Opportunities. Create them, take them!

Opportunity is missed by most people, because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

Thomas Edison

Some people might think that opportunities just suprise you with an offer like “Hey, just come here and say yes and I’ll make you rich and successfull!”.

Guess what? That’s bullshit. Most of the time you don’t even realise how many opportunities you have got. Every single piece of work you get done is an opportunity for bigger things.

Keep that in mind. Opportunities are nothing to be awaited like your dream just knocking on your door. You have to actively pursue your dreams so that in the future you can look back on all the opportunities you have created and taken.

Edison about inventing things

I find out what the world needs. Then, I go ahead and invent it.

Try one more time!

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.

Never give up!

Awww, I love Edison!

Many of life’s failures are people who did not realise how close they were to success when they gave up.

Thomas Edison

Don’t ever give up! You never know, maybe you were just one more day away from the big success! Don’t be discouraged for you have no reason!

What I think about rules

Good Day 🙂

Hell!  There ain’t no rules around here!  We’re trying to accomplish somep’n.

Thomas Alva Edison

I really like this one because of its profound message. When you want to accomplish something you try to do so and give your best. Your are determinend and don’t waste your time with guidelines and stuff like that. You want to create something new, how can you work along with existing rules? Edison was right not to believe in the rules and limiting beliefs the peoeple had at his time and invented the fucking light bulb, so take him as an example for the truth of this lesson 🙂
