You decided that you’re not destined for a first class result after a couple of F’s or even D’s, or you thought since you’ve tried for admission 3 times, it’s high time you dropped the dream of studying in a university.
You made up your mind to step down from running for that post you’ve coveted all your life all because of a few setbacks you encountered along the way, or you’re someone who after so many job interviews and still has no job decides maybe no white collar job is made for you.
You all say its to late to make it,but is it too late to try.
Walt Disney, the man who gave us Disney World and Mickey Mouse. His first animation company went banktrupt. He was fired by a news editor cause he lacked imagination. Legend has it he was turned down 302 times before he got financing for creating Disney World. We all know Albert Eistein who didn’t speak till he was four and didn’t read till seven. His parents and teachers thought he was mentally handicapped. He only turned out to win a Nobel prize and be the face of modern physics. Have you heard of Steven Spielberg, he applied and was denied two times to the prestigious University of Southern California film school. Instead he went to Cal State University in Long Beach. He went on to direct some of the biggest movie blockbusters in history. Now he’s worth $2.7 billion and in 1994 got an honorary degree from the film school that rejected him twice.
You think these great men would have been able to achieve this great feats if they had stopped trying or giving up on their dreams,rather they saw themselves as conquerors and each trial as only a step that gets them closer to the desired result or goal.
Sometimes we give so much and have little to show for it and we think life doesn’t favour us. Yes,life doesn’t favour anyone,it only teaches each and every one of us lessons that are quite important for our journey through the its ups and downs.
However, hardwork alone does not guarantee success,but our ability to persevere through all odds does.
Never let anyone make you feel less of yourself.
You’re destined for greatness,if you believe you are. Success doesn’t just knock on our doors while we are asleep neither does it creep into your room like a thief in the night, you work for it,you look for it tirelessly and when you find it,you’ll be glad you did.
There’s are no extraordinary people only ordinary people doing extraordinary things.
Remember, it is never too late to try.
