A Valuable Lesson About Mistakes

One day, a school teacher wrote the following on a chalkboard……

9x1=7

9x2=18

9x3=27

9x4=36

9x5=45

9x6-54

When he finished he looked to his students and the class began to laugh.

When he asked them why, one student pointed out that the first equation was wrong.

The teacher responded by saying, “ I wrote the first on wrong on purpose to show you something very important.

This is how the world will treat you…..

You can see that I wrote 5 other RIGHT answers, but none of you gave me recognition for that.

You all laughed and criticized me for the one wrong thing that I did.

The world will not always appreciate the good that you do, but it will put you down for the one wrong mistake you make.

Always rise above the criticism and stay strong!

We are human and unfortunately mistakes are part of our makeup.

No matter what your past has been, you have a spotless future.

Keep working on being the Best Version of Yourself!
