But he never stopped trying and that led him to the path of success. He pushed every bad thought out of his head and he became the president of the United States.

Michael Jordan said that he missed more than 900 shots in his career. Failed 300 games. 26 times he was trusted to win the game and he missed it. He was failing over and over again in his life and that did not make him stop. In fact, that is why he succeeded. In school, he was the one who was cut from the basketball team. Great things happen when you do what you love and never give up on it.

 

If we can learn something from these successful stories then it would be the dedication and passion of making the dreams come true and simply not stopping because of the fear of failure.
