Life isnt always easy, and more often than not you are going to face some kind of a choice. Sometimes the choices are easy, “do I eat the chocolate or strawberry flavoured ice cream?”, sometimes the choices are hard “do I accept the low with lower pay but higher satisfaction or the well paid job, that might rob me of my life joys?”.
I watched a movie with the actor Jason Statham called, I believe, The Mechanic, and somewhere in the movie, he says this:

Now, when I first heard the quote I instantly took it to me. I am not quite sure why, but the quote somehow makes sense to me, in a way that I find hard to explain. It is like how we know not to put our hand on a burning stove. We know it is a bad idea, because we did it once before and we got hurt. It is kind of the same logic with this quote, and I think it is very true in many instances. We make a bad choice, we learn from it and more importantly, we learn not to make the same mistake again.
