One day an extremely upset newspaper subscriber stormed into a newspaper office waving the current edition, asking to see “whoever wrote the obituary column”.

When referred to a young reporter, he stormed, “You can see I’m very much alive, and you’ve put me in the obituary column! I demand a retraction!”

Replied the reporter, “I never retract a story but I tell you what I’ll do. I’ll put you in the birth column and give you a fresh start.”

I certainly have.

Some people will never admit their mistakes and worst, some people will never want to correct their mistakes the proper way.

Have you ever committed mistakes in your life?


You’re probably thinking, “What a stupid question, of course I have.”

Well now that you have admitted you’re committing mistakes from time to time, how do you deal with your mistakes?

Mistakes that offend others, you have to be big and courageous enough to admit your mistake and make amends. But mistakes that you have done to yourself… think through them and learn from them. Mistakes are experiences in life that teach us lessons and make us wiser over time but the key thing here is that we have to learn from them.

When people say, “Experience is the best teacher….” I smile because I know this is not true. Only evaluated experience is the best teacher. As a people, we keep on making the same mistakes year in and year out because we have never taken the time to evaluate the experience, learn from it and resolve to correct it.

Smart people learn from their mistakes. But here is another thing to consider.

Smarter people learn from the mistakes of others.

Somebody says mistakes are mistakes but it’s a question of perspectives and it depends on how you really look at it.

Consider the following:

If a barber makes a mistake, it’s a new style…If a driver makes a mistake, it is an accident…If an engineer makes a mistake, It is a new venture…If parents make a mistake, it is a new generation…If a politician makes a mistake, it is a new law…If a scientist makes a mistake, it is a new invention…If a tailor makes a mistake, it is a new fashion…If a teacher makes a mistake, it is a new theory…If our boss makes a mistake, it is our mistake……If an employee makes a mistake, It is a “MISTAKE”I have committed a lot of mistakes in my life and some of them not very smart but most of them offered lessons I have learned from and has helped me a lot in my life and career today.

Some people cuss and some people curse when they make a mistakes but most people say: “oops!”

I do. But there are people I am sure you would not want to hear say “oops! From:”

1. Your surgeon.

2. Your dentist.

3. Your nurse.

4. Your hairdresser.

5. Your mechanic.

6. Your tax accountant.

7. The computer tech person.

8. The house painter, plumber or electrician.

9. The pilot.

You know you are growing and you know you are learning if you are making new mistakes. The key word here is “NEW.” But if you are committing the same kind of mistakes then YOU ARE THE MISTAKE!

Learn from the mistakes of others – you can never live long enough to make them all yourself.

CICERO, the Roman statesman and philosopher, wrote the following some 2,000 years ago: THE SIX FATAL MISTAKES OF MAN:

The delusion that personal gain is made by crushing others;The tendency to worry about things that cannot be changed or corrected;Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it;Refusing to set aside trivial preferences;Neglecting development and refinement of the mind, and not acquiring the habit reading and studying;Attempting to compel others to believe and live as we do.Welcome mistakes. They are our friends but they should also be our teachers.

Accept them and do not defend them.

Elbert Hubbard says it best: “The greatest mistake a man can make is to be afraid to make one.”

I want to express appreciation to the writer for bailing me out of such a matter. Just after researching throughout the internet and coming across advice which were not productive, I assumed my entire life was well over. Living devoid of the answers to the issues you've solved through your good short article is a crucial case, as well as the ones that could have in a wrong way affected my career if I hadn't come across your blog. Your talents and kindness in handling all things was precious. I don't know what I would have done if I hadn't encountered such a thing like this. I am able to at this point look ahead to my future. Thanks very much for this high quality and result oriented guide. I won't be reluctant to propose your site to anyone who ought to have guidance on this topic.
