PostSubject: Failures are the pillars to success   Thu Mar 12, 2009 11:14 pm

A candidate for a news broadcasters post was rejected by officials
since his voice was not fit for a news broadcaster. He was also told that
with his obnoxiously long name, he would never be famous.

He is Amitabh Bacchan.

------------ --------- --------- --------- ----
A small boy - the fifth amongst seven siblings of a poor father, was
selling newspapers in a small village to earn his living. He was not
exceptionally smart at school but was fascinated by religion and
rockets.

The first rocket he built crashed. A missile that he built crashed
multiple times and he was made a butt of ridicule. He is the person to
have scripted the Space Odyssey of India single-handedly -

Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam.

------------ --------- --------- --------- -----
In 1962, four nervous young musicians played their first record
audition for the executives of the Decca recording Company. The
executives were not impressed.
While turning down this group of musicians, one executive said, "We
don't like their sound. Groups of guitars are on the way out."

The group was called The Beatles.

------------ --------- --------- --------- -----
In 1944, Emmeline Snively, director of the Blue Book Modelling Agency
old modelling hopeful Norma Jean Baker, "You'd better learn
secretarial work or else get married." She went on and became Marilyn
Monroe.

------------ --------- --------- --------- -----
In 1954, Jimmy Denny, manager of the Grand Ole Opry, Fired a singer
after one performance. He told him, "You ain't goin' nowhere....son.
You ought to go back to drivin' a truck."

He went on to become Elvis Presley.

------------ --------- --------- --------- ----
When Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone in 1876, it did not
ring off the hook with calls from potential backers. After making a
demonstration call,President Rutherford Hayes said, "That's an amazing
invention, but who would ever want to see one of them?"

------------ --------- --------- --------- ----
When Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, he tried over 2000
experiments before he got it to work.
A young reporter asked him how it felt to fail so many times. He said,
"I never failed once. I invented the light bulb. It just happened to be a
2000-step process."

------------ --------- --------- --------- ----
In the 1940s, another young inventor named Chester Carlson took his
idea to 20 corporations, including some of the biggest in the country.
They all turned him down. In 1947, after 7 long years of rejections,
he finally got a tiny company in Rochester, NY, the Haloid company, to
purchase the rights to his invention -- an electrostatic
paper-copying process.

Haloid became Xerox Corporation.

------------ --------- --------- --------- ---
A little girl - the 20th of 22 children, was born prematurely and her
survival was doubtful. When she was 4 years old, she contracted double
pneumonia and scarlet fever, which left her with a paralysed left leg.
At age 9, she removed the metal leg brace she had been dependent on
and began to walk without it.

By 13 she had developed a rhythmic walk, which doctors said was a
miracle. That same year she decided to become a runner. She entered a
race and came in last.

For the next few years every race she entered, she came in last.
Everyone told her to quit, but she kept on running. One day she
actually won a race. And then another. From then on she won every race
she entered.

Eventually this little girl - Wilma Rudolph, went on to win three
Olympic gold medals.

------------ --------- --------- --------- -
A school teacher scolded a boy for not paying attention to his
mathematics and for not being able to solve simple problems. She told
him that you would not become anybody in life.

The boy was Albert Einstein.

------------ --------- --------- --------- -
The Moral of the above Stories:


Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet Only through experiences of
trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition
inspired and success
achieved.

You gain strength, experience and confidence by every experience where you
really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing you cannot do.

And remember, the finest steel gets sent through the hottest furnace.

In LIFE, remember that you pass this way only once! let's live life to the
fullest and give it our extreme best.

"Failure is the pillar of success!"

"Pick battles big enough to matter, small enough to win."

"Words of Encouragement for serious job hunters"

Nice post but I would like to make a few additions and corrections.

The guy who rejected the Beatles had Hanged himself drunken

And by the way Edison did not invent the light bulb.....Humphry Davy and Swan invented it.
Edison plagiarised their works and gained fame. Twisted Evil

He actually said
