“I haven’t failed, I have had great success, finding 9,999 ways that do not work”–Thomas Edison

 
Legend has it that Thomas Edison tried and failed 9,999 times to create the light bulb. What if he would have stopped before his 10,000th attempt?

Never quit.

 

 

“Amber”

Brainstorm
take me away from the norm
I got to tell you something
this phenomenon
I had to put it in a song
and it goes like

Whoa, amber is the color of your energy
whoa, shades of gold displayed naturally
you ought to know what brings me here
you glide through my head blind to fear
and I know why
whoa, amber is the color of your energy
whoa, shades of gold displayed naturally

Whoa, amber is the color of your energy
whoa, shades of gold displayed naturally

You live too far away
your voice rings like a bell anyway
don’t give up your independence
unless it feels so right
nothing good comes easily
sometimes you gotta fight

Whoa, amber is the color of your energy
whoa, shades of gold displayed naturally
launched a thousand ships in my heart, so easy
still it’s fine from afar, and you know that
whoa, brainstorm take me away from the norm
whoa, I got to tell you something

Would?

Know me broken by my master
Teach thee on child of love hereafter

Into the flood again
Same old trip it was back then
So I made a big mistake
Try to see it once my way

Drifting body it’s sole desertion
Flying not yet quite the notion

Into the flood again
Same old trip it was back then
So I made a big mistake
Try to see it once my way

Into the flood again
Same old trip it was back then
So I made a big mistake
Try to see it once my way

Am I wrong?
Have I run too far to get home?
Have I gone?

And left you here alone?
If I would, could you?

-Alice In Chains

 

Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan,  in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act.  There is no other route to success.

97837-Never+give+up+failure+quote

Sometimes in life we try to reach a goal and things don’t go as we hoped and planned. It happens because life is a gamble. Life isn’t fair and there are no guarantees. There is a always a 50/50 chance of either success or failure.

I have seen people crushed by their failures, never to try at it again. They basically gave up on their dream and any hopes related to that dream. But than I’ve seen others where failing lit a fire inside of them and they became better than they were because of it. The legendary boxer Larry Holmes is a great example of this.

Legend has it that when Larry Holmes was an amateur trying out for the Olympics, he was so afraid of his opponent Duane Bobick, that he got disqualified in their match for excessive holding. It was rumored that he also crawled out of the ring in fear like a dog with his tail between his legs. He was branded as a “coward” by the boxing community after that.  This devastating failure could have crushed Larry and he could have quit right then and there on his hopes of becoming a pro boxer and champion like so many would have. But Larry was something different.

The reputation as a coward lit a fire under his ass and he started training like a madman possessed. The pain and humiliation was something he never wanted to ever feel again.

Now we all know what happened to Larry Holmes. He went on to become one of the greatest Heavyweight champions of all time, beating Ali and having the 3rd longest title reign of 7 years in Heavyweight boxing history. So failure is what he needed. Meanwhile, who is Duane Bobick?

So although life is a 50/50 gamble, it’s worth it to take your chance at it. It’s better than the alternative. Failure doesn’t have to stop you in your tracks.  Life isn’t over because of a temporary setback. Get up and dust yourself off.

So are you going to be the kind of person who let’s failure crush you? Or are you going to let failure wake up the sleeping giant inside of you? Your choice.

“You’ve Seen The Butcher”

Don’t wanna take it slow
I wanna take you home
And watch the world explode
From underneath your glow

Yea I wanna watch the way…
You creep across my skull…

You slowly enter
Cause you know my room
And then crawl your knees off
Before you shake my tomb

I wanna watch you close
I need to see for sure
And then the tape is on
Who do you think we can show?

I wanna watch the way…
You creep across my skull…

You slowly enter
Cause you know my room
And then crawl your knees off
Before you shake my tomb

You slowly enter
Cause you know my room
And then crawl your knees off
Before you shake my tomb

You enter slowly
You know my room
You crawl your knees off
And then you shake my tomb
I wanna watch the way…
You creep across my skull…

You slowly enter
Because you know my room
And then crawl your knees off
Before you shake my tomb

You enter slowly,
You know my room,
You crawl your knees off
And then u shake my tomb…
