December 2018 HTSAAIL™ of the Month - Thomas Edison
Our December 2018 HTSAAIL™ of the month is Thomas Edison.
We have all heard that Thomas Edison failed 10,000 times before he invented the light bulb.
Thomas Edison’s journey followed the same process as any other inventor looking to create a product or change the world.
Fail and Try Again until you Succeed.
But what other facts and interesting quotes did Thomas Edison provide us?
Here are some words of wisdom from Thomas Edison:
“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.”
"When I have fully decided that a result is worth getting I go ahead of it and make trial after trial until it comes.”
"Be courageous. I have seen many depressions in business. Always America has emerged from these stronger and more prosperous. Be brave as your fathers before you. Have faith! Go forward!"
Thomas Edison was granted over 1093 patents over his lifetime.
Let us take a moment to think about it.
OVER 1093 patents!
That is over 1000 different inventions ranging from light bulbs to printing telegraph apparatuses!
1 invention alone requires months if not years of failure to finally become a success.
The amount of times an inventor comes to a block in the road and has 2 choices to make: Either quit and give up or try again and finding a way that works.
Thomas Edison is one of our prime examples of NEVER EVER GIVE UP.
FAIL. TRY AGAIN.
