Correcting Our Mistakes

To acknowledge & correct our mistakes is crucial for success. 

We make mistakes more often than we realize. Sometimes we even defend our mistakes despite the realization.

I first came across with the word “Self Realization” from the book Autobiography of a Yogi by Yogananda Paramhansa. It is a big word, and is difficult to attain, it means looking at oneself without judging. It requires practice, patience, and meditation.

Humans are the only creation of God capable of Self Realization.

In simple word, we are blind to our mistakes, and Self Realization is the process to shrink our Blind Spot.

I am very privileged that my writings are being proofread by one of my friend Yogi, (A Grammar Nazi), he helps me correct my grammatical mistakes.

With that said, sometimes the mistakes are too obvious to notice but somehow I fail to notice, only to be later corrected by him.

I remember a conversation with him, where I asked, “How could I possibly miss that?”. He said, “Probably because you are the author and expect everything to be correct”.

Me on the other hand.. I am looking for mistakes“, he added.

That is so true, it is also true for every other action we take in the life. We believe that every action of ours is perfect.

We all should have one friend who is bold enough to show us our mistakes, to make us more successful in our endeavors.

I am very grateful to him. Thank you so much, Yogi, for improving my writings.
