1.Soichiro Honda: Soichiro Honda is the founder of the company Honda which is one of the well known large automotive companies. Honda’s story starts when he went for a job interview to work for the Toyota company. Honda was rejected and was told that he is not fit for the job!! The man didn’t give up and decided to create a company that competes with Toyota and so honda was born!! If there is anything we can learn from this inspiring success story it would be to never give up
2. Colonel Sanders: The founder of KFC. He started his dream at 65 years old! He got a social security check for only $105 and was mad. Instead of complaining he did something about it.
He thought restaurant owners would love his fried chicken recipe, use it, sales would increase, and he’d get a percentage of it. He drove around the country knocking on doors, sleeping in his car, wearing his white suit.
Do you know how many times people said no till he got one yes? 1009 times!
3. Stephen king: Most people know Stephen king the famous writer but few know about his life story. Stephen’s first novel was rejected almost everywhere it was submitted to the extent that he threw it in the garbage!! His wife got the story out of the garbage and insisted that he submits it again and in the end he became the Stephen king we know now!!
4. Thomas Edison: Thomas failed about 999 times to invent the lamp before he succeed in doing it on the 1000th attempt. When people asked him how did you manage to keep going even though you were failing all the time he replied telling them, each time it didn’t work i used to say i discovered a new way how to not invent the lamp. Thomas Edison success story should make you conclude that failure should never stop you even if it occurred more than once.
5. Albert Eistein: He didn’t speak till he was four and didn’t read till seven. His parents and teachers thought he was mentally handicapped. He only turned out to win a Nobel prize and be the face of modern physics.
