One Secret of Success
By Catherine Pulsifer

In studying successful people, you will find that many of them had an abundance of ideas that did not work. Yet, they kept going and didn’t get discouraged by unsuccessful attempts. After many attempts, in some cases, they found one idea that did work, and that one idea led them to their ultimate success.

To quote Charles F. Kettering,
"Don’t be afraid to stumble. Any inventor will tell you that you don’t follow a plan far before you strike a snag.
If, out of 100 ideas you get one that works, it’s enough."

Finding that one idea requires an intense desire. Intense desire also empowers you to discover hidden talents.

Successful people are not afraid to confront failure when their first idea fails. They do not quit because they know to do so would forever rob them of discovering that one idea that could work. Elbert Hubbard once said, "There is no failure except in no longer trying."

One of the secrets of success: do not be discouraged by failure.

                                                  THE REQUISITS OF GENIOUS.
     
     An eye that can see nature, a heart that can feel nature and a boldness that can follow it.
     
                                                   For me failure is not a option.
                                                                                                     All the best to you and yours. Kenny.
