Our greatest weakness lies in giving up
“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time” ~ Thomas Edison
How many times have you found yourself trying to achieve something, and then giving up after a few attempts because “you didn’t get the wanted results”?
Maybe you gave up too early.
Maybe you didn’t try too hard.
Maybe you didn’t put too much effort.
Maybe you didn’t dedicate enough time.
Maybe you tried to find a shortcut.
Maybe you got distracted by another “shiny object”.
What if you gave one more try and really worked on it, putting 100% of your energy, talent and focus?
Considering that this quote is by Thomas Edison, the businessman who invented the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and the electric light bulb, we should probably listen to his advice: working hard and trying one more time will eventually pay off.
