#inspiration: Famous Failures

Inspiring video on persevering no matter how many times you have failed in life. This video mentions well known people who had failed, but kept pressing on until they became successful. Those People are: Michael Jordan After being cut from his high school basketball team, he went home locked himself in his room and cried. Albert Einstein He wasn’t able to speak until he was almost 4 years old and his teachers said he would “never amount to much” Oprah Winfrey Was demoted from her job as a news anchor because she… “Wasn’t fit for television.” Walt Disney Fired from a newspaper for “lacking imagination” and “having no original ideas”… Lionel Messi At age 11 he was cut from his team after being diagnosed with a growth hormone deficiency… which made him smaller in stature than most kids his age. Steve Jobs At 30 years old he was left devastated and depressed after being unceremoniously removed from the company he started. Eminem A High School dropout, whose personal struggles with drugs and poverty culminated in an unsuccessful suicide attempt… Thomas Edison A teacher told him he was… “Too stupid to learn anything” and that he should go into a field where he might succeed by virtue of his pleasant personality. The Beatles Rejected by Decca Recording studios, who said “we don’t like their sound”… “They have no future in show business” Dr. Zeuss His First Book Was Rejected By 27 Publishers. Abraham Lincoln His Fiancé Died, Failed In Business, Had A Nervous Breakdown And Was Defeated In 8 Elections. Ending Quote “If you’ve Never Failed, You’ve Never Tried Anything New”
