Thomas Edison stumbled and failed numerous times before achieving one of humanity’s greatest discoveries: the light bulb. But he never gave up. That was what made him succeed.
“I have not failed 10,000 times—I’ve successfully found 10,000 ways that will not work.” This is one of his most famous quotes, used abundantly for motivation and inspiration when we feel lost.
He also said that “when you think you’ve exhausted all options, remember this: you haven’t.”
We limit our own selves by what we choose to believe.
The world has far more to offer than what our mind tells us.
