The True story of Abraham Lincoln





A great illustration of this is the life of Abraham Lincoln.

It reads like a biography of a failure .

He had less than one year of formal schooling and failed miserably in business in 1831.

He was defeated for legislature in 1832.

He failed again in business a year in 1832.

his fiancée died in 1835.

He was defeated for speaker of the house in 1838.

He married into what historians call “a living misery” in 1842.

Only one of his four sons lived past the age of 18.

He was defeated again for congress in 1843.

He was elected to congress in 1846.

He was defeated for congress in 1848.

He was defeated for senate in 1855.

He was defeated for vice president in 1856.

He was defeated for senate in 1858 and after 30 years of failure,became one of America’s greatest president in 1860

The road to victory is often through multiple defeats.

Without pains and problems our accomplishments have little value! If it costs nothing,it definitely amount to nothing

Learning to overcome adversity and failure is an inevitable part of achieving success.The key is perseverance.

There are people who have had it easier than you,and done worse;there are equally people who have had it worse than you,and done better.

The circumstances have very little to contribute to getting over past failures.

So why don’t you sit upright,fasten your hold and re-write your own biography today.
