“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.” ~ Thomas A. Edison; American inventor and businessman.
(He developed many devices that greatly influenced life around the world, including the motion picture camera and the electric light bulb you use. He failed or found obstacles more than a thousand times, as he himself said in an interview; but, nevertheless, he never gave up because his full heart was in his work. He turned out to be one of the greatest inventors of the world because of his philosophy of never giving up.)
Life is progress and never stagnation, success and never failure; however, man’s ego in pure ignorance has invented this concept of giving up, of failure whenever life brings a challenge.
If you can truly understand with all your being that failure and giving up are just false concepts, things created out of ego’s fear, entities that do not really exist but that you allow your mind to create, then you will begin to see life for what it really is, progress which never stops beautifying and growing. Thus your perception of life and of the challenges of life that you meet will change.
Do not follow the experiences or lifestyle of other people, even if they are your loved ones, but create your own path, your own magnificent destiny which has no limitations and fears. When you follow your goals or dreams, get inspiration from great men and women who have achieved great and noble things in their own lives–for example, such men like Mr. Thomas A. Edison (in the quote above).
Quite often, most of us tend to think that goals are too big or that great success is not for us, because we look at the big goals and we shrink in fear; but, when that happens and you see that big goal in your mind designing fear, focus on little steps and not on big ones, be patient and work on small things day by day, slowly, with intelligence and wisdom, because small things in time will create the bigger thing, the big goal.
The ancient Chinese philosopher and writer Lao Tzu very wisely said, “The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.”
Be patient and constant in your work.
And the key to all progress: Do something you enjoy, because it might take you a long time to realize your goal or dream, and the only thing that is going to stop you from quitting and give you desire and energy to continue is the enjoyment you get from what you do.
Be wise in this, people, do not rush into commitments or into your work. Always analyze your goals or dreams first, trace steps to take, and if your heart is truly in it, then, start with all happiness and energy.
