Did you know that the richest person on earth today was a big failure in their past? They rose from dropout college, a single parent who lost her job, home, got fired, and was expelled from school, and became the most successful and influential figures up until today.

Failure occurs every day, in school, jobs, housework, and within families. It is unavoidable, irritating, and causes pessimism.

While the thought of flinging your hands in the air and walking away is all too appealing, take a second to connect with the people who have been there and survived.

Here are five famous failures-to-success stories around the world that will inspire you to keep going and achieve greatness: 

  1. J.K. Rowling

In her commencement address at Harvard, J.K. Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter series, stressed the importance and value of failure.

Why? due to the fact that she was once a loser herself. As soon as she graduated from college, her worst fears came true. There was no doubt in her mind about it. "I have gone down in flames." I was a single mother, jobless and as destitute as it is conceivable to be in modern Britain without being homeless after a short-lived marriage fell apart.

My parents' and my own expectations of myself had been realized, and I was the worst failure I had ever encountered. The key to her achievement was the fact that she emerged from this failure stronger and more resolute. 

  1. Steve Jobs

Two men in a garage started Apple, which is today's revolutionary. Many years later, it's a $2 billion corporation with over 4,000 workers that we're all familiar with.

Despite this, Steve Jobs was sacked from the corporation he started. The discharge made him realise that his enthusiasm for his work was greater than the disappointment of failing. Jobs' return to Apple as CEO was eventually aided by his involvement in new companies like NeXT and Pixar.

In 2005, Apple CEO Steve Jobs said, "Apple's firing was the finest thing that could have ever happened to me, even though I didn't see it at the time." Is this your first day without a job? As long as you keep it up, you can become as good as this guy at kicking!

  1. Bill Gates

Bill Gates failed out of Harvard. Traf-O-Data, a business he co-owned, was a complete disaster.

Microsoft's founder, Bill Gates, was just 31 years old when he became the world's youngest self-made millionaire because of his aptitude and enthusiasm for computer programming. In the end, it's better to learn from failure than to celebrate accomplishment.

Even if you don't end up becoming a millionaire, it's possible that your desire to succeed outweighs the value of your Harvard diploma. If you're not like Bill Gates and haven't found your calling, the following advice may be helpful.

4.  Albert Einstein

The name "Einstein" has become a byword for intelligence and brilliance in our culture. However, it is well-known that Albert Einstein, the father of general relativity theory, could not talk properly until the age of nine.

He was expelled from school for his disobedient behavior, and the Zurich Polytechnic School refused to accept him. Despite his previous disappointments, he was able to earn the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1921 despite them. Ultimately, he was convinced: "Success is merely failure in progress."

His work continues to have an impact on a wide range of areas, including religion, art, and even late-night television. Even if you haven't accomplished much in your life, it doesn't rule out the possibility of becoming an Einstein. 

  1. Abraham Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln was no stranger to rejection and loss, having failed in business in 1831, suffering a nervous breakdown in 1836, and being defeated in his presidential campaign in 1856.

Instead of giving up because of these indicators, he refused to quit trying. To use the words of this great leader: "The most important thing for me to know is whether or not you are satisfied with your failure.

Lincoln was first elected president of the United States in 1861. He served from 1861 to 1865. You aren't defined by how many times you've been rejected. You still have a chance to succeed. 


So what did you think? Do you feel down in your current situation? Your dreams are fading far away from your reach. You feel fed up and move on to your regular hated job and forget your dream. You stored your passion in the Blackbox inside your garage. No! like they said many times, "FAILURE IS A PROGRESS TO SUCCESS". Keep doin what you love and passion and the good things will coming.
