If you are in a relationship and the other person consistently apologies for their “mistake” in some form of treatment or behavior they do to you… if it’s happened more than once, it’s not a mistake. It’s a DECISION. They have decided to treat you this way, and you have decided to allow them to do it… and they know it.

STOP tolerating this.

In business, if you make the same “mistake“ more than once, this is a DECISION, not a MISTAKE!

Mistakes are supposed to be learned from and not repeated.

The caliber of our lives is often due to the caliber of the decisions we make… Do not make the “mistake” of allowing someone to decide to treat you a particular way…

Life overall is a whole lot easier when we don’t repeat our mistakes — when we learn from them and make adjustments and get better.

One simple way to improve the quality of your life is to decide RIGHT NOW that you will stop repeating the mistakes you made and that you will stop allowing other people to repeat the mistakes they made in their treatment of you.

You want a “shortcut” to happiness and success? Learn from your mistakes and don’t repeat them!
