We have an Igbo proverb that says ‘when you choose to carry a clay pot up the slippery slope and fall thrice if the pot does not break, your waist would break.”
Repeating the same mistakes not only brings us heartache and failure but makes Wisdom to question our common sense.
It’s commonly said that to err is human, but why do we make the same mistakes over and over again?
It does seem as though our brains don’t learn from our past mistakes to the extent we might hope, as a matter of fact, dwelling on our past mistakes might not be the best way forward.
Instead, be more proactive and think about the future and what you can achieve if you avoid pitfalls.
