Same as all the others. Old fashioned 'one' usage.

profits from..mistakes sounds awkward to me. How about changing it to learn from..mistakes? or would it diverge from the japanese?

Actually, after thinking about it some more, I don't really like this sentence (in English or Japanese). I think it could probably be deleted (and I'll add a sentence pair that has a similar theme).
