Rising Up

In last few days I had to go through a bad experience, some of the decisions I had taken before proved to be wrong, my first reaction to this was like I felt everything is over, I have lost everything and my confidence in my abilities was shaken but then while browsing on internet I read many stories which inspired me not to give up.

Some of the most successful people have experienced big failures in their life but did not give up. Some of these I am listing below

Bill Gates

Bill Gates is one of the most recognizable figures in the tech industry, responsible for creating Microsoft and currently standing as one of the wealthiest people on the planet. Many people attribute his success to a kind of luck or sudden twist of fortune; he had a great idea at just the right time during the technology boom, and got rich developing it to perfection. But the reality is, Bill Gates experienced a crushing failure before he had anything to do with Microsoft. Originally, Gates created a product called Traf-O-Data, which analyzed data from traffic tapes. The product didn’t work properly, and the company never took off, so Gates decided to try something else.

The Lesson:

Traf-O-Data never had any hope of being successful, but that was no reflection on Gates’s potential. if your idea, even though it seems great, doesn’t pan out the way you thought it would, remember that you still have plenty of ideas and opportunities ahead of you.

Stephen King

One of the most recognizable novelists of the modern era, Stephen King is widely regarded as a master of horror writing. Despite now having dozens of financially, critically, and popularly successful titles in circulation, King’s first novel, Carrie, was almost a failure. The novel was rejected 30 times before it was finally accepted and published, leading to King’s breakout career. King considered quitting, and many people would have quit, but his perseverance led to greatness.

The Lesson:

Simple adjustments can turn a failure into a success. Revising your idea, targeting a different audience, or redefining your brand identity could all easily take a failed concept and turn it into something more successful.

Steve Jobs

A mastermind of technological innovation and corporate vision, Steve Jobs is responsible for making Apple the company it is today. However, his past is littered with failures, setbacks, and crushing defeats. Jobs started Apple in 1976 and the company began to take off, but after an unsuccessful product launch in 1985, Jobs was kicked out of his own company. Most ordinary people would have given up at that point, but instead, Jobs founded a new company called NeXT. NeXT was considered unsuccessful as well, at least for a time, until it caught the eye of a struggling Apple in 1997. Apple purchased the company and brought Jobs back into a leadership position, which he used to develop and launch Apple’s breakthrough products, including the iPod, iPhone, and iPad.

The Lesson:

Perseverance is everything. Because he committed himself to doing great things, Jobs was able to work past his personal and professional failures, and eventually leave behind a monumental and unprecedented legacy.

These and many more stories inspired me to find new ways to reach my goals.In the end I would just like to say one thing

“I will win not immediately but definetly……”
