I remember this talk show which featured a self made successful entrepreneur. She said that there are three things that will make you a success. 1. Determination 2. Ethics 3. Goal Indeed, giving up is the greatest mistake one can make. Of course, it also depends upon circumstances. But as far as Im concerned, I have a don't give up motto and in everything. I try to follow this motto and I have to say it has served me well over the past years.

My greatest mistake is to trust people. They take advantage of me and they abuse me. I'm easily convinced and I easily believe what they say. I'm merciful and so I become pitiful. I do not give up easily but in this case, I have to give up. I have now to choose friends.

My greatest mistake is to be too generous to people. I give almost all I have and they abuse. I'm too kind and so trusting to people. Giving up is not my problem because I'm not easy to give up.

I could not say that my greatest mistake is my desire to help people. I do help - all mine to give, and that's perhaps why God called me. I am not prone to give up also because I am that person who does not easily give up.

My greatest mistake is that I did not finish my studies when my mom was sending me to college. Yes, that tantamounts to giving up. I have given up studying. I just wanted a life that I could not have any responsibility at all.

My greatest mistake in life is trusting people who are close to me. They have used me for their own benefit and after that find ways to get rid of me. Anyway, this year, I have decided to cut it out of my life. My life will belong to me to live as I desire, not as others manipulated.

What you said is very true.. And for that, I think people those deserve a chance to prove their worth. That they should keep on standing whenever they fall, that we should support them whenever they need it. For me, my biggest mistake would be about not finishing my studies. But I know that there's no limit on age when it comes to finishing my studies, though I cannot do it right now, I plan on finishing it on the near future. My plans for now are, to help my family and save some money for my future.
