Success and Failure

Winston Churchill

A young English boy was called ‘carrot top’ by other students and was given little chance by some teachers. He ranked third lowest in class and constantly failed mathematics and Latin. He repeated his grade twice and was said to have little understanding of his school work. He never gave up though, and eventually became Prime Minister of England. His name was Winston Churchill.

Elvis Presley
When Elvis Presley in 1953 tried out as a singer in the Grand Ole Opry, the main judge pulled him aside and asked him, “What do you do for a living?” And Elvis responded “I drive trucks, Sir.” To which the judge responded, “Well, I suggest that you forget about singing and keep on trucking!” The world of music is glad that Elvis did not follow the judge’s suggestion and did not give up on his singing career.
