Thomas Edison, The Lightbulb, And The Power Of Trying 1000 Times

• Change the way you think about failure. Challenge and adversity are the best teachers you will ever have in life. Instead of getting upset when things don’t go your way, become curious about what happened and why, then try again, but this time do it better!

• Forget about things like genius or innate talent. They’re nice to have, but the people who get ahead are simply those who are willing to work hard and do it consistently.

• Adopt a growth mindset and constantly turn your attention, not to what is going wrong, but to the infinite world of the possible. There is a way out of your current predicament – how are you going to get from here to there?
