If you could correct one mistake you made in life, which would it be?

Some say how you deal with mistakes shows character. I believe, the mistakes we make, at least the big ones, leave a lasting impression.

So, if you had an opportunity to undo a certain action or deed that has influenced your life, what would it be?

  • Jan 19 2013: I used to say that I should have stop dancing and start school earlier (to make sure I am able to get a "serious" job and real a "real" life). I thought that I wasted so much times going after my dreams, rather than following the masses. Today I realize that because of that dream, I was exposed to much broader education than the one I would have earned by attending school (which I did, just later). I know many great people, I've lived in nine different countries, I studies one of the most difficult arts, and when I stopped I was ready to start something new, and exciting. So, I think the answer is "I would never worry about making a mistake" - even if we do make them, we learn from them so there is no point of worrying.
