Thomas Edison: In his early years, teachers told Edison he was “too stupid to learn anything.”

Churchill struggled in school and failed the sixth grade. After school he faced many years of political failures, as he was defeated in every election for public office until he finally became the Prime Minister at the ripe old age of 62.

Steven Spielberg was rejected from the University of Southern California School of Theater, Film and Television three times. He eventually attended school at another location, only to drop out to become a director before finishing.

Michael Jordan: Most people wouldn’t believe that a man often lauded as the best basketball player of all time was actually cut from his high school basketball team. Luckily, Jordan didn’t let this setback stop him from playing the game and he has stated, “I have missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I have lost almost 300 games. On 26 occasions I have been entrusted to take the game winning shot, and I missed. I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”

Honda was turned down by Toyota Motor Corporation for an engineering job and stayed unemployed for some time.


The bigger picture

The road and the obstacles
The Road and The Obstacles was “too stupid to learn anything.”

The challenges are real

If you are making harder decisions, it means you are growing

With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility

Growth will attract attention. You will gain enemies. More people will start hating you. Criticizing You.

Social Pressures will increase, specially from Family

Financial Pressures will be present

Performance will be a result of Self Motivation and Not any External Pressure


A Dream was “too stupid to learn anything.” Goal (Vision)

Courage

Ability to Take Risk (Nothing to Lose)

Life is not 2+2 = 4

Nothing is Ideal in Life
