Thomas Edison

Achievers have an ingrained philosophy of “It can be done“, while the rest of the population tend to believe the opposite, focusing on fear rather than faith.

Thomas Edison, for example, conducted 10000 separate experiments before he invented the incandescent light bulb. It is often when you try one more time that success comes, whereas a negative mental attitude leads you to give up just before the darkness turn to light.

The way we explain things to ourselves is perhaps the most important factor in weather or not we will be a success in something, because while everyone has setbacks, a much smaller set of people are able to accept them quickly and move on, knowing that things must soon change for the better, as they inevitably do.
