Edison said, “Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to success is always to just try one more time.” The opportunities in life can be disguised as hard work. This will cause most people not to recognize them. Remember, work hard in silence and let your success be your noise. Thomas Edison also said, “If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves.”
