One of the greatest creative geniuses of the twentieth century was Thomas Edison, who spent years trying to generate electricity. Before he made his discovery, he was asked about all his "failures." He replied, "I have not failed. I have found thousands of ways that will not produce electric light. I am that much closer to discovering one that will."
What an attitude! It not only allowed him to keep on going so that he ultimately did discover how to generate electricity, but it kept him happy as he went about the process. Is there something going on in your life that could use this kind of reframing?
Think about this question and try to change your way of thinking. You can do it!
