    Not knowing the foreign language first before moving, it is a barrier to me achieving my goals in marketing my book I am trying to fix this problem by having my book translated in the foreign language and also learning the language.

    Being closed minded. Wasting a lot of time in one direction, my direction, when if I had listened I might have found another route.

    Choosing the wrong type of men.  Men who thought abuse was love.  I changed my head and heart to know I deserved to be loved the right way and found the best man any woman could have.  After most of my adult life living with abuse, I can finally live and be me.  I am pampered like a princess with no payment required.  I love me now.

    So far, because there's a possibility of making more serious mistakes, it was taking medication to lose weight (prescribed by a doctor) which worked in the brain. It's side-effects were such that not only did I change in character but climaxed with paranoia. Never will I do that again.

      When the brain hasn't got the chemical which tells you: I'M NOT HUNGRY, doing it on your own is like SWIMMING AGAINST THE CURRENT; hard to impossible

    This question has been asked earlier by some one else in a different way.Mistake is a mistake there is nothing like a greatest mistake.People do all types of mistake which one can you call greatest mistake.You learn from mistake and live or get punished and repent later if your mistake is disobeying law.If your mistake is something else it has to be corrected and not repeated.If you have done a mistake knowingly there must be some justification for that.If you have done unknowingly it is another mater and it must be told to some one immediately.You should take that person's openeen if you find it is a good openeen.If you find it otherwise you should ask some one else.As for my mistakes done I do not think that my mistakes are greatest to tell but they are mistakes and some body got hurt.That was not my intention but it was the truth and it hurt that person.My mistakes are all telling the truth and that was perhaps the greatest mistakes these days.You better not not tell truth but avoid telling it,Never tell a truth and never tell a lie.

    After Katrina, I kept my school open much longer than I should have
    and lost a huge amount of money.  I eventually sold it to some people
    who had a school in Baton Rouge and wanted mine as a satellite school.
    I have worked at home as a scopist and proofreader for some of my students
    since then and the debt is slowing going away. 

    It was a very emotional decision, hating to take away the only stability the
    students who lost their homes had, hating to lose something I had worked
    so hard for.  Anyway, it was mistake.  I read a book years ago that said something like this:  We are all free to make any decisions we want in life.  We are not free; however, from living with the consequences of those decisions. 

    So I'm living with mine.

    The greatest mistake in my life was to start drinking alcohol and then over time became addicted to it. After many years of denial I finally surrendered to the one thing that could of ruined my life and in time killed me.

    Sobriety is the Greatest thing on Earth!!!

    I have made choices - not mistakes!  Some of the choice were not so smart and they have shaped me into who I am today.

    I think I made some mistakes early on, but then again there are no mistakes if a lesson was learned.  It is only a mistake if you make it twice and I think having that mindset has been my best defense against continuing to walk down the line that encompasses error in judgment.

    My Feelings on Fairness Treating people fairly in a start-up company means giving them a reward that is proportionate to the contributions made relative to others participating in the business. In other words, if you make 75% of the necessary contributions to a company you should enjoy 75% of the benefits when that company someday starts generating excess cash either from operations or the sale of all or part of the equity. However, because people generally lack a method for valuing and monitoring the various inputs made by an individual (more on this later), fairness tends to be highly subjective and difficult to achieve.

    When a group of people work together towards a common goal they are a team, but when it comes time to negotiate their slice of the equity it’s every man for himself. It pits start-up brother against start-up brother (or sister, of course). Individuals naturally act in their self-interest and when the split isn’t clear greed creeps in. Even when individuals have good intentions mistakes will be made. For instance, when two founders go “50/50” on a business one inevitably makes a disproportionate contribution and they will both know it.

    There are two directions of unfairness. The first is someone having less than they deserve and the second is someone having more than they deserve. Both can cause irreparable damage to an otherwise healthy relationship, especially as the stakes get higher. In a good start-up, the stakes start out low, but get high (hopefully). When the stakes are high the negative feelings caused by unfairness manifest themselves in arguments, resentment and sometimes legal battles which can take their toll, if not destroy, a young company. my reference www.slicingpie.com
