If at First

Thomas Edison was told he was too stupid to learn anything. It was suggested he move into a field where his pleasant demeanor would allow him a meager success.

Micheal Jordan was cut from his high school basketball team.

Isaac Newton did poorly in grade school and wasn’t considered someone that success was destined for.

Einstein was a poor student and was a child that never uttered a word until he was four years of age. Some even felt he was mentally challenged.

Beethoven’s music teacher told him, “As a composer, he is hopeless.”

Winston Churchill has to repeat grade 6 because he failed to complete all the necessary tests for promotion.

Walt Disney was fired by a newspaper editor because he “lacked imagination and had no good ideas.”

How many times have you been told that you aren’t what we are looking for, that you don’t have it together and or that you just are a failure?

You will make mistakes, you will hit road blocks but it is only when you begin blaming someone else and stop believing that “they” become right about you.

To succeed you must believe in yourself, work hard, never give up, meet someone that sees greatness within you, expects that greatness from you and lets you know that is what they want.

It is a true key for success.

If at first you don’t succeed, then try, try again.
