Seven Mistakes

Seven Mistakes.

“There are seven mistakes of life that many of us make,” said a famous writer. These he listed in the following order:-

  • 1. The delusion that individual advancement is made by crushing others down.

  • 2. The tendency to worry about things that cannot be changed or corrected.

  • 3. Insisting that a thing is impossible because we ourselves cannot accomplish it.

  • 4. Refusing to set aside trivial preferences in order that important things may be accomplished.

  • 5. Neglecting development and refinement of the mind by not acquiring the habit of reading.

  • 6. Attempting to compel other persons to believe and live as we do.

  • 7. The failure to establish the habit of saving money.
