14 Many people make mistakes but refuse to admit them. They tend to see every obstacle or error as somebody else’s fault. As a result, they generally respond in one or more of the following ways:

15 They _____________ with a display of anger. (Blow up) They try to _______ their failure. (Cover up) They work _________ and _________, but without making changes. (Speed up) OVERREACT HIDE HARDERFASTER

16 They try to __________ their mistake. (Back up) They ______. (Give up) EXCUSE QUIT

17 Leadership expert, Peter Drucker, wrote: “The better a man is, the more mistakes he will make, for the more new things he will try. I would never promote to a top-level job a man who was not making mistakes…otherwise he is sure to be mediocre.” Mistakes really do pave the road to achievement.
