“A teacher came into her class and wrote the following on the board… 9×1=7 9×2=18 9×3=27 9×4=36 9×5=45 9×6=54 9×7=63 9×8=72 9×9=81 9×10-90 When she was done, she looked to the students and they were ALL laughing at her for getting the first equation wrong. The teacher let the laughter die down and then said the following; ‘I wrote that first one wrong on purpose because I wanted you to see how the world will treat you when you mess up. I got ONE thing wrong. But I wrote right answer 9 times. This is how many people in the world will treat you. They will criticize the one wrong thing you do and skip over the million good things you’ve done.’
