The One Things Winners NEVER Do.
Do you remember Thomas Edison? The guy that perfected the light bulb? Something very interesting about that.. When he finally declared, "yes, I have invented the light bulb" he didn't necessarily get it on his first try.
In fact, he said specifically that he, "failed ten thousand times" before he finally had a finished product.
He was met with a thing that is called “temporary defeat”.
Temporary defeat is failing... losing… being unsuccessful...
But one thing Edison did not do was Give Up! Could you imagine where we would be if Edison just gave up? We wouldn’t have light bulbs!
So why was he successful, even though he failed over... and over... and over again?
No man is ever a failure until he quits…. in his own mind.
It is SO EASY to quit on the first sign of defeat. It is what MOST people do. Including myself. I have quit doing plenty of things in my life. Sometimes I picked it back up... other times I did not.
But our success only depends on our determination to NOT QUIT.
Failure is part of our game. I have only gotten where I am today, not by getting everything right… but by failing and screwing up, then screwing up less and less as time goes on.
I am a product of my own failures. Everyone is.
The question is, are you going to take the easy way out and call it quits in your mind.
No one that expects any kind of success can reasonably expect to accumulate a fortune, be successful at business, change your life, without experiencing “temporary defeat”.
The key is... when defeat comes, accept it as a signal that what you are doing need to be adjusted and you TRY AGAIN.
Adjust your sails and move toward your goals, your dreams.
If you give up before your goal is reached... you are a “quitter”
Quitters never win and Winners never quit!
