Abraham Lincoln was defeated in 26 political campaigns. He also failed at various business ventures and even declared bankruptcy twice over his lifetime. Something inside him made him keep trying though and in November of 1860, he became America’s 16th president. His Emancipation Proclamation in 1862 freed slaves in 10 states. His Gettysburg Address delivered in 1863 announced to the masses that America was a nation, “conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.”
Though he was assassinated in 1865, his radical ideologies changed the face of America. The course of American history was altered by Lincoln’s beliefs that no human being should be the property of another.
In wholly different venues, men like Walt Disney and Ludwig von Beethoven changed our lives as well. Their contributions were timeless, but they too, were told as children that they would never amount to anything. Sometimes people become so discouraged by bad childhood experiences that they are emotionally crippled but a select few just take the negative events in stride and use them as steppingstones to success.
