Lesson from Thomas Edison
You and I can learn a great lesson from Thomas Edison. Thomas Edison had only 3 months of formal schooling. Yet, he is known as probably the greatest inventor in history. His 1,093 inventions changed the world, including motion pictures (movies/theatre), mimeograph machines, phonograph, and electric light. His secret? He defined genius as "1% inspiration and 99% perspiration." Failure or hardship never discouraged him. One time, when asked about 10,000 experiments that he failed, he said: "Why, I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work!" Discouragement is of the devil. He wants us destroyed, finished. GOD WANTS US TO WIN AND DO EXPLOITS FOR HIM!
