I sitting down and thinking today, and this came to mind about why would you want to reinvent the Light Bulb, so I thought that I would share it with you.
Because sometimes in business along with in life in general we come across challenges so although Smart Laptop Lifestyle is focused on online business. Life happens so this article kinda works for both business and personal life.
After all we are all attempting to build a laptop lifestyle so that we can have more enjoyment in our personal lives.
Anyway enough of this, let’s continue.
Now here’s a thing, have you ever had a problem with a burned out light?
Thanks to the amazing efforts of Thomas Edison we no longer need to invent the light bulb. We can just go to the cupboard or if we have no spares, we can go to the store and purchase. We can just change the burned out light bulb for a new one and hey presto we have light.
You may have heard the story of the how long it took Thomas Edison to actually invent the light bulb and the efforts it took him to get it right.
Also how many failed attempts he had before it got it right.
I read somewhere that someone asked him one day if he ever got discouraged by all his failed attempts and his answered that he never failed and that he discovered one more way how not to make a light bulb.
Isn’t that amazing?
I always tell my clients that through their lives they did not fail but received feedback on how not to do it.
I think I got that from good old Thomas Edison.
Because, you see there is no such thing as failure, there are only results.
This reminds me of another saying I heard from somewhere. Isn’t it funny how you always remember the lesson but not the teacher? Lol
Anyway back to what I was saying…
Someone once said that the definition of Insanity is to do something over and over again and get the same results.
Here’s the tough truth you probably already know.
If you want different results you need to do something different.
Make a definitive decision right now to get different results
In order for our lives to work properly we need to make some changes to the things we are doing.
Just like a light can burn out, so can we.
Life can become a very dark and depressing place and we feel that there is no light, not hope in sight. This is a very bleak picture.
You may have heard the saying “no light at the end of the tunnel”.
Right let me start to shine some light on this situation. (lol). When we are feeling so low and deep down into a pit, this is when we really need to have some light so that we can see our way through.
Some of us are fortunate enough to have some source of light on hand, whilst others will have to go out and regain some.
Many people unfortunately will try and invent themselves some light by thinking positive thoughts but this can only take them so far, because this will on give so much light.
There is more light available but many people are in a dilemma of to actually obtain it.
We don’t have to be like Thomas Edison and keep looking at the problem over and over thinking of ways to solve it.
For every problem there is a Solution.
How Do We Find The Solution?
How do we find the Solution? Well we can try, as I mentioned earlier to figure it out by ourselves, or we can find someone who has already overcome this obstacle and do what they did.
There are many books on the market today that can help us to understand how to overcome many obstacles in our lives.
We need to read and learn from the failures, obstacles, trials and errors of other people.
They have been through it all before and can help to teach us how to go through it now.
There are many people out there, great thinkers in our history and we are so very fortunate to be able to follow their trail.
We all need to have more light in our lives. Sometimes we just can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel but we need to remember that there is always hope and help around us.
Learn how others have overcome their challenges in life and keep what you have learned inside you, as a resource, so that when you are feel low and life starts to look dim, you can reach for those resources and help yourself see the light in your life again.
Remember don’t try to reinvent the light bulb, instead learn how to carry the light within YOU.
