Thomas Edison tried two thousand different materials in search of a filament for the light bulb. When none worked satisfactorily, his assistant complained, "All our work is in vain. We have learned nothing."

Edison replied very confidently, "Oh, we have come a long way and we have learned a lot. We now that there are two thousand elements which we cannot use to make a good light bulb."

Proper Motivation

Created on 27 January 2011
A story has it that, late one night, a party-goer decided it would be best to walk home. He found a short cut through a poorly-lit cemetery and, in the darkness, stumbled into an open grave. He tried to climb out but the walls were too slippery. Again and again he fell back into the grave. Finally, in exhaustion, he settled in a corner to wait for sunlight -- to be rescued.

A few minutes later another man cutting through the cemetery fell victim to the same grave. He, too, tried desperately to climb and claw his way out, and he was equally unsuccessful. As he was about to give up in hopeless resignation, he heard a voice from the darkness of his pit: "You'll never get out of here."

He did!!!

He just needed the proper motivation! And in this case, a shot of fear did the trick! But when it comes to finding the motivation to do most worthwhile things, his example is the exception.

I am learning that the best motivation, whether I want to accomplish a task, go back to school, start something new or kick a habit, usually comes from the inside. To be successful, I must WANT to do it. Others may certainly help in their encouragement or in "pumping me up," but, in the end, I will usually be successful only if I have enough desire.
