Andy was relating some personal struggles with applying Higher Laws in the beginning and asked himself, "What will STOP me? What will be the thing that knocks me off my path?" Andy's answer to this question was...
NOTHING! NOTHING! NOTHING! He would not let any uncertainty knock him off his path and cause him to have a near miss with greatness. He knew that he wanted to get away from being honorable vs. valiant and that he wanted to be a helper, a servant and a teacher. If he failed to take his next step, it was FEEDBACK to help him know whether or not he was moving forward. He didn't beat himself up if he didn't take the next step.
MISTAKES are FEEDBACK and nothing more. Mistakes get correction through thoughtful application. Doing things mindlessly will lead to bad habits but doing things...practicing mindfully with the intent to get better will lead to PERFECTION. You have to practice and express your bad habits with the INTENT of getting better...with the awareness that you aren't perfect...that there are things for you to improve on. There are no excuses not to act. Take every opportunity to practice and correct mistakes.
PERFECTION is making a mistake and getting up fast.
