As we know that they say that mistakes makes people better, but I agree with the classmate-Lupe who handled one of the three in class journal presentations that some people do not learn from their own mistakes. For example, when he mentioned of someone getting a ticket after ticket are the type of people who do not learn from mistakes. Also he said, that as everyone grows up, we all make mistakes. Because as we grow we start developing some type of fears and we careless about making mistakes. Some people do take a thoughtful process of observing mistakes to become better at them and others do not. For example on August 2018 as I was heading to work early Tuesday in the morning traffic was so bad on the 605 North bound freeway and because I had fifteen minutes before my clock in time I decided to join the carpool even though I was by myself. About half a mile before exiting the carpool, a California Highway Patrol turn the lights on me from behind, so I pulled to right shoulder of the freeway to get my citation. The following week after getting my ticket same scenario the freeway was crowded, so I decided to jump into the carpool once again and I was lucky enough that I exited the carpool lane before the CHP turned the lights on me for the first time. So, this makes me remember that not all of us learn from our mistakes. There will be people who will be doing the same mistake over and over again, but sure they would be more just cautious. Therefore, they say that "people learn from our mistakes, so why are we afraid of making mistakes?" People can make mistakes become not mistakes anymore. If I would off continued driving on the carpool lane on the second time a mile down for sure I would off got my second citation back to back. Even though I know I was not supposed to be on the carpool lane alone, I still did joined because I hate seating on traffic doing anything. But the soul made me get out before that happened. So they say that mistakes make people better, but I say sometimes because there are still careless people who do not obey the rules as myself and sometimes people are forced to do violations. Like if I would off not been in the carpool those times for sure I would had been late to work and if I am late of course I would not get payed nor make up that missed time, so I felt forced to.
on my opinion, driving on the carpool is not a mistake because you know it is wrong, but you still do it. You got a ticket because you did a illegal thing. You do not know is wrong or right when you are encourage to do something. You realize that it is a mistake after someone tell you.
During the journal presentations on Tuesday, the presenter that I agree with and relate to was Aldolf. He began his presentation by giving the definition of angst and how it relates to having anxiety and fear of making a mistake. What was really interesting to me is when he made an analogy with theatre. He gave a good example by saying that actors in theatre make mistakes all the time during their practice before the big day and that is how they learn and are able to perfect the play. He also said, "A negative thought people have is once you make a mistake once, you learn to avoid it without learning what you did wrong". That brought to my attention that mistake is what makes you grow and be mature about what had happened. I agree with his presentation because he was able to give us an example of what we should and should not avoid mistakes. He also explained how it is not the mistake that we are afraid of but it is the fear of the consequences that we make from the mistakes. For me, I am always afraid to make a mistake because of the fear that I always had whenever I did make a mistake. I always felt so much dread throughout the day and I can't let go of what had happened.
Everyday we make the simplest mistakes; regardless if it's big or small, we face consequences for our mistakes. As Adolf said on Tuesday night, "Some of us do realize their mistakes." But some of us are clueless about what we did or some do not acknowledge the mistake they did, knowing "it will cost them something great." I personally agreed with what Adolf and Lupe said. We should all relate on how we define mistakes but everyone has their own views on it. I believe it's in our human nature to commit mistakes and we should cause us to feel fear and anxiety.
We fear of the after math but we do not prevent it from happening or as Lupe said we think that we are too perfect or we try to be, to care. Every individual either does or does not care. I have my days. As a matter of a fact, I am doing a mistake while I'm typing my response. I'm at work and rather then working, I am trying to finish the last of my school work. I have done this before and I did get caught and received a call from my boss. Of course, I do understand this is a work space but right now I am not giving any notice to my mistakes. I do fear that my boss will give me another call.
The idea of us learning from our mistakes I believe depends on a person to person basis. I can relate with Adolf on his presentation, when he mentioned that sometimes its not that we are afraid to make mistakes but the consequences, or outcome of such. A mistake that has made us learn something should be something that we clearly should avoid doing in the future if not at all forever.
I, for example can see how when retaking a test could bring fear to someone, making them afraid to fail again. However, the lesson learned from the first fail should have been to prepare more. If the mistake you did here was to just take the test without studying, on your second attempt, hopefully you do prepare and study before. A better result should prove you have learned and from your mistake and fixed it.
Being afraid to make a mistake knowing what has happened before as a result, is not learning from it, I think it's more of taking another chance and hoping for a better or different result, similar to what A.R. stated on his response to this journal question.
I agree with my classmate Lupe when he gave examples of someone that continues to receive tickets after tickets while drinking and driving. Now in my opinion i don't agree that someone doesn't learn from their mistakes but can let time pass by and do it again meaning in reality they learn it for the moment but will always continue to do the same mistake. Therefore depending on how severe it is the consequences come next. Everyday we face obstacles that would make us make mistakes we are human. However we should think about it twice before we proceed. Our new generations seems to be careless than in the past we see more and more news from one problem to another in the ages of 15 to 25.
i agree with what you are saying people need to learn from there mistakes they are bound to do it again. as human we make mistakes every day but i don't think 15 to 25 years aren't making the most mistakes. people of all ages have chaused problems in our world and i think that it's that age group is the one that can fix it but people need to work together to changes the mistakes that people have already made.
We all make mistakes. Some of us realize it and some of us do not. For most of us that do, we try to fix it or make better decisions in future choices. I feel we fear making mistakes again because we have seen consequences to making mistakes and do not want to have to face them. I agree with adolph's analogy with practice making perfect in the theatre. We may not all be in theatre but our lives are similar because as we age we are practicing for the future and are learning what we should and should not be doing. Of course not everyone happens to be the same, many like in the example of someone getting a speeding ticket will pay the consequence of their mistake and will continue doing the same no matter what the consequence happens to be. In the end fear of making mistakes is something you are taught at a very young age whether its by your parents or by your actions as a child.
I agree on the way Adolph's analogy was used it was perfect in the sense of showing how mistakes are meant happen. As it provides an opportunity to be better and to teach oneself where their mistakes were made. I also agree with your reply on how we age and how we are practicing for our future and learning what to do and what not to do. Some mistakes though will not be intentional and those will be the most important in your life. A mistake leading you to know better. Like getting late to your bus stop and watch as it leaves you behind. Mistakes will always be made yet we fear making one. At the end of it all it comes down to how you perceive it. When making a mistake learning from it doesn't come to the forefront of your mind. Its the outcome that scares us. Maybe that should change for the benefit of us all.
All three presentations were great. Each one with a different point of view. In this weeks assignment, "If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make a mistake?" is a complicated one but we can all agree everyone makes mistakes. No one is perfect. I make mistakes you make mistakes. How ever being afraid of making mistakes is the most interesting part on this quote.
Being afraid of a mistake is in our DNA. We know a wrong choice can be costly. We do not want to experience the results that come from a mistake. Do you know someone who does? Especially if you thought you've learn from a mistake, doing it once again can make you feel unpleasant.
Mistake can affect your life in big and small ways, and when you you can not change what happens. However you can learn from these mistakes. Like Lupe said about the driver that keep getting tickets for driving bad if that driver doesn't stop then they would lose there license or can hurt someone.if you keep making the same over and over i will have negative affects on you. when you make to many mistakes at work the would fire you. when you don't do good in school you fail. when make a mistake and you learn from them then you can improve your life. i fail many of my class before i figured out what i need to do to pass. its ok to make a mistake but if you dont learn from them that where the really problem comes from.
I believe we all have fear of being judged or criticized by our peers to some extent. Sometimes procrastination is also just fear of making a mistake or not being good enough. I know I have made excuses and avoided doing certain things all for fear of making a mistake. I agree with the analogy Adolf used of us making mistakes on the practice stage of a play. I think its very true that we should make as many mistakes in school and in our youth as we safely can. We will not always have the luxury of mistakes in our life so we should take chances and try different angles and approaches.
Just get out there and do it, because no one is perfect and we will all learn and gain experience from our mistakes. Last but not least we should all be able to recognize and take responsibility for all our mistakes.
You know when your parents say I was young once and I learned from my mistakes ? Did they really learn ? Are we just following their footsteps to believing that it is ok to make mistakes ?I know when my mom tells me that, I get scared to even make a simple mistake because every action brings a consequence before a lesson . From what I’m reading from my other peers we should take full responsability even if it means having to hear your parents nonstop about it , they were there once so they can’t really judge you but help you along the way.
Making mistakes is something we all do very often. Some mistakes are bigger than others and have more of an impact on peoples lives. I agree with Adolfo when he said that making mistakes is crucial and that we should be willing to make them. Of course it's all to a certain extent. For example we should only be willing to take risks in hopes of receiving good outcomes, not taking risks that will only do harm. I think that the reason that we are so afraid of making mistakes is because we do not want to face the consequences, no matter how important the lesson we learn will be. The perfectionist in all of us comes out when given the opportunity to make a mistake. I think that in a way, this is also due to our stubbornness of always wanting to be right. Something that the second presenter mentioned that stood out to me was when he said sometimes people don't recognize when mistakes are made, and that is when it can go downhill. I agree with this because if we don't recognize that we have made a mistake, there is no possible way that we can learn from it, and the mistake will be made over and over again.
Mistakes that we make are meant for us to learn from and grow from them. We aren’t scared to make any mistakes, in my opinion we just don’t plan on making a mistake and the only thing we’re scared of is our plan if a mistake does occur because at the end of that day we don’t have a plan aside from the original one. A mistake does help us grow and learn but the only bad thing about a mistake is if it occurs when you only have a one shot to get it right. That’s the only time that we are scared to ruin it or mess it up. Being scared of a mistake just means that we are scared of change or scared of being taught different ways of doing things and or ways to grow.
