“Many of life’s failures are people who did not realise how close they were to success when they gave up.”- Thomas Edison
Edison invented the light bulb, but not before eliminating 999 options.
You would never tell a child failing over for the tenth time when learning to walk ‘You are clearly not a walker’. Yet we tell ourselves and each other things like ‘You’re just not a singer’ or ‘You are clearly not a mathematician’ everyday.
Failing to learn to walk is not an option! It is something everyone learns. Some may learn fast and some may learn slow, but we all get there in the end! Most people who fail are those that give up when success is just around the corner. Keeping going until you get around the corner can be hard. You may feel it is impossible or can’t be done. But doing so will be the mark of character that you need. It will be the personal stretch that will aid you when you finally stand there with your success.
The mark of a successful person is someone who falls down 4 times, but gets back up 5 times.
Be someone who succeeds. Make the decision to commit today to stick it out until you hit gold!
