I remember the story of the inventor Thomas Edison…
When Edison invented the electric bulb, he needed over 1000 experiments…
After the first 500 attempts, all of his assistants left him. Even a Reporter came to Edison and asked: How is it going on?
Edison replied relaxed and cheerful, every day it is going better.
The reporter asked, what are your results that you are so cheerful?
I have found out that 500 constructions failed, so I know much more!
The reporter asked, is this not devastating, you are working so hard and you don’t have any results …?
Edison said: I have because I know what is not working!
Why are you cheerful?
Because this designing of new technology is so exciting, I could not imagine anything else that is more fun or exciting…
After 1000 experiments his electric bulb was burning. In the late night, Edison entered the room of his wife and exclaimed: My bulb is burning!
His wife replied angrily, make the light off I want to sleep!!!
Life is Life!!!
Thomas Edison should be a raw model for us all!
His attitude was:
Enjoy your work, regardless how frustrating your job is.
Be focused on the here and now and don’t focus on the temporary results.
Do your best, regardless what. For instance, when Edison want the Electricity in the City, he even worked as a street worker to get the cable installed.
Do not give up.
If we are under tension, we lose our creativity and attract a worse outcome.
Every obstacle that we have, is created from inside.
So more we put us under tension so more obstacle we will have!
What is inside is outside!
Don’t blemish anything or anybody else for your struggles!!!
This means if we or other think “ there is no way”, we start to dig us our pit hole where we drop by ourselves!
Alone to think “there is no way”attract our tragedies.
Don’t be focus only on your goal, though that you will invite your suffering.
How is it to think, Everything is possible and to enjoy your work?
