You'll make mistakes at first. You wouldn't be human if you did not. Some of them you'll find out for yourself, others will be pointed out to you, none too gently perhaps, by your colleagues or the Chief. There is one mistake, however, that you must never make - that of refusing to acknowledge your error and accept correction. It is a lack not only of humility but of intelligence never to admit that you are wrong.
So own up to your mistakes - and then let your companions forget all about them. They don't want to listen to your self-depreciation all the time. If you really want to overcome your failings you'll stop talking about them and get down to the job. Deserved rebukes you'll accept as cheerfully as you can. What about the underserved ones? Of course you owe it to yourself to make it clear to so-and-so that this time the fault is not yours. But - would it hurt you very much if, once in a while you let the matter go, remembering Him who when accused, "and answered not a word"? Try it and see.
