“Either I will find a way, or I will make one.” Philip Sidney
When do we stop learning? When I was young, I probably would have answered this question. With age and experience, I realise the answer is never. More importantly, it is how I learn. I will always have a choice in how I respond to my failures or success. There are always two ways to see life. Positively or negatively.
Thomas Edison tried two thousand different materials in search of a filament for the light bulb. When none worked satisfactorily, his assistant complained, “All our work is in vain. We have learned nothing.”
Edison replied very confidently, “Oh, we have come a long way and we have learned a lot. We know that there are two thousand elements which we cannot use to make a good light bulb.”
There is always something to learn.
