    Agreeing to work on low wages and still sticking to the job when I had the chance to earn more as well! Really, believe me employers have no soft corner for such people. They think these are wastes whom I have given a chance to earn.

    The biggest mistakes I have made have mostly been not having the courage and determination to pursue something I really wanted. Now that I'm older I make a big effort not to do that any more. If I want something I go for it. Failing to reach a goal is something I can live with, not really trying is something that is much more difficult to live with.

    My biggest mistake is I think I was not able to go with my dream or with what I really want,opportunities came but I did not grab it.

    Mine is being indecisive in every aspect of my life. I need to learn to just go for it.

    I think mine is being too indecisive but I'm not too sure.

    The biggest learning experience I have encountered was, and still is, thinking that a project (or getting to a goal) is easy until I have really tried it. Sometimes the perfect plan is not so "perfect" until you take action into it because of other unexpected factors that you may find a long the way.

    The mistake I have made is having many plans that I think are stressing me for nothing.

    brandy it sounds like you need to pick one plan and focus on it until you either make it successful or decide to abandon it. Do you think that would help you?

    Yes I too have a problem with making plans for the future. I have been making an effort lately to plan for the future and think in terms of years instead of days!
    I'm finding it easier to achieve my goals

    If you have a dream, you should follow it. It will end up annoying you while times goes on and you don't want to leave it until it's too late.
