A favorite song of mine has a lyric that says, “You ain’t gonna learn what you don’t wanna know”. Isn’t that the truth? Nothing is as essential to success as motivation. Case in point, check out this engineer who suffered from a congenital heart defect. He knew his heart would one day fail. So he struck out to find a better alternative to the existing, mechanical heart implants on the market. With his very life as the motivating factor, he engineered a solution that saved his own life and the lives of others who suffer from the same defect. What do you think you could achieve if failure was not an option?
