Energy and Success Your Way

I was reading the best advice I have had for a while this Sunday afternoon from Thomas Edison, the great inventor, from brain pickings.  First, I want to share the quote which was an excerpt from the interview by Orison Swett Marden with Thomas Edison:


‘You lay down rather severe rules for one who wishes to succeed in life,’ I ventured, ‘working eighteen hours a day.’

‘Not at all,’ he said. ‘You do something all day long, don’t you? Every one does. If you get up at seven o’clock and go to bed at eleven, you have put in sixteen good hours, and it is certain with most men, that they have been doing something all the time. They have been either walking, or reading, or writing, or thinking. The only trouble is that they do it about a great many things and I do it about one. If they took the time in question and applied it in one direction, to one object, they would succeed. Success is sure to follow such application. The trouble lies in the fact that people do not have an object, one thing, to which they stick, letting all else go. Success is the product of the severest kind of mental and physical application.’


I love the quote, and I do believe what he said is the key factor to success.  For me to find an image to accompany this quote, I was looking for images for concentration and focus.  However I landed into this artist’s amazing work which is energy painting – you have to check out the works of energy painter, Julia Watkins here.  They really energize and help me to focus on my task at hand!!
