It is important to take a step back and reflect once in a while. Enjoy this quote and see if you can find a way to relate it to your life.
Thomas Edison built a legacy by taking chances, which were seldom successful. More than anything, he made progress by failing over and over again and learning what not to do. In the process of creativity, often times things turn out differently than the creator imagined. Success comes from turning these failures into something fabulous. We wouldn’t have many of our worldly pieces of art if the artist threw away their project every time they made a mistake. Instead, they learn to be creative and incorporate that mistake into the artwork. An accidental drip of paint can turn into an unplanned tree in a landscape, or an accidental chip in a sculpture can become a part of the texture used to give it life. What makes someone great isn’t failing to make mistakes, it’s making the most out of the mistakes we’re met with.
