In order to succeed in business or life, I realized that we must constantly take corrective action. Putting yourself on the line day after day can be extremely exhausting, especially when things do not work as I wanted. Therefore, every time I face a disappointing event or unwanted result, I NEVER FORGET these famous failures:
1. Bill Gates founder and chair of Microsoft, has literally changed the working culture of the world in the 21st century by simplifying the way the computer is used. He is the richest man in the world over the last decade. However, in the 1970s, before he started, he had dropped out of Harvard University. The most ironic part is that he created a software company (which would soon become Microsoft) by acquiring software technology from "someone" for only $ US50 ever since
2. Abraham Lincoln has not received more than 5 years of formal education throughout his life. When he grew up, he joined the politics and had 12 major failures before being elected the 16th President of the United States of America
3. Isaac Newton is the greatest English mathematician of his generation. His work on optics and gravity makes him one of the greatest scientists the world has ever known. Many thought Isaac was a born genius, but he was not! When he was young, he did very badly at elementary school, so poor that his teachers failed to improve his grades
4. Ludwig van Beethoven A German composer of classical music is widely regarded as one of the highest composers of history. His reputation inspired – and in many cases frightened – composers, musicians and audiences who had to come after him. Prior to starting his career, Beethoven's music teacher once said about him "as a composer, he is hopeless." And during his career, he loses his hearing but nevertheless manages to produce great music – a dumb man who composes music is not ironic!
5. Thomas Edison who developed many devices that significantly influenced life in the 20th century. Edison is considered one of the most prolific inventors in history, holding 1,093 US patents in his name. When he was a boy, the teacher told him he was too stupid to learn something. When he left alone, he tried more than 9,000 experiments before creating the first successful bulb.
6. Woolworth is a retailer that is one of the original five and ten cents stores. The first Woolworth store was founded in 1878 by Frank Winfield Woolworth and soon became one of the largest retail chains in the world in the 20th century. Prior to starting his own business, Wawlorth received a job at a dry goods store when he was 21 years old. But his employer would not allow him to serve a client because he concluded that Frank "did not have enough common sense to serve his clients"
7. Through acclamation Michael Jordan is the greatest basketball player of all times. A phenomenal athlete with a unique combination of grace, speed, power, artistic, improvisation and unwavering competitive desire. Jordan convincingly redefined the superstar of the NBA. Before joining the NBA, Jordan was just an ordinary person so casual that he was cut off by the basketball team of the high school because of the "lack of skills"
8. Walter Disney is an American film producer, director, screenwriter, voice actor and animator. One of the most famous film producers in the world, Disney founded a production company. The corporation, known as The Walt Disney, earns an average of $ 30 billion a year. Disney started his own business from his home garage, and his first feature of animated films went bankrupt. During his first press conference, a newspaper editor mocked Walt Disney because he had no good ideas in film production
9. Winston Churchill failed 6th grade. But this never stops him from working harder! He fought and eventually became the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom during the Second World War. Churchill is usually considered one of the most important leaders in the UK and world history. In an inquiry conducted by the BBC in 2002 to identify the "100 Greatest Britons", participants voted Churchill as the most important of all
10. Steven Spielberg is an American film director. He has won 3 Academy Awards and is one of the most successful directors in history. Mostly Steven was recognized as the most successful financial director of all time. During his childhood, Spielberg dropped out of high school. He was convinced to return and was placed in a disability class. He lasted only a month and then left school forever.
11. Albert Einstein is a theoretical physicist, considered to be the most important scientist of the 20th century. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1921 for his explanation of the photoelectric effect in 1905 and his "Theoretical Physics Services". However, when Einstein was young, his parents thought he was mentally abandoned. His grades at school were so poor that a teacher asked him to leave, saying, "Einstein, you will never feel anything like that!"
12. In 1947, a year in her contract, Marilyn Monroe dropped out of the 20th Century-Fox, because her producer felt it was unattractive and unable to act. That does not stop it! It continued to last and eventually it was recognized by the audience as the most famous star of the 20th century, sex symbol and pop icon
13. John Grisham's first novel was rejected by sixteen agents and twelve publishing houses. He continues writing and writing until he becomes best known as a novelist and author of his works of contemporary legal drama. The media turned him into one of the best authors, even alive in the 21st century.
14. Henry Ford's first two car companies failed. It does not stop Ford Motor Company from being the first manufacturer of world-class production lines for affordable cars. It has not only revolutionized industrial production in the United States and Europe, but has also had such an impact on the economy and society of the 20th century. Its combination of mass production, high wages and low prices for consumers has initiated a management school known as "Fordism". During this time he became one of the three most famous and richest people in the world.
15. Soichiro Honda was rejected by Toyota Motor Corporation during a post-World War II engagement engine interview. He continues to be unemployed until his neighbors start buying their "home scooters". He then set out to start his own company. Honda. Today, the company is growing to become the world's largest motorcycle manufacturer and one of the most profitable car manufacturers – defeating giant manufacturers like GM and Chrysler. With a global network of 437 subsidiaries, Honda develops, manufactures and markets a wide variety of products, ranging from small generic engines and scooters to special sports cars.
16. Akio Morita Founder of giant electric household products, Sony Corporation, the first product is an electric cooker for rice, selling only 100 cooker (because it burns rice instead of cooking). Today, Sony is generating $ 66 billion of revenue and is ranked the world's sixth largest electronic and electrical company.
