Failure vs. Success: The Thomas Edison Approach
“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.” ~Thomas Edison
Let’s cut to the chase here and make this simple and to the point. It is a lot easier to get discouraged then we think. People can discourage us on a regular basis, negative situations, obstacles, hardships, and challenges as well. Don’t let everyday frustrations get in the way of your vision for your life or what you are trying to accomplish. You are often so close to reaching your goal, when you decide it isn’t worth it anymore and you give up. The best way to demonstrate courage to those negative people in your life that give you such a hard time, is to prove them all wrong.
Don’t take it Personally

“Don’t take anything personally. Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering” ~Miguel Ruiz
Inspiration and a daily reminder to myself, in all areas of my life. I always have to remember that the world does NOT revolve around me. I can only control my own reactions, thoughts, and life. Period.

If you are scrambling for motivation, try being open to random inspiration. Yes, even a car commercial can inspire you. I find this Mazda commercial absolutely genius and its message overwhelmingly brilliant. The creative team that wrote this commercial, constructed the message, scripted it out, and story boarded it, deserves a nice raise.
“Let him that would move the world first move himself.”
