The Best Still Have Setbacks

your humble host

So will you.

Your setbacks might happen before you have any successes.

It’s likely they will, in fact.

What separates the best from everyone else is THE BEST KEEP GOING.

Learn from the mistakes and move on. Your future best stuff is better than your current best stuff.

If you gave something your all and it doesn’t succeed, maybe you simply learned ways it didn’t work. But some future success may very well depend on having learned that lesson.

  1. When, on his 1,000th try, Thomas A. Edison finally invented the light bulb, he was asked how it felt to fail 999 times. They say his answer was, he never failed, he merely found 999 ways it wouldn’t work

    1. And that’s the right thing to say and that’s the right mindset, but there are plenty of times when we are going to feel discouraged. The difference is if you had quit at number 999, you know?

      I can’t stand thinking that it might be the very next thing I do that makes the difference. If I don’t do it… Then I live with what if the rest of my life. It’s just intolerable to me.
