Einstein’s wise “mistake”

Albert Einstein once wrote on a blackboard

9 x 1 = 9

9 x 2 = 18

9 x 3 = 27

9 x 4 = 36

9 x 5 = 45

9 x 6 = 54

9 x 7 = 63

9 x 8 = 72

9 x 9 = 81

9 x 10 = 91

Suddenly chaos broke out in the classroom because Einstein made a mistake. Obviously, the correct answer to 9 × 10 is not 91. And all his students were making fun of him.

Einstein waited for everyone to be silent and said: “Despite the fact that I analyzed nine problems correctly, no one congratulated me. But when I made a mistake, everyone started laughing.

This means that even if a person is successful and smart, society will notice his slightest mistake and look for his imperfections. And they will like it because they do not like to feel inferior. So do not let criticism ruin your dreams. The only person who never makes a mistake is someone who does nothing and the better you are than the others you decide that the more criticism you will receive.

If they can not reach you, they will try to throw you to reach you.
