  • Thomas Alva Edison:

What would the world be like if Edison had given up trying on his dream to invent the light bulb?


He failed at it ten thousand times so it might be easy to understand if he just gave up. But no, Thomas needed to work tougher than a lot of us. Surely, throughout all college duration, he had issue learning in a traditional teaching technique and his teachers used to inform him that he was “too silly to study whatever”.

  • Oprah Winfrey:

One of the most respected and inspiring Black American woman in the whole world. She was sexually abused at the age of 9; Ran away from home at 13; got pregnant at 14; became beauty queen at 17; she totally abused drugs in her 20s; first black American woman on National T.V in America and to cap it all, a Millionaire at the age of 32.

  • Michael Jordan:

When he was a kid, Michael Jordan was seen as the ‘goofy’ kid who suddenly developed likeness for basketball. He was not very tall as at then and didn’t come from a sport family like the basketball star must-have in their factors.

But he got only one tool, determination! Michael met a lot of setbacks and failures and finally, his hard work eventually paid off.

In Michael Jordan’s first day in as he entered the league, his jump shot was evaluated then as “not good enough”. He spent most of his off season on practicing hundreds of jump shots every blessed day until they were perfect.

But, for every weakness, Michael Jordan managed to find a way to turn it into his strength. So, today we know him as the greatest basketball player of all time.


  • Colonel Sanders:

The creator of Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC).

You might not realize him obviously by his name, but I’m pretty sure you must be familiar with his face. It’s very safe to say that he is possibly one of the most recognizable commercial icons in the world.

But before all the fame and awareness he gets, Colonel was only a retiree who had nothing to count on except a fried chicken recipe, a restaurant that was about to broke and a long lasting dream.

The only thing that separate him from the other person was his unbelievable and attractive level of his determination. To make his dream come true in his 60s, Colonel Sanders tried many times to promote his fried chicken recipe by going around the country sleeping in his car and knocking on people’s door. He was rejected uncountable times until finally someone said yes! And that was the beginning of the million dollar empire KFC.


Can you see? The secret to success is not by luck or destiny, rather it’s as simple as hard work and perseverance in never giving up which can help you reach your highest dream and even change the world no matter what you’re doing now or where you have being coming.

It’s easy or even good to look at all the celebrities’ shots as they are on a very higher level then you…that they are just born to experience success, and that for you, success in anyway is nothing but a fairy tale.

But when you really take a look at how these people get to be where they are, you’ll notice that averagely most of them started with nothing at all just like you and I presently but a big dream and a heck of a strong will.
