“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” ~ Thomas A. Edison~
A person should never give up. Just because something didn’t work one way, doesn’t mean that there is not a way. Failure is just the usual road of success. We must be able to learn from our mistakes, and use the lesson learned to grow.
Be persistent, approach every situation from different angles, it was because of persistence that Thomas Edison became a successful inventor. The human mind has endless ideas; it is how best we develop them. Nothing is ever perfect the first time, flaws will always be visible. Success does not happen overnight it is a continual process. When we choose to look at our failure as the building blocks of success, it takes on a new meaning. By doing so our mistakes become an arrow redirecting our path till we meet success.

“Anything that won’t sell, I don’t want to invent. Its sale is proof of utility, and utility is success.”
