Many Of Life’s Failures Are People Who Did Not Realize How Close They Were to Success When They Gave Up – Thomas A. Edison

Updated on January 3rd, 2022

“Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.”

– Thomas A. Edison
Part of the art of success is knowing when to quit and when to keep going. People who quit because they have compromised their vision after assessing the pushback of reality may be justified in their decision. However, people who quit because their endeavour has simply become too hard will never know just how close to success they were, and there is no greater failure than that. There’s nothing worse than the regret that you could have kept going but chose not to; there’s no greater success than knowing that you pushed through and challenged yourself and earned your victory.
