The man who does things makes many mistakes, but he never makes the
biggest mistake of all -- doing nothing.
The ability to learn from mistakes is very important. There is an
important NLP presupposition `experience has a structure'. This means
that our mind is structured by experience. We talk about how strong
should be the basic structure of a building. The stronger the
structure, the more load a building can take.
In the context of self development trying out something new is very
important. It is a human nature to maintain status quo and not taking
any risk can be a virtue for someone. You can avoid tension and
stress. But, you don't develop with such a mindset.
Start something new. Experiment in an area which you have not
attempted. Be ready to fail. Listen to the voice of dissent from those
who care for your well being. Invest your time and money on a project
for which you are least qualified. Of course you will fail. But never
fail to learn from such mistakes!
May be it is good idea to record all the mistakes you did, small and
big, and note what you learnt from such mistakes!

The rest of your life.
Must be willing to be hated, at least temporarily, until someone needs $5.
Must be willing to bite tongue repeatedly.
Also, must possess the physical stamina of a pack mule and be able to go from zero to 60 mph in three seconds flat in case, this time, the screams from the backyard are not someone just crying wolf.
Must be willing to face stimulating technical challenges, such as small gadget repair, mysteriously sluggish toilets and stuck zippers.
Must screen phone calls, maintain calendars and coordinate production of multiple homework projects.
Must have ability to plan and organize social gatherings for clients of all ages and mental outlooks.

POSSIBILITY FOR ADVANCEMENT & PROMOTION :
Your job is to remain in the same position for years, without complaining, constantly retraining and updating your skills, so that those in your charge can ultimately surpass you.
PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE :
None required unfortunately.
On-the-job training offered on a continually exhausting basis.
WAGES AND COMPENSATION :
Get this! You pay them!
Offering frequent raises and bonuses.
A balloon payment is due when they turn 18 because of the assumption that college will help them become financially independent.
When you die, you give them whatever is left.
The oddest thing about this reverse-salary scheme is that you actually enjoy it and wish you could only do more.
While no health or dental insurance, no pension, no tuition reimbursement, no paid holidays and no stock options are offered; this job supplies limitless opportunities for personal growth, unconditional love, and free hugs and kisses for life if you play your cards right.
AND A FOOTNOTE "THERE IS NO RETIREMENT -- EVER!!!
