A Winner is not only who never fails !!!! But never quits !!

Dear All,

Here are some examples,
Please Note that I have get them in Fwd. Massages.

Officials rejected a candidate for a news broadcasters post
Since his voice was not fit for a news broadcaster.
He was also told that with his obnoxiously long name,
He would never be famous. He is

Amitabh Bachchan.


In 1962, four nervous young musicians played their first record audition
For the executives of the Decca Recording Company.
The executives were not impressed. While turning down this group of musicians,
One executive said, " We don't like! Their sound. Groups of guitars are
On the way out."
The group was called

The Beatles.


In 1944, Emmeline Snively, director of the Blue Book Modeling Agency
Told modeling hopeful Norma Jean Baker,
" You'd better learn secretarial work or else get married".
She went on and became

Marilyn Monroe.


In 1954, Jimmy Denny, manager of the Grand Ole Opry,
Fired a singer after one performance. He told him,
" You ain't goin' nowhere son. You ought to go back to drivin' a truck".
He went on to become

Elvis Presley.

A small boy--the fifth amongst seven siblings of a poor father,
Was selling newspapers in a small village to earn his living.
He was not exceptionally smart at school but was fascinated by
Religion and rockets.

The first rocket he built crashed. A missile that he built crashed
Multiple times
And he was made a butt of ridicule.
He is the person to have scripted the Space Odyssey of India
Single-handedly. He is

Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam. President of India.


Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone in 1876,
It did not ring off the hook with calls from potential backers.
After making a demonstration call, President Rutherford Hayes said,
" That's an amazing invention, but who would ever want to see one of them?"


Thomas Edison invented the light bulb,

He tried over 2000 experiments before he got it to work.
A young reporter asked him how it felt to fail so many times.
He said, " I never failed once. I invented the light bulb.
It just happened to be a 2000-step process".


In the 1940s, another young inventor named
Chester Carlson
Took his idea to 20 corporations, including some of the biggest in
The country.

They all turned him down. In 1947, after 7 long years of rejections,
He finally got a tiny company in Rochester, NY, the Haloid Company,
To purchase the rights to his invention--an electrostatic
Paper-copying process.
Haloid became
Xerox Corporation.


A little girl--the 20th of 22 children,
Was born prematurely and her survival was doubtful. When she was 4 years old,
She contracted double pneumonia and scarlet fever,
Which left her with aparalyzed left leg.

At age 9, she removed the metal leg brace she had been dependent on
And began to
Walk without it. By 13 she had developed a rhythmic walk,
Which doctors said was a miracle. That same year she decided to become a runner.
She entered a race and came in last. For the next few years every
Race she entered,
She came in last.

Everyone told her to quit, but she kept on running. One day she
Actually won a race.
And then another. >From then on she won every race she entered.
Eventually this little girl--

Wilma Rudolph, went on to win three Olympic gold medals.


A schoolteacher scolded a boy for not paying attention to his mathematics
And for not being able to solve simple problems.
She told him that you would not become anybody in life.
The boy was

Albert Einstein

Read inspirational articles :
If I'm not mistaken you should use quotes.
I think that what you achieve or your performance does not make who you are. People that are such over achievers like the quotes you gave usually have low self esteem and therefore need to over achieve so that people may think something about them.
Moto of my post was "Not to listen what people say about you,Just go with your goal"

And I got this article in one fwd. massage.

I feel it worths reading of others so I posted It.
Actually they are few of thousands who have continuously tried.. and very few who have succeeded.

The main point is, i think, we should go on. You have heard Johny Walker Ad - 'keep walking'. Its simply the same thing. But in most of the cases we dont have enough hope and strenth to go on. So we just leave it off.

Sometimes, these real stories give some strength to try harder.. thats all.

Thanks for the post amol_turkhade.
Thank you, amol_turkhade! I really needed to read something like that tonight.
these are nice, especially the one with the light bulb
That's true. In my own life i experienced sometimes the "it is time to quit" time. I was learning how to play violin and believe me, it is a difficult instrument to learn. and many times i wanted to quit and say no more, but the need to go beyond what i had helped me to go on and i learned!

Don't give up! choose to win!
Good post friend.I gave it to my friend who is suffering frm polio.He got amazed and i saw some ray of hope on his face.Its great thing for some people but its not the thing always with everyone.

Wow... Can you imagine what the world would be like if we all had adequate self esteem and never reached for anything greater? So day I hope that my self esteem is so low that I can change the world!!!
Yep failure and success go hand in hand. Without mistakes we could never learn nor progress so i guess its fair to say that the people who are dedicated continue to gain from the experience even if its not the desired result.

Preservence is really important but i think the measure of winning is best measure on the inside. Out of everything there is something to be learned.
