Nate’s Monday Morning Message
Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message! I love this quote, and when I read it I can’t help but think what the world might be like, had Thomas Edison given up. I can imagine the opposition he met in those times, and was probably told he was crazy more than once. But he kept on, and is considered to be one of the most prolific inventors of all time.
What brilliant idea are you sitting with in secret, afraid to try or share for fear of failure, rejection or judgement? What if the answer to what you seek is waiting for you to get up, dust yourself off and try just one more time? It doesn’t take guts to quit. Let’s make it a great week!
Moral of the Story…
People have been coming to the wise man, every time complaining about the same problems. One day he told them a joke and everyone roared in laughter.
After a couple of minutes, he told them the same joke and only a few of them smiled.
When he told the same joke for the third time no one laughed anymore.
The wise man smiled and said:
“You can’t laugh at the same joke over and over. So why are you always crying about the same problem?”
