It is reported that Thomas Edison endured 10,000 failed experiments while trying to invent the light bulb. When asked how it felt to have failed 10,000 time he replied, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”
I’ve always liked that story and it is a reminded of an important principle: You only have to be right one time.
One win, one tiny success, one good idea, one good relationship, can change everything.
Sometimes it’s enough to just get up and go one more day.
- The ONE THING for today: Whatever you do, don’t quit, don’t give up, don’t stop believing. All you need to do is get it right one time and everything will change.
Judges 16:28 (NLT)
Then Samson prayed to the LORD, “Sovereign LORD, remember me again. O God, please strengthen me just one more time.
