Speaking from the experience of Thomas Edision the great inventor of the incandescent light bulb, who tried two thousands different materials in search of a filament for the light bulb. But when none worked satisfactorily, his assistant complained “All are work is in vain ” but what was Edison reply to his self-pitied partner? He said confidently “oh we have come a long way and have learned a lot. We know that there are two thousands filament that cannot be used to make a good light bulb.

Lets also consider the example of david meltzer the owner of who normally ask his workers every month, “who among you, made the worst mistake last month? Who among you did not give my customers the satisfaction they require? And any one who is honest enough to indicate himself, receives a $1000 from him.
