- DONALD TRUMP
You know Donald Trump and you have heard of recession in countries like Nigeria. Did you know that Trump was a victim of recession that nearly evicted him out of business? He became a master debtor then, but today, we can comfortably call him the world’s number 1 giver
- BILL GATES
Virtually everybody know Bill Gates be the world’s richest man but a few percentage of us know that he experienced many landslides in his road to glory. E.g. His Traf-O-business did not even pass the early stage of any business but with persistence, he is who he is today
- OPRAH WINFREY
This name commands respect among humanity especially women. The popularity of the name is a product of many years of trials and failures. Today every TV station wants to Host the Icon but, then, she was a victim of a SACK from a TV station.
- THOMAS EDISON
Thomas Edison is an entrepreneur who bears the record of having the greatest number of inventions as an individual. His invention include the light bulb, see more here.
But, you may not have known that he failed about 1000 times in his attempts to invent the light bulb.
Who knows the number of times he failed in others. Later he said
“I am not discourage by the mistakes I make today, for each wrong attempt discarded is a step forward”.
With the level of information we have today, you don’t need to fail up to 1000 times, but note that the few times you may fail brings you closer to success
- HENRY FORD
You may not know Henry, but who does not know Ford – One of the strongest cars of our time – . It was invented by Henry Ford after many efforts that left him pretty broke as at then
- ORVILLE WRIGHT
Two brothers who invented the Aeroplane. As at then, their invention killed more people than it conveyed, due to its many crashes. At a point these fellow, considered abandoning the business venture as a futile one. Later did they know that their invention will make the best of the times even till today.
