If you’re big into self help and personal development, you’ve probably heard the story of Thomas Edison and his famous 1,000-10,000 failed experiments on the way to inventing the light bulb. Clearly, it takes guts and determination to stay relentless in the pursuit of ones vision.
You’ve probably also heard the following adage: the definition of insanity is to keep doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. The point usually being made is that you’ve reached a dead end and must change course. This also takes guts because one may need to abandon the vision altogether.
