Is it really possible to achieve anything you want in your life?
Yes, but sometimes it takes longer than we think and many times we give up just before we achieve what we wanted and dream about it for so long. Success is a journey and you become successful as soon as you begin the journey.
I have to admit I used to be very impatient and always wanted everything right away. But then I learned that on the way to achieve what ever we dream about, we have to come across certain obstacles. It is a test how strong and how determined we are. It may be very hard at the beginning and you may fail, but that's ok. Just keep trying and don't give up. There are no shortcuts to life's greatest achievements.
The other day I came across this short inspirational stories below of failure turned into fame by amazing people we all know and respect. Please, read them and remember that we all can achieve what ever we want.
1.) Walt Disney was fired by a newspaper editor for lack of ideas. Disney also went to bankrupt several times, before he build ''Disneyland.'' But he never gave up.
2.) When the first ''Chicken Soup for the Soul'' book was completed, it was turned down by ''33'' publishers in New York and another ''90'' at the American Booksellers Association convention in Anaheim, California.....before Health Communications,Inc., finally agreed to publish it. The major New York publishers said: ''Nobody wants to read a book of short little stories.''
Since then more than 8 million copies of the original Chicken Soup for the Soul book have been sold. The series, which has grown to ''32'' titles, in ''31'' languages has sold more than 53 million copies.
3.) In 1954, Jimmy Denny, manager of the Grand Ole Opry, fired Elvis Presley after one performance. He told Presley: ''You ain't going nowhere...son. You ought to go back to driving a truck.'' After that, Elvis Presley went on to become the most popular singer in America.
