There are people in this world who always seem to strive for perfection. A perfectionist is basically a person who who has extremely high standards, a person who believes that there is no room for mistakes, that everything must be flawless. So anything that is less than perfect is absolutely unacceptable.
Mistakes most definitely are a key part in making discoveries. Without a mistake made, there is no way to tell if you did something correctly, and no way to prevent that same mistake from happening again in the process of innovation and discovery. In the story, “Lost Cities, Lost Treasure”, Heinrich Schliemann made the mistake of digging up the remains of Troy. The author of this story stated that Schliemann “erased important clues to Troy’s past” by digging everything up.
Someone once said, “ Life is all about making choices. Always do your best to make the right ones and always do your best to learn from the wrong ones”- Anonymous. Choices can always look instructive whether they are great or bad. Often, a string of good choices makes it easier to continue down the path, good consequences paving the way to more good choices. However, poor choices often have unlimited consequences.
“It’s not how we make mistakes, but how we correct them that defines us”-Rachel Wolchin. If you’ve ever made a bad grade on a test than you know mistakes are natural. If your mistake was on a math test and you forgot a negative sign, then on the next test be more conscious. Picking up what has fallen is the highest struggle and the highest form of growth. The human race has made mistakes trying to make life better, but must try to fix them like after the dust bowl and the recent smog in Delhi.
Everyone knows that life is not easy all of the time, and everyone will make mistakes. Making mistakes is an inevitable part of being human. However, it is what you choose to do afterwards that matters. Successful people choose to leave it in the past, and to learn from it in the future. It is hard to be successful if all of the focus is on failure.
but I 've also made some really good ones Mistakes are a major fear for us humans but if we didn 't make mistakes we wouldn 't ever learn. There are gonna be times when we 're scared but there 's nothing bigger than fear than fear its self. Imagine when I was a child I wanted to ride a bike,but I was afraid of falling so my parents added training wheels then when I was older they took them off I got on it without the trading wheels and I fell I hurt myself pretty bad
I have always believed these lessons help me in my everyday life and the classroom. If I don’t do well on a test, forget my homework or I don’t do well on a project I don’t let it get me down. I think learning what you did wrong, fixing it, and getting it right the next time should be the goal. A failure needs to become a learning experience that you can build off of.
In life, failures sometimes happen. It happens to everyone. However, failures don’t define us as a person, but it builds you as one from those experiences. In my seventeen years, I have experienced my own share of blunders, each teaching me a new lesson. The person who succeeds without first failing hasn't really learned anything; in failures, there can be a learning experience and an opportunity to grow.
In “A Mistake that Should Last a Lifetime,” by Jessanne Collins argues that we should learn to deal with our mistakes, live with regrets, and know we can’t change our permanent situations. The narrator made a decision that made her live with a long regret. She tattooed her left wrist with a phrase that said, “Break to keep fixing.” She made a mistake because she was nervous and told the tattoo artist she was ready when she really wasn’t. Her simple tattoo led to a long time of regret.
The stock market crash of 1929 was needed as like a jump start for the nation. With the stock market crash of 1929, it sent the U.S. into the greatest depression it has ever known and people didn 't know what to do or how to fix it. Fitzgerald couldn 't predict the stock market crash but in his book the Great Gatsby, he does write about how, “that society was living in excess and without curbing its appetite somewhat, ruin was just around the corner.” Before the crash the only people that benefited were the wealthy and officials and the high ups, before the crash the market rose by 108 percent and wages grew, but this all came to a big grinding halt when the stock market crashed. The Nation went up and came crumbling down, this destroyed the economy and the view of people as they did not know how to fix it or change it.
What’s horrifying for a businessman is to see the stock market crash. On Tuesday, October 29, 1929, the United States stock market suddenly and completely collapsed. A renowned historical disaster, Black Tuesday, is attributed by many historians to be the start of the worst financial crisis in U.S. history, The Great Depression. The Great Crash itself had a devastating impact. Hundreds of banks failed, and because bank deposits were uninsured, their depositors lost some or all of their money.
In his essay, “Medusa and the Snail”, biologist Lewis Thomas claims that humans are built to make mistakes. He then argues that that mistakes are the basis for human growth. There are always right and wrong choices of which one needs and equal balance. Wrong choices are necessary and one learns from them. Thomas argues that mistakes are common and that they serve as an important guide towards discovering the new and creating progress.
There began to be a gradual decline in prices and the stock market ruptured. On October 24, 1929, the infamous “Black Thursday” took place, where stock holders went on a panic selling spree. Things then went from bad to worse, stock prices went down 33 percent. People stopped purchasing goods and business investments decreased after the crash. In the fall of 1930, the first of four major waves
