It Is Better To Fail In Originality Than To Succeed In Imitation

"Success is not done once but something done repeatedly”

Words of Pastor Mensah Otabil meaning, to be successful, one must display constant effort and an undying will to achieve greatness. Originality is the ability to invent or birth a new way of doing things. Being original is building from scratch, coming up with entirely new ways and procedures for the benefits of humanity. The ability to overcome the stumps that you encounter in the process of achieving your goal is what makes you successful because your first attempt may fail and if you give up at that instance, success will elude you.

“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time”, Thomas A. Edison.

At Indes Procom, we encourage our staffs to constantly push on and not relinquish or slumber when given tasks and always note that the greatest satisfaction is when the client is delighted before any other benefits. Simply put, failure is when you quit but success is constant trial. How would you feel if someone capitalized on your failure to achieve something great knowing you could have pulled it off if you had put in additional effort? I don’t know about you but I would regret for the rest of my life. There is nothing that has never really existed everything we see has existed before or gone through some form of transformation. Our ability to add on or subtract little details makes it unique replicating and existing brand or product.

“Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up”; Thomas A. Edison.

Some historians claim there were over 20 inventors of incandescent lamps prior to Edison’s version. However, Thomas Edison is credited with the invention of light not because he was the first to invent it but because his invention was able to outstrip earlier versions because he did something different from what others have done and did not give up. His invention had a combination three factors: an effective incandescent material, a higher vacuum than others were able to achieve and a high resistance that made power distribution from a centralized source economically viable. Edison made it his mission to perfect what others had failed at, now even though he is not alive, his name still lives on.
