A Process Map 4 Success – The Importance of Mistakes

A friend sent me the following quote and I, like him, felt that it’s worth sharing:

*What is the Secret of SUCCESS. . . ? “RIGHT DECISIONS”
*How do you make Right Decisions. . . ? “EXPERIENCE”
*How do you get Experience. . . ? “WRONG DECISIONS”

This is the reason why you may be asked for examples of when you have made a mistake, and if you regret anything and what lessons you took from such instances. Companies want to see that you have the potential for success.

Everyone has made mistakes. If you haven’t, then either you have failed to recognize your mistakes and therefore missed opportunities for improvement, or you simply have not been challenged sufficiently. Therefore think hard, look deep and never pass up the chance to become a better person, however tough that might be.
