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.”

Unless you wish to aspire to the same pain in redundancy, get the lesson of a painful experience as early as possible, and make changes, accordingly. – Bill McCurdy

Never give up as one never knows how and when one can change the world.
