Something Thomas Edison said

I believe he once said he had not failed, he just tried many methods which did not work. Obviously he was not deterred from setbacks. I have been in situations where I have done my best but the outcome was not successful. The adjective failure is not a profane one. It means that something did not work out as we had hoped it would. We can use failures/mistakes/setbacks to hjelp us learn and grow in the future.

Really speaks to me.

I'm a big quitter. I quit jobs, I move apts., I drop friends. I've never thought of staying and doing all I could do. I usually become unhappy, then leave. I was always proud of my strength to be able to leave. But now I hear a different message: Be brave enough to try to make a change. Thank you.

Going past my comfort zone.

In about a month I will be performing in a piano recital. The 3 pieces I will be playing will be played from memory. This is something I have never done before and memorizing these works is a real challenge. Will I make mistakes? Will I have a lapse or two during the performance? Perhaps one or both of these incidents will occur. However, making one or both of these mistakes is not a crime. Here's to going to the nth degree!!

Hi, I just heard you speaking about try and pursue your goals and I really saw myself even if I'm not trying as hard as I should.
Congratulations!

I love this!

I recently had someone at work tell me that I shouldn't care so much. I should just let things go. But I told her I have to try to made things better. I love your wisdom. I read all your articles and listen to all your videos. So inspiring... thank you!
