULT TO ACCEPT OUR OWN MISTAKES
We tend to give so many excuses if and when we are mistaken. We do not want to accept that we have committed mistake. This is fallacy and tantamount to commit another mistake of not accepting your own mistake! A sincere person will accept his mistake and try to rectify the same as soon as it is observed that mistake has been made.
PATIENCE IS REQUIRED TO AVOID COMMITING MISTAKE
It has been observed that when we are under the influence of emotional perturbation or in a mental surcharged state, we cannot think rationally in that state of mind. In such scenarios, we tend to commit mistakes. Need is to be patient and introspect or pose q question to ourselves; what if we do not take hasty decision? This way we can avoid so many future blushes or embarrassments.
POINTING OUT A MISTAKE
When we point out a mistake of others, it should not be just to lower somebody’s esteem but to give somebody a chance to rectify his/her mistake. When doing so, we should also take into consideration his/her state of mind. Pointing fingers at somebody’s mistake while that person does not need his/her mistake to be pointed out is also a mistake.
COMMITTING A MISTAKE IS NO CRIME OR SIN BUT NOT DOING OUR KARMIC DEED FALLS UNDER THE DOMAIN OF UNNATURAL WAY OF LIVING
It should be borne in mind that committing a mistake is not a sin or crime but fearing to transact our Karmic deeds, I think, is unethical and beyond the principles of living according to the laws of nature.
