Be prepared to be wrong to build something original

If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you will never come up with anything original

I love telling this story.

A six-year-old little girl was in her drawing lesson. The girl was so deeply engrossed in her drawing that she didn’t pay any attention to anything around. Watching her so much attentive, the teacher felt fascinated and approached her, and she said, what are you drawing?

The girl said, “I’m drawing a picture of God.”

The teacher quizzed further with her sense of affirmation, “But, nobody knows what God looks like”, and the girl said, “They will in a minute.”

Take a chance like kids. Kids don’t know about the success or the failure. They are not frightened of being wrong…

If you aim to grow, it’s only possible when you’re willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable… when you are prepared to try something new.

From the time you have become an adult, you have lost your kiddish capacity. Regain it back if you aim to stop being frightened of being wrong.
