Ten INSPIRATIONAL STORY of SUCCESS

There are many success stories you must have across in your life to get yourself motivated to know which path to follow. Before everything, before knowing what and how others define their success stories you have to discover what is the face of your success? Success has a diverse definition that varies from one to the other. Success is living up to your own expectations. In other words, success is living your dreams. Now you have to know what your ‘dreams’ are. Success stories are only to encourage you, to put you up, to help you keep going despite hard times. Failures don't define success; they are a step forward towards success.

Here are ten such inspirational stories for success to inspire you.

Albert Einstein is a living example of how failures can be your staircase to success. Einstein didn’t speak till 3 years of age and it took him 9 years to speak fluently. His teachers said he would do nothing in his life. People considered him to be a retard. His education was interrupted due to his father’s bankruptcy. He faced difficulties at every turn of his life. His thesis was rejected. He failed to get any recommendations. He failed many entrances. He had one regret in life that his father died thinking he was a failure but he didn't decide to give up. He after getting a steady job as a clerk kept working on his research. He even published several books that are still today considered to be a huge revolution in physics. In 1921, Einstein won the Nobel prize in physics, ridiculing everyone whoever denied to accept Einstein’s intelligence.

2. Abraham Lincoln
