The Persistence of Thomas Edison

“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that don’t work.” –Thomas Edison

Really, where would we be without his persistence? And what about that inspiration? Not just in the dark! We wouldn’t have his example of never giving up until he reached that lightbulb goal.

Can you believe in the possibility of something so strongly that you’d be willing to “fail” 10,000 times?  Because you know without a doubt that you’re almost there? Just one more time and you might have it? Think about that and then say “Thank you Mr. Edison” for believing in the possibilities. Keep a few more of his words in mind:

“When you have exhausted all possibilities, remember this – you haven’t.”
