Monday Mottoes – #34

i-have-not-failed-ive-just-found-10000-ways-that-wont-workYou deserve congratulations because you’re in the race.  You haven’t dropped out, given up, or quit.  And even if you have, and dusted yourself off again, you’re giving it your best shot now.

You live in the present, not in the past of regrets, or in the future of what-might-be, but in the very real present of now, what you can control… to the best of your ability.

Leave the rest in the hands of the Lord.  He can handle life, even when we can’t.failure-is-a-path-to-success

Which brings us to today’s motto, a very well-known one:  “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” ~Thomas Edison

Ten thousand attempts.  I probably would have given up at 100.  But Edison worked at it, worked at it, worked at it, until he came out on top.  We could say, “He burned the midnight oil” in trying to figure out the light bulb.

We’re not talking about doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.  Be flexible and willing to tweak it  Approach it from a different way.  Don’t give up, even when you believe you’ve exhausted all of your options.  You will find a way.

Happy Monday, everyone!
