As life goes along we all make mistakes. No matter who you, king or serf, you will make mistakes.
The only difference amongst people is how they deal with mistakes:

- Admit but don’t learn from mistake
- Admit and learn from mistakes
The first category is reserved for people that have never had to pay the price. Mostly those born into wealth, fame or beauty.
The second category is reserved for those without the necessary IQ to reflect and learn from mistakes.
The last category is for entrepreneurs.
If you don’t make mistakes you’re not taking enough risk. If you’re not taking risk you can’t be an entrepreneur.
If you don’t learn from your mistakes you will never succeed in business.
