Walt Disney has been known as one of the most famous cartoonist and creator of the famous cartoon creatures such as Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, etc to name a few. He even failed several times in his life. His unsuccessful attempt to join armed forces finally forced him to drop out of schools and leave his further studies. His initiative Laugh-O-Gram Studios even went bankrupt and finally, after joining a newspaper agency named Missouri Newspaper, he was fired because of not being creative enough as per the expectations.
- Passion is what keeps you going when everyone else is tired… money can’t do that for you, only passion; passion is power. “It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.” Walt Disney said, “If you can dream it, you can do it.” Life is too short to spend it doing the possible.
Albert Einstein is a well-known scientist and extraordinary genius personality known by almost all of us all over the world due to his great inventions and contributions towards science.

He was not even able to speak fluently till the age of nine years following which he has been expelled from the school. Furthermore, his admission to Zurich Polytechnic School was also not considered. But, leading to the ways of success consistently, he proved himself as a renowned gem in the ocean of science and technology and finally won the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1921.

It was very much important for Bill gates to heed the lessons of failure in comparison to celebrating the joy of success. This great entrepreneur who has established Microsoft like the biggest software company is a dropout student from Harvard. Furthermore, he has also been known for his self-owned business figure known as Traf-O-Data which was one of the biggest failures in history. The entire investment of Bill Gates got vanished and unfortunately, even the education could also not get completed. But, the keen desire and passion for computer programming based stuff led him to establish such biggest software company with the brand name ‘Microsoft’.
Life is Not Fair
Another of Bill Gates’ success lessons is to learn that life is not fair. No matter how hard you work in life, there will always be times where things don’t go your way, perhaps through no fault of your own. Things that you cannot control. You will get knocked down, but you need to be able to stand up.
These people experienced their own storms, setbacks and difficulties, in their area or field. But their success overshadowed the pains of their difficulties. That’s what we should do. If you are not consistent and dedicated, you will not be at the level you dream of getting to. It’s not a motivation. It’s reality.
Good luck 🍀
