10 Rules for Being Human | Rule 3: There are no mistakes, only lessons


“There are no mistakes, only lessons. Growth is a process of trial and error: experimentation. The ‘failed’ experiments are as much a part of the process as the experiment that ultimately ‘works’.” — Dr. Chérie Carter-Scott

Imagine yourself standing at the precipice of a magnificent garden. Lush greenery stretches before you, vibrant flowers bloom in every direction, and the air thrums with life.

But to reach this paradise, you must navigate a maze, some paths lead to fragrant blooms, others to prickly hedges.

This, my friends, is a beautiful metaphor for life.

Dr. Cherie’s NEW book “Life IS a Game” dives deep into each of these 10 rules explored by her own real life experience.

She dedicated her life following these rules and now, at the age of 75 she reveals the lessons that she learned by following the “10 Rules for Being Human” for over 50 years.

That’s the beauty and brilliance of this book, it’s a real life experiment and testimony to the truth. Get your copy today and make sure to leave an honest review, it helps more than you know. Thank you!

We embark on this incredible journey with the inherent desire to create a vibrant and fulfilling existence.

However, the path is rarely a straight line…

We encounter detours, dead ends, and sometimes, those prickly hedges.

But here’s the secret most successful people understand: These are not mistakes, but experiments.

Rule 3: There are no mistakes, only lessons


Think of yourself as a brilliant scientist, forever conducting experiments in the grand laboratory of life.

Every experience, every choice, is a test.

Some lead to stunning discoveries: the perfect job, a cherished friendship, a moment of pure joy.

Others may not yield the desired outcome, like a missed opportunity or a decision with unforeseen consequences.

But here’s the key:

All experiments, successful or seemingly failed, provide valuable data.

The “failed” experiment doesn’t mean you’re a bad scientist, it simply means you’ve learned something vital about the system you’re navigating.

Did that job interview not go well?

Perhaps your resume needs tweaking, or the company culture wasn’t the right fit.

Did that investment not pan out?

Maybe it exposed a gap in your financial knowledge, prompting you to seek out valuable information.

3 Ways How to Grow from Your “Mistakes”:

Growth is, by its very nature, a messy process.

It’s a beautiful dance of trial and error, where mistakes are merely stepping stones on the path to mastery.

Here’s how you can truly embrace the power of this rule

1. Reframe your perception.

Instead of dwelling on the negativity of a “mistake,” it’s more constructive to ask yourself a series of empowering questions:

What can I learn from this experience that will help me navigate similar situations in the future?
What hidden strengths did I discover within myself during this challenge?
How can I use this knowledge to make better choices moving forward?

By shifting your focus from blame to learning, you transform setbacks into stepping stones and cultivate a growth mindset, the belief that you can learn from any experience and improve over time.

2. Embrace the discomfort.

Stepping outside your comfort zone is where real growth happens.

Discomfort is a natural part of the learning process.

It’s the feeling you get when you try something new, push your boundaries, or challenge yourself.

It might be the nervous flutter before a big presentation, the frustration of tackling a complex problem, or the awkwardness of initiating a conversation with someone new.

But here’s the thing: discomfort is a signal, not a stop sign.

It’s your body’s way of telling you that you’re on the edge of growth.

When you embrace discomfort, you open yourself up to new possibilities and experiences.

You learn to navigate uncertainty, develop resilience, and build confidence in your ability to handle whatever life throws your way.

So, the next time you feel that familiar flutter of nervousness, don’t shy away from it. See it as an invitation to experiment, to learn, and to grow.

3. Track your progress.

It’s easy to get discouraged when focusing solely on the grand destination.

Instead, try to keep a record of your small wins.

Did you finally master that challenging yoga pose? Celebrate!
Did you overcome your fear of public speaking and deliver a confident presentation? Acknowledge your achievement!

Tracking your progress, no matter how seemingly insignificant, allows you to witness the accumulation of your efforts and fosters a sense of accomplishment.

This, in turn, fuels your motivation and keeps you moving forward on your path of growth.

Boldly Into The Unkown

My friends, there are no wrong turns in this magnificent garden of life.

Each experience, positive or negative, shapes who you are and propels you towards your personal paradise.

So, step boldly into the unknown, embrace the detours, and remember, the most profound lessons often emerge from the most unexpected “mistakes.”

Now, go forth and conduct your most magnificent experiment yet, your life!
