ZRD's philosophy is in complete agreement with Thomas Edison's inspirational quote.

When Thomas Edison was asked how he felt about repeatedly failing to design a working light bulb, he replied, "I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work". Thomas Alva Edison was an early pioneer of electricity and worked tirelessly to develop the electric filament light bulb. He never let the failure of a certain design let him down and he carefully learned from his designs. His attitude toward failure is the way one should consider living their life - everyone is going to make mistakes and not get things right the first time. The way we handle this defines us. We all have plenty of experiences in our lives that could be considered failures, but I prefer to view them as learning experiences. Every time we make a mistake, we should learn from it and become a stronger, better-informed person. The person we are today is the culmination of the successes and failures that have befallen us throughout life. If we remove those failures, we would have nothing against which to measure our successes and nothing to have learned from.
