I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work. - Thomas Alva Edison
I have heard this quote used in a variety of speeches, talks, and motivational writings. It really never gets old to me. Though I am sure many of you already know this, but the context is around Edison inventing the light bulb. He failed over 10,000 times at various attempts before he finally was able to create a stable filament that could carry a current and product light. His doggedness led to what is a significant part of our lives.
The next time you feel like all you are doing is failing, step back and see what you can learn from the situation. Perhaps you can pick something up that will help you succeed the next time. One of my favorite quotes that goes right along with this but in a more humorous tone is
I’ve been to the school of hard knocks, which is fine. It’s all these refresher courses I keep taking that bother me!
