I Made A Misteak

I made a misteak.

Don't worry - you make them too.

Mistakes happen. Not only do they happen, they are guaranteed.

My father used to say, the only way you won't make mistakes is 
if you don't do anything, and that itself is a mistake.

To many are afraid to try something new because they feel they 
might make an error. They are both right and wrong. Yes, they 
will probably make errors but it is good to understand that 
errors go with the territory. 

You will never accomplish great or worthwhile things without 
risk and risk generally means great mistake potential.

You are probably reading this by light bulbs invented by Thomas 

He made over a thousand light bulbs that didn't work. 
The world would have called them mistakes. 
He said he learned a thousand ways not to make a light bulb.

The way to avoid mistakes is experience. 
The way to get experience Mistakes.

Don't feel bad because you messed up with something. 
Don't be afraid to venture out into a good thing because you are 
afraid that you might mess up.

What was the misteak?

A recent MountainWings issue that had the wrong day 
on the subject.

Don't worry; there will be new mistakes. 

I will make them and so will you. So will we all.

If you feel bad about some mistakes that you've made, 
read these three past MountainWings.

So what about Jesse? http://www.mountainwings.com/past1/1020.htm

Learning to Run: http://www.mountainwings.com/past1/1169.htm

It's about mistakes, getting up, and the will to keep going.

Remember, you don't drown because you fall into the water, 
you drown because you fail to get out.

Keep going, don't let the mistakes stop you.

You may only be one light bulb away.

A MountainWings Original

While one person hesitates because he feels inferior, another is 
busy making mistakes and becoming superior. 
Henry C. Link 

An expert is a man who has made all the mistakes which can be 
made, in a narrow field. 
Niels Bohr (1885-1962) 

We have to keep trying things we're not sure we can pull off. 
If we just do the things we know we can do... you don't grow as 
much. You gotta take those chances on making those big 
Cybill Shepherd 

Finally, the computer world on misteaks. . .
Dew knot trussed yore spell chequer two fined awl yore mistakes.
