You Only Fail When You Fail to Learn

If you’re reading this anywhere near a lightbulb, you have Thomas Edison’s failures to thank for the light you see. He worked on the invention of the lightbulb for years, failing over 1,000 times, although he didn’t see it that way.  

Asked how it felt to fail 1,000 times, he said “I didn’t fail 1,000 times. The lightbulb was an invention with 1,000 steps.”
