NEVER GIVE UP NO MATTER HOW HARD IT GETS. Every wrong attempt discarded, is another step forward.

At age 5 his father died.
At age 16 he quit school.
At age 17 he had already lost four jobs.
At age 18 he got married.
Between ages 18 and 22, he was a railroad conductor and failed.
He joined the army and washed out there.
He applied for law school, he was rejected.
He became an insurance sales man and failed again.
At age 19 he became a father.
At age 20 his wife left him and took their baby daughter.
He became a cook and dishwasher in a small cafe.
He failed in an attempt to kidnap his own daughter, and eventually he convinced his wife to return home.
At age 65 he retired.
On the 1st day of retirement he received a check from the Government for $105.
He felt that the Government was saying that he couldn’t provide for himself.
He decided to commit suicide, life wasn’t worth living anymore; he had failed so much.
He sat under a tree writing his will, but instead, he wrote what he would have accomplished with his life. He realized there was much more that he hadn’t yet done. There was one thing he could do better than anyone he knew. And that was how to cook.
So he borrowed $87 against his check and bought and fried up some chicken using his recipe, and went door to door to sell them to his neighbors in Kentucky.
Remember, at age 65 he was ready to commit suicide.
But at age 88 Colonel Sanders, founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) Empire was a billionaire.
Moral of the story: It’s never too late to start all over.
MOST IMPORTANLY, IT’S ALL ABOUT YOUR ATTITUDE. NEVER GIVE UP NO MATTER HOW HARD IT GETS.

You have what it takes to be successful. Go for it and make a difference.

Have you ever felt discouraged just because you failed, maybe once or twice?

Did your teacher called you stupid just because you can’t answer a simple math problem? Got fired from your job? Well, you’re not alone!

Sir Thomas Edison isn’t as intelligent as you thought he was. In fact, during his early days, even his teachers told him that he’s “too dumb to learn anything and there’s no hope for him.”

He even stopped his formal education at the age of 12. Not only that, he also failed more or less a thousand times with his inventions. Likewise, he even got fired from his first two jobs — after leaking acid on to his boss’ desk, but he didn’t give up and he didn’t let those failures drag him down.

Instead, he ignored those criticisms and despite being almost penniless, he turned out to be the most successful inventor of his generation. Having a great influence from motion picture cameras to creating the light bulb.

Come to think of it, if he did give up, you’ll probably be using candles up to now.

One of his famous quotes is, “Every wrong attempt discarded, is another step forward.”
