Have you ever made a decision that you ended up regretting? You were in a situation where you had to make a choice. Later you realized that you should have chosen door number 2. It happens to us all the time. I am here to tell you that mistakes do not end the world. Mistakes are nothing more than planned opportunities.
Everyone has heard of “Milk Duds” Candy, the odd shaped chocolate covered caramel candies. At the beginning, the maker of these candies set out to make perfectly shaped round candies. When they did not turn out perfectly round, they were thrown in a tub of duds. The tub of “duds” grew much faster than the round candies. Someone said, “We have to do something with these duds”; hence Milk Dud candy was born! Failure turns into success, and this mistake turned into a candy that many people love.
The moral to this story is that things go wrong every day, Perfect days do not exist. We live in a mistake laden world. God bundles our mistakes and turns them into opportunities for us. We have to be smart enough to recognize them and take advantage. Even if we continue to make mistakes, we should never stop trying to get it right. Don’t ever give up on yourself.
Experts are people who rarely make mistakes, they seem to always get things right the first time around. To be an expert, you have to make lots of mistakes and learned from them. There is only one true expert…. God. He sees all of our mistakes and changes them to opportunities for us. Begin today looking harder at your mistakes, find the opportunities left for you and go do something amazing!
