inkhappi’s October 2020 Calendar!
2020 has been tough on us all. I feel like I keep getting knocked down. And sometimes it’s hard to get back up. That’s why I chose this motivational thought this month.
Fall eight times, get up nine!
This thought made me think of Thomas Edison. In his 84 years, Thomas Edison acquired a record number of 1,093 patents (singly or jointly) and was the driving force behind such innovations as the phonograph, the incandescent light bulb and one of the earliest motion picture cameras. He also created the world’s first industrial research laboratory.
But all of that didn’t come without setbacks…
Thomas Edison’s teachers said he was “too stupid to learn anything.” He was fired from his first two jobs for being non-productive. As an inventor, Edison made 1,000 unsuccessful attempts at inventing the light bulb. When a reporter asked, “How did it feel to fail 1,000 times?” Edison replied, “I didn’t fail 1,000 times. The light bulb was an invention with 1,000 steps.”
You know how I love quotes and Thomas Edison has some great ones. Here’s some that go well with this thought.
Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration.I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves.There is no substitute for hard work.There’s a way to do it better – find it.
