"The line between failure and success is so fine that we scarcely know when we pass it - so fine that we often are on the line and do not know it." - Ralph Waldo EmersonA lot of ways to think about this statement. Have we already achieved success? Are we very, very close but we don't know it? Perhaps a tweak will push us over the top? Success and failure are simply what we choose to believe?
Consider what Thomas Edison said:
"Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up."
