Winners Never Quit - And Quitters Never Win!

Thought it would be a good idea to write an article about some major failures, so you can see what happens to a man or woman that keeps on failing in what they try to achieve in life.

First case of major failure

One man experienced a lot of failures in the beginning of his career during a period of almost 30 years.
Here's the short version of the list of his failures:

1. Nervous breakdown
2. Was defeated when running for Speaker of the United States House of Representatives.
3. Lost re-nomination to congress.
4. Was rejected Land officer.
5. Defeated when running for Senate.
6. Lost nomination for vice-president.
7. Lost senate again.

Then 1860 he was elected president and is today considered one of Americas Greatest Presidents.
His name is Abraham Lincoln. What a failure huh?

Lincoln experienced many failures, but he was never a failure because he never gave up.

You can't fail unless you give up - to ensure success you just never give up. "Winners never quit, and quitters never win!"

A few other examples of "failures" include Walt Disney who went broke numerous times and had a nervous breakdown. Enrico Caruso failed so many times in singing class that the teacher continuously tried to make him give up his dream of becoming the worlds best tenor. He didn't give up.

Henry Ford
went broke, then became the richest man in the world. Albert Einstein failed courses in math, so did Werner Von Braun.

Thomas Edison failed over 6000 times before he invented the light bulb. Jesse Livermore, the worlds greatest stock trader of all time, went broke time after time and made back the millions after each failure.

No matter how many times you fail, you are never a failure as long as you dont give up! You just need to get up just one more time than you fall down in order to be successful.

Failure is an event, not a person.
