Thomas Edison - Opportunity Dressed in Overalls
Show Notes

Today's episode is the first of a few episodes in which I will be talking about quotes that I took from my gift book for graduating athletes called, "Inspiration for the Graduate." As it is graduation season right now, I thought it would be appropriate to highlight some of the quotes in that book. I wrote the book, so I could give it to my graduating seniors. I soon had other coaches asking me how they could get it, so I published it, and it has been my bestselling book by far.

I am running a special on "Inspiration of the Graduate" for the month of May. Usually, it retails for $7.95, and the 10-pack is $70.00. However, right now, you can get individual copies of it for just $6.95 and the 10-pack for $65.00. Go to the Shop page of the SlamDunk Success site to order it.

In today's episode, I talk about a quote that I can't believe I have not talked about at some point during the first 112 episodes of the podcast because this has long been one of my favorite quotes. I love this quote because of the imagery that Thomas Edison uses to help us understand his point about hard work. And then if you know the story of Thomas Edison's quest to create the light bulb, you see the power of the message that his imagery is conveying.
