The most famous failures

I know there are times when we all feel like failures, when we can't get anything right, when our dreams look too big to ever achieve.

But I am here to tell you, you are in good company of failures, many, many people who changed the world failed and failed big before making it.

Thomas Edison failed over 10,000 times and he said
"Why would I feel like a failure? There are over 9000 ways a light bulb won't work"
He never gave up, some of you give up after one time, two times maybe a few of you will hold on to three but then your outta there. He tried 9,999 times before he got it right, that is determination, that is about never giving up on your dream.

Colonel Sanders was 78 when he made the world's most famous chicken.

Walt Disney is truly a man who knows the difdeence between winning and losing, it is not ever giving up.
He never gave, every failure was oppunituny to try again.

He was fired by a newspaper because they said he lacked ideas, ha now isn't that funny? The most creative man in our lifetime lacked creativity...
No, the people who refused to see his, lacked creativity.

Sometimes it's other people's small minds that can't see or imagine your big dreams, your job is to ignore them and keep the faith.
There are so many failures on this list for you to look up to:
Steve Jobs, JK Rowling, Micheal Jordan, even Albert Einstein and Abraham Lincoln failed many times, so believe that your are in good company.

You see all of these people had one thing in common they would never gave up, they never took no for an answer, they never stop believing in their dream and that their dream was going to come true.

That's all you need in this life, you need a dream to hold on to, you need a dream to believe in and you need the faith and confidence to believe in yourself even when all others do not.

You need a can do attitude and a Fighter's mentality, that no matter how many times you get knocked down, you will get back up and keep trying until you win that prize.

I write this blog everyday and some days I'm more confident than others, some days I'm human and I cried out to God, "When when is this going to happen?"
See but I don't ever ask God IF this is going to happen because I know it's going to happen, I just don't know when.
I will never give up, no matter how many years go by, this will happen.

When I started thinking about how long I've waited, I look at these people, because some of them didn't start their careers until much later in life, after many rejections, many broken hopes and knockdowns yet they still held on and that's what I have to do.

Do you know how many times people have laughed and said "You're in the second half of your life, you're never going to be a New York Times bestselling author, be on Oprah Super Soul Sunday or have Tlyer Perry produce your life story, you're too old to start another career or your dream is way too big, there is no way it I could happen, how is that going to happen? How are you going to do that?"

And that's when you have to do what you have to, cut off the nay sayers, walk away, blocked them, they have no idea that you can and will be the next big thing. You have to hold on, you just have to believe in yourself even when no one else does.

Who's telling you you can't do it? These people don't know your faith, your belief in yourself, they don't have your fighters heart.

You are never too old to get started, to start over, to inspire, to change the world.

You cannot move forward if you keep looking back.
One of the main reasons we don't go after our dreams is fear
Fear paralyzes you.. it keeps you stuck, only your inner strengh will get you through.

So today my friends remember you can do anything, you are not a failure, you my friends just have a vision, a dream that is way to big for others to see or grasp, so to them, it's impossible. Keep going anyways, never give have big footsteps to follow, of the most famous failures.

"Be the change you want to see"

"And just when the caterpillar thought his life over...he turned into a beautiful butterfly"
