Thomas Edison Mistakes Page 2Author: Catherine Pulsifer
See reflections of a man who who had a positive attitude, a man who persevered and didn't let mistakes stop him. in theses words said by Thomas Edison: "Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up."
"Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time."
"Just because something doesn't do what you planned it to do doesn't mean it's useless."
Next Time You Make A Mistake
So the next time you make a mistake, or feel discouraged, read Mr. Edison's quotes and adopt his attitude on mistakes!
Now, on the other hand if you are terrified that you may make a critical mistake, you are not on uncommon ground. There are thousands upon thousands of people who shudder at the thought of failing. To many, many people, a mistake made is so foreign to their thinking that they continue on the same path that appears to be safe and secure. But, here is the sad but true fact. Nothing in life is safe and secure. To think this way is to live in a false reality.
Take for example a job that you have right now. You have been working at the same place for several years and have your life completely planned out from one year to the next. You know what to expect each day you venture to work and you know what you will probably do almost every weekend. Now, this may seem safe and secure but is it really?
What is the possibility of your workplace being sold to another company, or that the company or store is shut down because of failing profits?
The possibility of a sale of your company is very real today just as it has been for years and so is the possibility that your company or store could be shut down due to sinking profitability. So, is life secure or safe? No it is not. Are you prepared just in case to find another job?
You Can't Hide
You cannot possibly hide from failure, mistakes or anything that comes unexpectedly. Life doesn't work that way and never has.
