NEVER, EVER GIVE UP!

In his attempts to improve the impractical light bulb designs previously developed by others, Thomas Edison was successful in finding several hundred more ways that didn’t work. However, he learned something from each “successful” failure. Edison believed in himself and felt he would eventually find the solution, so he kept trying.

Finally, the day came when a bright light within a tube of glass would change the world—Edison’s dream to make a commercially viable light bulb became a reality.

We should be thankful Edison kept trying—look how far we’ve come since his successful “bright” day.

May we all strive to be like Edison…

Never, Ever Give Up!

I came.

I tried.

I failed.

I tried again—and I failed.

Again, I tried.

I failed again.

I tried a 100 more times.

I failed a 100 more times.

I tried once more.

I finally succeeded!

If you believe in yourself,

Never, Ever Give Up!

THE PERSON IN THE MIRROR

 

When things go wrong for us, we often look around to place the blame on others. It’s human nature to do this, but in reality, others may not have had anything to do with us falling short of our goals. We must look deeper if we are to find the real culprit(s).

It’s usually the last item we are willing to consider, but the one thing that might be preventing us from reaching the level of success we desire in life is often the person we see when we look into a mirror. That’s right—you and me!

So, instead of wasting time looking for reasons to blame others, have a pep-talk with the person in the mirror and then get back on road to success. Identify and work on what caused the less-than-desired results and always, always,

BELIEVE IN YOURSELF.
