Remember how learning to ride a bike? If you’re anything like me you learned by doing it wrong, falling off repeatedly, getting up, getting back on and doing it again… and again… and again.
Actually, this approach works for lots of things. We learn best by doing something wrong the first time, then a little less wrong the next time and so forth, until we then get it right. Taking the next wrong step – not consciously, or in an attempt to sabotage ourselves, of course – pursuant to achieving or succeeding at something, leaves an impression we won’t soon forget, and it sweetens the taste of success when it finally arrives.
