His fiancé died. He suffered great loss in his business, lost 8 elections. Had he given up he wouldn’t have gone to become the 16th president of the United States of America. It was Sir Abraham Lincoln who went to the top despite of failures in his initial life.
He was cut out from his high school basketball team. Had he given up then he wouldn’t have gone on to become the world famous basketball player Michael Jordan.
People are so afraid of failures. It is sometimes this fear of failure that stops people to even take a chance. They compromise or give up just at the thought.
Mary Anne Radmacher says, “Courage doesn’t always roar, sometimes courage is the small voice at the end of the day that says, I will try again tomorrow.” Everybody faces rejection or failure in their life. But people who have tried in spite of it have gone on to become Inspirations.
There are so many such legends apart from Abraham Lincoln and Michael Jordan who have not given up when faced with such situations which can be narrated to reflect their amazing courage amidst failures. But it is important how we replicate them and their courageous acts in our life situations.
