1. You can't use an eraser to remove mistakes
Not even if you have a giant one.
2. Don't believe anybody that says they don't make mistakes.
They are lying.
3. Everybody makes mistakes
Yes, even mummy & daddy make mistakes *gasp*
4. There's no age limit to mistakes
Growing older doesn't mean you make less mistakes. You just make different ones.
5. Own your mistakes
Take responsibility and own up when you make mistakes. Remember, mummy & daddy will find out either way. We have special powers like that.
6. Mistakes are forgivable
Especially if you have the courage to admit them.
7. Do not fear mistakes
Sometimes you may need to be punished from your mistakes, but the reward from succeeding is much greater.
8. Mistakes are proof that you are trying
It's a stepping stone on the path to what you want to achieve, and more useful than doing nothing.
9. Learn from mistakes
You just learnt a new way of how to not succeed at the task. Try not to repeat that.
10. Learn from other people's mistakes
Knowing how others failed is not to gloat at them, but to know how improve and move on. Remember, you may laugh at your sister slipping on the banana skin, just make sure you don't do it yourself!
