How many times did you fail this week? If you aren’t failing, maybe you aren’t tackling big enough problems! Failure is not a sign you should quit, only a chance for you to get back up and try again. Get creative! Don’t let failure keep you down!
Thomas Edison is famous for his invention of the light bulb and often cited as an example of the “don’t give up” principle in action. I love candles, but I am sure am glad he persisted to invent a working light bulb! Here are a few of his famous words:
I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work. ~Thomas Edison
Many of life’s failures are men who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up. ~Thomas Edison
Nearly every man who develops an idea works at it up to the point where it looks impossible, and then gets discouraged. That’s not the place to become discouraged. ~Thomas Edison
Failure isn’t the end. You just need a little perspective shift. Take a few minutes and watch this video from Honda about failure and success.
