Some Of The Greatest People In World History Failed Before They Succeeded


March 30, 2017

There are many men and women in world history who experienced failure before success. It didn’t make them any less accomplished nor did it speak to a lack of intelligence. It just meant they had to be disciplined, tenacious, work hard and not give up in the face of adversity.

American politician, Abraham Lincoln, had business and political failures before becoming President of the United States. He experienced many setbacks and failures, but persevered, eventually won the presidency and made a difference in history.

German scientist, Albert Einstein, a name now associated with intelligence, was thought to be stupid when he was a young boy in school. He was mischievous and did not show the traits of a future genius. Some scientific mysteries baffled him and others it took time for him to decipher. However, with time his intellect developed and he is now embedded in world history as a genius.

Famous American inventor Thomas Edison stated, “I have not failed 10,000 times—I’ve successfully found 10,000 ways that will not work.” Edison had many setbacks in his career, before he went on to success.

African American scientist, George Washington Carver, had setbacks he persevered through and went on to success. Carver is now in world history as a legendary inventor, but it took a tremendous amount of hard work, drive, imagination and sticktoitiveness to produce groundbreaking inventions.

There are no shortcuts to true success. One has to work hard and be diligent. You have to put in the hours of labor and dedication. You have to be determined and of a strong resolve to make success your own. Therefore, go for it!

Having A Hopeful Outlook On The Future

November 30, 2016


Having a hopeful outlook on the future is essential, especially during times of crisis. It can sustain you through tough times and encourage you to reach that next level during good times. Success in your personal and professional life can go a long way towards your happiness. No one is promised tomorrow and one should not be presumptuous, but thank God for life everyday and hope for a better tomorrow.

Being optimistic about the present and the future is always better than being a pessimist. Stress and depression are not good for the mind and body. Let go of the stress. People need to learn to laugh more. Fearing the worst, which often does not happen, is not good for your health and will rob you of the joy of life. Therefore, enjoy your life and live with hope.

People define success in different ways. What is important to one person is not to another. Some see being rich as success. However, if the money was stolen or acquired by false means, it is not really success now is it. Those who work hard and earn their money honestly are a success.

To some success is doing charity work. Some seek to travel their nation or the world and help the poor. Some help the less fortunate by building houses, planting agriculture and digging wells in impoverished areas. I’ve often admired missionaries who travel the world bring hope, faith, food, clothes and medicine to the poor.

It is an admirable and wonderful goal. To know you’ve changed lives for the better is the definition of success. It is also a great feeling. It’s one of the best things you can do in life.

Whatever you do in life, do it with integrity and character. Do things the right way. Build your career or business on a solid, honest foundation. And how ever you define success, make sure it truly meets the criteria in the purest form of the word. God bless.
