It took Thomas Edison over 2,000 attempts to invent the light bulb. When asked how he felt about his repeated failures, he replied “I never failed once. My invention just happened to be a 2,000 step process.”
Good morning! I am so glad Thomas Edison kept going, aren’t you? What is something in your life that you have given up on or aren’t pursuing as avidly as you might because it seems too hard or unattainable? What if, like Edison, it is a 2,000 step process? What if instead of thinking as your goal as unattainable, you realized how many of those 2,000 steps you have already taken?
Your Turn: Ask yourself where you have given up or been detoured by the idea of failure. This month embrace Edison’s quote to restart and rejuvenate your goal.
Today’s Affirmation: Failure does not exist, unless I choose to let it.
