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?

> or would it diverge from the japanese?

No, you're right. learn would be better.

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).
