Thomas Edison Was Afraid of The Dark!

Our Light Bearer-Edison, was afraid of dark?

Yupe, you heard me. Edison was darn afraid of the dark. That's why he overcame his fear in a big way and invented the light bulb that NOW illuminate our nights! Thanks to his fear, now we enjoy nights with light!

The door of opportunity swings on the hinges of adversity. Problems are the price of progress. Bear this mind, the obstacles in our life are intended to make us stronger and better, not bitter. Adversity has advantages!

Obstacles are merely a call to strengthen us not for us to falter! Ann Gimenez once said, "Between you and anything significant will be giants in your path." You cannot bring about changes without change without confrontation. Simply put, if you like things easy, you will have difficulties; likewise if you love problems, you will succeed. Learn the attitude of Louisa May Alcott: "I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my ship."

Never ever let your problems and doubts take the lead-you take it! The adversities you face is simply an opportunity for you to do you best. The Chinese have a maxim that says, "The gem cannot be polished without a friction, nor man perfected without trials." Obviously hardship is the ingredients for greatness!

The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands
in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he
stands at time of challenge and controversy.
~Martin Luther King Jr.~

Life is as uncertain as a grapefruit's squirt! No one would have crossed the ocean if he could have gotten off the ship in the storm. The breakfast of champions is not cereal; it's obstacles! What's yours?

Learn from Chicken Little! He's a small guy,
But he has a BIG heart!
