Failure leads to success and makes people and nations stronger through time. First, Michael Jordan failed many times throughout his life and he became the greatest basketball player ever. Secondly, Abraham Lincoln was born into poverty, failed two businesses, and still became president. Third, Albert Einstein failed many times and became a brilliant scientist. History shows failure turns into brilliance
Michael Jordan was given second shrift by his high school basketball team because the coach told him he wasn’t tall enough to play. It was a moment deeply imprinted on Michael’s life. He stared at the alphabetically arranged list of names that made the team, feeling sure his coach had mistakenly left his name out. He was so disappointed and ashamed, he wept when he got home that day. Fortunately, his mother came to his side and gave him some important advice. “She said that the best thing I could do is to prove to the coach that he had made a mistake,” recalled Michael, who added, “leaving my disappointment behind, I started to improve my performance.” As we know, he would quickly go on to become the most recognizable athlete in history because he refused to give up and treated his failure as an opportunity and a challenge.
Born into poverty, Lincoln had to face defeat throughout his life. He lost eight elections, failed in two businesses, and suffered a nervous breakdown which left him bedridden for six months. He could have quit many times, but he didn’t, and instead became one of the greatest American presidents. Rather than stop trying he kept pursuing his goals. Finally, in 1860 Lincoln was elected President. And the rest, as they say, is history.
Einstein is means intelligence and genius. Yet it’s a fact that the pioneer of the theory of general relativity, Albert Einstein himself, could not speak fluently until the age of nine. His rebellious nature led to expulsion from school, and he was refused admittance to the Zurich Polytechnic School. His earlier setbacks did not stop him from winning the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1921. To this day, his research has influenced various aspects of life including culture, religion, art, and even late night TV.
Failure can only make you stronger if you don’t give up. Michael Jordan failed his whole life and he became the greatest basketball player ever. Abraham Lincoln was born poor and still became president. Albert Einstein couldn’t speak fluently till he was nine and ended up being famous. If you always do your best you will succeed no matter how many times you fail
