I'm pretty sure this has been posted before and I think it's that good I'm going to post it again for the people who haven't seen it.

I remember reading something online with a similar theme and you'd be amazed how many of history's greatest people, innovations, and inventions which we still use today (including the telephone and the television) were doubted, written off, and even ridiculed by people who "Knew what they were talking about."

And I think that's a great testament for the tenacity of the human spirit.

Here's the video.

    I think the single most important thing I ever read was that Thomas Edison said "I didn't fail a thousand times. The light bulb was an invention with a thousand steps." Showed me that we now live in a world beautifully lit by the tenacity of a single man who succeeded because of a 1000 failures.

    The most inspiring model in this video is Abraham Lincoln.

    His younger days is about failures, he even gone through a nervous breakdown, yet eventually he became one of the best President of America.

    ...Albert Einstein was a theoretical physicist widely regarded as the most important scientist of the 20th century. He was awarded the 1921 Nobel Prize for Physics for his explanation of the photoelectric effect in 1905 and "for his services to Theoretical Physics". However, when Einstein was young, his parents thought he was mentally retarded. His grades in school were so poor that a teacher asked him to quit, saying, "Einstein, you will never amount to anything!".....

    Save the link of this video, and you are thinking to give up, remember about this movie, review it, and try again. When you fail you get closer to succeed because you know what is wrong.

    Great video - thanks for sharing.

    Here are a few more thoughts:

    Harry Potter was rejected a dozen times before being published.
    Dr. Seuss's first book was rejected by over 20 publishers
    Gone with the Wind was rejected 38 times
    Judy Blume received nothing but rejections for two years.

    And here is a quote from Judy Blume:

    "Determination and hard work are as important as talent."

      I remember recently reading somewhere that Thomas Edison had failed a "thousand times" before finally getting the light bulb right.

      When asked about it, he is quoted as saying "I didn't fail a thousand times, I just found a thousand ways it didn't work."

      A brilliant way of looking at things
