The person who doesn’t make mistakes is unlikely to make anything. (Paul Arden, author)

The fear of failing keeps many of us from trying anything new. As philosopher Elbert Hubbard put it “The greatest mistake one can make is to be afraid of making one.” Inventors like Thomas Edison had hundreds of failures in attempting to make their discoveries useful. Thanks to their willingness to make mistakes, we have all benefited from their perseverance.

You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised (Hebrews 10:36).
