Don't Quit!

On this day in 1880, October 1st, Thomas Edison opened up the first electric light shop. He held over 1000 patents and invented many things including the phonograph. He built his own science laboratory at the age of 10. He is known to have said,‘Genius is one percent inspiration, 99 percent perspiration’.
Though he started out selling vegetables and delivering papers, though he was partially deaf, he achieved so many thing that we benefit from today. The secret to his success was that he never quit. Whenever he failed at an experiment he just chalked it up as another way it wouldn't work and moved ahead.
Today, people quit too easily. When things get hard we look for an easier way. When it takes too long, our lack of patience causes us to give up. We know that life is challenging. We know there will be difficulties. But with God on our side, well, who can be against us? With Him ALL things are possible. He IS the way, the truth and the life. If you stick it out, if you keep moving forward, you will walk out of the defeat and into victory.
It's time to stop with the excuses. Ask God to give you the strength and show you the way. He makes a way where there does not seem to be one and He promised He would never abandon you. There may be an invention inside of you! Imagine that, right now you may have an idea that could one day change the way people live! Exciting isn't it? Don't quit!
