Q4 Daily Inspiration – Thomas Edison – Fail Forward


View this email in your browser


Character Quake:
    In order for me to make today different from all my past days, I must stretch.  To expand my possibilities, I need to change my thinking.  As I help others with breakthroughs, I realize that we all need to improve winning our own mental game.  
    I understand that breaking my own barriers is supposed to be hard.  Much to my dismay, my first attempts aren’t going to work.  I have to stop looking for an easy way out, doing the same things I’ve always done before.  I have to head right into the headlights of my inspiration.  Instead of hoping angels will do the work for me, I have to find angles to pivot around and bulldoze to where I need to be.  
    Yet it remains uncomfortable and stressful to change my formula, my routine, my plan.  I know that discomfort and angst is necessary.  This is how I get to a different place that I could not otherwise reach because I am limited by what I know, by what feels comfortable or easy.  
    I must trust that my problems will lead me to something greater.  I will think from a space of abundance and possibility rather than fear and defeat.  I will continue to step forward into the hardest space for me.  That place where I have no idea where I’m heading.  I hope you will do the same.            

Provocative Quote:  
I have not failed.  I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.


Thomas Edison
