***Inspiring examples of famous people who failed, many times in some cases, but kept trying until they succeeded.
R. H. Macy:
Most people are familiar with this large department store chain, but
Macy didn't always have it easy. Macy started seven failed business
before finally hitting big with his store in New York City.
Harland David Sanders:
Perhaps better known as Colonel Sanders of Kentucky Fried Chicken fame,
Sanders had a hard time selling his chicken at first. In fact, his
famous secret chicken recipe was rejected 1,009 times before a
restaurant accepted it.
Isaac Newton: Newton
was undoubtedly a genius when it came to math, but he had some failings
early on. He never did particularly well in school and when put in
charge of running the family farm, he failed miserably, so poorly in
fact that an uncle took charge and sent him off to Cambridge where he
finally blossomed into the scholar we know today.
Orville and Wilbur Wright:
These brothers battled depression and family illness before starting
the bicycle shop that would lead them to experimenting with flight.
After numerous attempts at creating flying machines, several years of
hard work, and tons of failed prototypes, the brothers finally created a
plane that could get airborne and stay there.
This Nobel Prize-winning, twice-elected Prime Minster of the United
Kingdom wasn't always as well regarded as he is today. Churchill
struggled in school and failed the sixth grade. After school he faced
many years of political failures, as he was defeated in every election
for public office until he finally became the Prime Minister at the ripe
old age of 62.
