Many people believe that failure is not succeeding while or after doing something: this is a very spread and strong belief. But maybe is not really the ultimate truth …
Think about how many times Thomas Edison failed at inventing the light bulb … But did he really failed? The 1000 unsuccessful attempts at inventing the light bulb were necessary to get to it. The journey is absolutely necessary to get to any destination. When a reporter asked him “How did it feel to fail 1000 times?” Edison replied, “I did not fail 1000 times. The light bulb was an invention with 1000 steps”.
Never let your fears of failure hold you back. Because that is failure: not expressing who you are and what you want to contribute in this life. Be bold and regardless the thousands voices you here around you or just in your head, go ahead, shine your Light and be the great person you know you can be.
This is not only the biggest gift you could do to yourself, but also to others, as in doing so, you inspire them to do the same.
To your boldness,
Elena and Lorenzo Sbrinci
