Weekly Quote


Before you ever let failure get you down and force you to quit, remember what Thomas Edison said about failure:

"I have not failed. I have just found 10,000 ways that won't work."

Thomas Edison (1847-1931)

I grew up with the philosophy that failure was not an option. No matter what kind of obstacle I have faced whether in life or in business, I have always refused to let failure win out. This way of thinking has enabled me to achieve things in life that I am certain most people who knew me (back in the day), would never have thought possible. Fortunately I listened to my way of thinking instead of theirs!

If you aren't succeeding at something you know in your heart you should be doing, don't give up! Just keep trying and perhaps yesterday's disappointment will turn into tomorrow's breakthrough!

Ripple On!!!
