Thomas Edison on failure
Thomas Edison's most memorable invention was the light bulb, which purportedly took him 1,000 tries before he developed a successful prototype: How did it feel to fail 1,000 times?” a reporter asked. “I didn’t fail 1,000 times, Edison responded. The light bulb was an invention with 1,000 steps.”

"Success is not final; failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts."


1. Don't make it personal

Separate the failure from your identity. Just because you haven’t found a successful way of doing something (yet) doesn’t mean you are a failure .

 These are completely separate thoughts, yet many of us blur the lines between them.  Personalizing failure can wreak havoc on our self-esteem and confidence.
