tokoh2 terkenal dan kegagalannya

Kata orang bijak, kegagalan adalah sukses yang tertunda. Di dunia ini, siapa sih yang tidak pernah gagal? Kegagalan adalah bagian dari kehidupan. Namun tanpa kegagalan, mungkin kesuksesan pun tak pernah ada. tsaaaah, bahasanya loooh 😀

Yang jelas, orang pintar akan belajar dari kegagalan dan mereka tidak akan pernah menyerah. Bahkan bila kegagalan itu datang kepadanya 1,000 kali banyaknya, karena mereka tahu kesuksesan akan menunggu dengan setia di ujung lorong yang terang. tsaaaaah lagi aah 😀

Ada bagusnya kita berkaca pada tokoh2 sukses dalam daftar ini, yang berulang kali menemui kegagalan demi kegagalan, tapi mereka tak pernah menyerah. Seperti yang pernah dialami oleh mendiang mantan Presiden Amerika Serikat, Abraham Lincoln berikut ini:

As a young man, Abraham Lincoln went to war a captain and returned a private. Afterwards, he was a failure as a businessman. As a lawyer in Springfield, he was too impractical and temperamental to be a success. He turned to politics and was defeated in his first try for the legislature, again defeated in his first attempt to be nominated for congress, defeated in his application to be commissioner of the General Land Office, defeated in the senatorial election of 1854, defeated in his efforts for the vice-presidency in 1856, and defeated in the senatorial election of 1858.

At about that time, he wrote in a letter to a friend, "I am now the most miserable man living. If what I feel were equally distributed to the whole human family, there would not be one cheerful face on the earth."

Jadi, jangan menyerah dan tetap semangat! kayak Sony Tulung habis bawain kuis Family 100 😀
