“Diamonds are nothing more than chunks of coal that stuck to their jobs.” – Malcolm S. Forbes
We are a lazy society. We waste our potential. We strive to find shortcuts to everything. But I got news for you: there are no shortcuts in life. Trying to find one instead of doing the job right wastes time and energy. We try to reach the destination without acknowledging the journey. And sometimes it’s what we learn on the path that’s more important to our growth than the end of the path.
We learn more from our failures then we do from our successes. Thomas Edison failed 2000 times before he made the incandescent light bulb. When asked, he said he didn’t fail but merely found 2000 ways how not to make a light bulb. If you fall, get back up and try again. Become a proud failure, someone who never gives up, someone who always gives their entirety. The only way to fail is not to try.
