Mom: Arent u ashamed of committing this mistake?
Son: I m sorry, i ll see to it that it doesnt happen again.

I guess making mistakes forms the integral part of one's life. Right from the time we were born we have made mistakes all through, day in and day out...then why is that we r pushed to our maximum limit of patience when we commit a mistake....i have always wondered why most of the parents today do not see committing mistakes in the right spirit.Life is simply time given to man to learn how to live. Mistakes are always part of learning. The real dignity of life consists in cultivating a fine attitude towards our own mistakes and those of others.I have always felt that sucess very easily comes to people who learn from others mistakes... It is the fine tolerance of a fine soul. Man becomes great, not through never making mistakes, but by profiting by those he does make.Mistakes should always be seen as an oppurtunity for building better to-day because of one's poor yesterday. Sometimes mistakes teach you a lot more than what success does.I do not write this to say that u should keep commiting mistakes, but jus an opinion to say that if at all one does a mistake, do not make a fuss out of it. Genrally when people commit mistakes they get a little discouraged, but the tend to recover fast if their near and dear one's encourage them to move forward...

Mistakes are the biggest strenght when one after realization learns from it by rising with renewed strength, finer purpose and freshened courage every time he falls.

And here goes the conclusion with a closing note of Edison.

"Its not that I've failed 999 times.. Its that i've learnt 999 times how not to make a Bulb"
