When something does not go as expected or planned; what do you see?
FEEDBACK OR FAILURE?
When asked about his search for a successful lightbulb filament: “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” ― Thomas A. Edison
“Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.” ― Thomas A. Edison
“Five percent of the people think; ten percent of the people think they think; and the other eighty-five percent would rather die than think.” ― Thomas A. Edison
“We often miss opportunity because it’s dressed in overalls and looks like work” ― Thomas A. Edison
“Genius is one percent inspiration, ninety-nine percent perspiration.” ― Thomas A. Edison
“When you have exhausted all possibilities, remember this – you haven’t.” ― Thomas A. Edison
“Just because something doesn’t do what you planned it to do doesn’t mean it’s useless.” ― Thomas A. Edison
Nobody ever fails at anything. It is just a perfectionist label the ego uses to hide the truth “I cannot fail.”
The ego loves to keep you in a state of confusion and disarray. It does its best work when it can get you out of the mental state of attention to awareness.
Everything you have ever done has been a success. If the answers the universe gives you do not meet your expectations or plans; that does not mean the answer is wrong. Your perception that the answer is wrong is the problem.
The universe always gives you feedback; if only you give attention to awareness you can hear or see it.
