At any point in life, there is failure over success that leads a person into a state where he thinks of quitting everything. Failure is unavoidable and causes pessimism. It irritates the person and ends up taking the person away from his goal. the best thing that can bring a person back in form is the stories of great personalities who refused to give up when times were hard and all they could have done is sit at home and not bother about what’s happening. But not giving up will only take you to the places you have always dreamt of.
BELOW ARE THE STORIES OF SOME GREAT PERSONALITIES AND THEIR QUALITY OF NOT GIVING UP:
You must be knowing JACK MA, the founder of Alibaba, was rejected twelve times from job interviews. He grew up poor in communist China. The biggest rejection he faced was from KFC and that could have let him sit at home if he would have termed himself as a failure. But it is said that If you are desperate about anything, everything starts working for you and so did for JACK, he soon became the founder of the e-commerce giant ‘ALIBABA’ that serves as the biggest website in the business. He ranks 34th among the top richest people in the world.
Only if JACK MA would have given up at that point of time, we would never have been able to know about the biggest website in the business.
With each passing day, everyone is much more familiar with HONDA as it is now one of the biggest brands in the market. But the “behind the scenes” is something that will give you a shock. The founder of HONDA, Soichiro Honda was turned down in an interview by the TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION. Honda started making scooters in his home and finally started his own business.
SOICHIRO could have found a different job, but his mindset was clear that he will come back bigger and better and challenge the company that once refused him. The dedication and determination made Honda a successful brand.
You must have heard of the words from Cristiano Ronaldo’s teacher, ” FOOTBALL WILL GIVE YOU NOTHING TO EAT” and rest is history. Becoming the most successful player in the history of football, Ronaldo has taken this sport to the next level. From challenging the greatest of the games to breaking records with each passing day.
At one point of time in life, Ronaldo was diagnosed with a heart disease where the heart beats at a faster rate. He was asked to rest and not to play any sport as his heart would start beating fast, but he never bothered his heart rate and started gyming for long hours and thus became the most successful footballer in the modern era.
Losing the most important person at a tender age is not at all easy. You have to take every responsibility thereafter, taking care of your family, house, and everything. Something same happened with Virat Kolhi who returned home after playing his Ranji trophy match against Karnataka. His team was in deep trouble and was 14/4 at one stage. Everyone knew Virat wouldn’t come to the ground, but what surprised them was seeing him not going to his father’s funeral and coming to the ground to save the match for Delhi.
Delhi managed to save the match and Kohli scored a top knock of 90 and went straight to his father’s funeral. Nobody can ever feel the pain he was in and the motivation that took him to the ground that morning where everything was blank in his mind.
NOTE: THESE GREAT PERSONALITIES HAVE SHOWN THAT EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE IF YOU COME OUT OF THE COMFORT ZONE AND ACHIEVE IT. YOU CAN HAVE SETBACKS, BUT THAT DOESN’T MEAN THAT NOTHING IS POSSIBLE THEREAFTER. IF A NEWSPAPER SELLER CAN BECOME A SCIENTIST (A. P. J ABDUL KALAM) AND A TEA SELLER AT THE RAILWAY STATION CAN BECOME A PRIME MINISTER (NARENDRA MODI), YOU CAN BECOME THE OWN VERSION OF YOURSELF.
