Khloe Kardashian is sharing some wise words with fans that she has gained from the experiences of her life.
In a new interview with Elle, the Good American founder said, “We’re all going to make mistakes. If you don’t make mistakes, I think that’s weird. You’re supposed to fail. You’re supposed to crash and burn. You have to experience things for yourself.”
The Kardashians star, 38, added, “It’s like when you have a teenage daughter, and you know they’re going to mess up and do crazy things, but you have to let them do it themselves, so they learn. It’s the same thing in business.”
Khloe noted that people shouldn’t be embarrassed to ask others for help if they don’t understand something. “It’s okay to ask questions regardless of how silly you think they are because if you don’t know, you’re never going to know unless you ask someone more seasoned than you to explain it and walk you through it,” she continued. “It’s okay to look like you don’t know everything. Sometimes that takes more confidence than it does to be the one who knows it all and is super arrogant.”
Relying on her “momager” Kris Jennner and her sisters, Khloe said she is “super lucky that we have each other because we ask each other for advice or information. We’re not girls that are haters or are envious of one another. We get inspired and motivated by each other’s success. Just watching my sisters and all of their hustle—and my mom, my brother, everyone— it’s definitely inspiring. I think you learn either from someone’s mistakes or how they succeeded so well.”
Khloe, who shares daughter True, 4, and a newborn son with ex Tristan Thompson, also opened up for the first time about how life has been since she and the NBA star welcomed their son by surrogate earlier this summer.
“I know it’s cliché, but I love everything, even the hard parts. [My kids] challenge me as a person, and being able to shape little people into really incredible big people is an honor and a gift,” she said. “We have to take those roles seriously, especially in today’s day and age, with how much accessibility children have and the information they’re exposed to so young. It’s super scary, but I take my job very seriously. I love it so much.”
