You must learn from the mistakes of others. You can’t possibly live long enough to make them all yourself. – Sam Levenson
Meaning of this Quote
Our parents and ancestors have always told us to learn from our mistakes and not to repeat them ever again. We were told that our life is short, and if we keep on repeating the same mistakes we have done in our lives, we may end up doing nothing ever.
Life rarely gives you the same second chances. So, stick to the battleground once you have reached there, and never repeat the same mistakes you have done last time.
While pursuing our dreams, if we repeat the same mistakes again, who knows, someday we might not get the chance to try once again, even if we know what to do and how to do it.
This has always helped the survivors and the winners of the battleground big time winning the game. However, we haven’t ever told how we should also learn from others’ mistakes too.
One of the fundamentals of our life is that it is uncertain. This uncertainty sometimes makes people champions of the world in sudden occasions.
However, this uncertainty can end our lives suddenly too. So, we should always keep learning, not only from our mistakes but also from others’ mistakes too.
Because, with such uncertainty of life, one thing we can tell for sure, and that is, you may not possibly live long enough to make all the mistakes of others in your life, learn from it, and then try again.
