Are you one of those people who come up with a billion and one reasons why you would not succeed at what you do? Now here’s an interesting story that would inspire you to keeping going and never give up.

At age 7, he was compelled to work to support his family who were forced out of their home…

At age 9, his mother died…

At 23, he lost his job…

At 23, he tried to get into Law school and he did not succeed…

At 24, he borrowed money to start up a business and went bankrupt…

At 26, his fiancée died and he was devastated…

At 27, he had a nervous breakdown and was bedridden for 6 months…

He decided to focus on politics but he lost 8 different elections …

Yet he became one of the world’s greatest men…

Abraham Lincoln became the 16th President of the United States of America… the world’s most influential nation.

He was undeterred by his failures as he eventually succeeded. So next time you fail, try again and never give up.

Cheers!
