130 years ago, an idea changed your world. It was Thomas A. Edison’s motivation that snuffed out ten thousand failures and, finally, switched on the incandescent electric light to beam the great electrical age into our lives and homes.
You have failed many times, although you may not remember. You fell down the first time you tried to walk. Did you hit the ball the first time you swung a bat? Neither get satisfied with present accomplishments, and nor stop striving for greater heights, because I realize that trying your best in everything that you do is the only way to avoid regrets.

Persistence and perseverance to achieve a goal are never a waste of time. ” You are the only one that can stop you from reaching your goals.” Those who say : can’t and impossible will do well to learn the philosophy from the poem.
If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think that you dare not – you don’t.
If you’d like to win but think you can’t.
It’s almost a cinch you won’t.
If you think you’ll lose- you’ve lost !!
Don’t wait for a crisis to discover your hidden abilities, develop it in every day life to enrich the lives of others as well as your own.
If man is progressive, eager and receptive and ever planning to improve, he will lead others. To remain at the top, you have to work much harder than those behind you. All they need to do is imitate you to catch up.
