“I didn’t fail 1,000 times. The light bulb was an invention with 1,000 steps.”
That is Thomas Edison’s words up there! Thomas Edison was the inventor of the light bulb, but it did not come as easy as we have it now. He had 1,000 unsuccessful attempts at inventing the bulb. After he achieved it successfully, a reporter asked, “How did it feel to fail 1,000 times?” and his response was astounding, he was like, I did not fail 1,000 times, it was the inventory process that racked up to the number, the process requires much commitment and passion.
Without fuel, a vehicle cannot move. Similarly, without passion, you will not move toward success. Thomas Edison’s passion drove him above the failure limit. He did not see failure, but an opportunity to try once more. In most cases, success is not something that happens effortlessly, it comes about by way of a passion. It is important that you have the strength and willpower, to pursue dreams.
Cultivating love for your growth is the most important part of success. Without a relentless effort for your life, you will never achieve greatness. Growth does not happen overnight, but with discipline and commitment, you will succeed. However, do not be mediocre; you must understand what you are meant for and what is meant for you. This strictly revolves around purpose. You cannot be aimlessly enthusiastic and expect good fortune like magic. Understanding your purpose will give you the right drive of being enthusiastic.
Irrespective of the number of failures and fruitless attempts, if the force driving you to success is a good gauge, you would not consider giving up an option or take failure as a fate.
Passion is a key that unlocks the gates of success. It drives fear away, creates unbreakable courage, and builds strength for fulfillment. When you are enthusiastic, nothing will be too strong to hinder you from moving and scaling in life. You will get enough strength to pierce obstacles and energy to fight all enemies of progress and success.
Finally, you can easily get frustrated if your passion does not align, and you will be overcome by failure if your passion is negatively channeled. Always remember that a negative passion does not produce a good result.
When you love something, you have an extremely elevated level of determination. Passion is more than just a general drive or enthusiasm. It arises when you are deeply attracted to something. The more you are excited about a particular pursuit, the harder you will work towards achieving your goal. If you want to reach your maximum potential, you must resist the forces of distraction and find meaningful work that matters to you.
Finally, this sounds like a major understatement, but its importance cannot be overstated. It is extremely easy to get frustrated and influenced by negativity when things are not falling into place. It is much easier to adopt a ‘what can go wrong will go wrong’ mentality than it is to adopt a ‘we can incrementally do better.” When this happens, sit back, and refuel your self will towards your success.
