    Admitting a mistake, and taking responsibility for your actions requires guts, courage and tremendous humility. Many people misconstrue the step of accountabiliy as a weakness. ou mustn't think that way, because it's not your weakness at all. On the contrary, it shows your open minded character, and an openness of your heart. Saying "Sorry" needs higher level of intellectual capacity, above and beyond ordinary. Only a strong and well-balanced individual with character and clarity of mind can do it effortlessly. Be proud while taking responsibility for your actions. Be proud, because that's the only part of your character that will differentiate you and uplift you from the crowd. It will make you what you truly are - the "cut above the rest" and extraordinary.
