Failure Is Not Final

Success begins on Sunday!


Here’s a leadershipology to help you start the week right on Sunday night. Here’s some things to THINK about, a story to BE moved by, and something you can DO right now.

Things from me (and someone else) to THINK about


“Your last failure is where your next success begins.”


“Successful and unsuccessful people do not vary greatly in their abilities. They vary in their desires to reach their potential.” – John Maxwell


A story to BE moved by

Throughout history, the power of perseverance has been a driving force behind great leaders. Thomas Edison, one of the most prolific inventors in history, is a prime example of what can be achieved when persistence meets passion.


Edison’s journey to invent the electric light bulb was filled with challenges and failures. It is said that he tried over 1,000 different materials for the filament before finding one that would work. When asked about his many failed attempts, Edison famously replied, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”


Edison’s unwavering persistence and refusal to accept failure as a final outcome ultimately led to the invention of the incandescent light bulb, which revolutionized the world.


This story serves as a reminder that great accomplishments often require perseverance in the face of adversity. Embrace setbacks as opportunities for growth and continue striving towards your goals.
