“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that don’t work” – Thomas Edison
This week’s quote comes from inventor of the lightbulb Thomas Edison, and with good reason. Faced with the new year and the endless possibilities of re-creating, re-inventing, or re-booting yourself, the idea of self-revolutionising can be daunting. Many people can’t bear the overwhelming-ness of it and run and hide under their duvet with a milk tray.
Every journey starts with one step. Every achievement, every success, every medal- these are all the final product of a collective sequence of actions. The people who achieved these things? They worked day in, day out, tweaking, training, trying, doing every little thing possible to make their dream happen. Thomas Edison to Abraham Lincoln, Usain Bolt to Virginia Woolf, Maria Testino to Helena Bonham Carter; hard work makes dreams happen.
