    Lightbulb Define a Winner ??????

    hello friends..
    so i am back with another good thing (i hope so ) ..
    so read this.. i got it from one of my friend..
    and i was thrilled... and i am sure u all will also.....

    When Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, he tried over 2000
    before he got it to work. A young reporter asked him how it felt to
    fail so
    many times. He said, "I never failed once. I invented the light bulb.
    just happened to be a 2000-step process."


    Wilma Rudolph was the 20th of 22 children. She was born prematurely and
    survival was doubtful. When she was 4 years old, she contacted double
    pneumonia and scarlet fever, which left her with a paralysed left leg.
    age 9, she removed the metal leg brace she had been dependent on and
    to walk without it. By 13 she had developed a rhythmic walk, which
    said was a miracle. That same year she decided to become a runner. She
    entered a race and came in last. For the next few years every race she
    entered, she came in last. Everyone told her to quit, but she kept on
    running. One day she actually won a race. And then another. From then
    on she
    won every race she entered. Eventually this little girl, who was told
    would never walk again, went on to win three Olympic gold medals.


    In 1962, four nervous young musicians played their first record
    audition for
    the executives of the Decca recording Company. The executives were not
    impressed. While turning down this group of musicians, one executive
    "We don't like their sound. Groups of guitars are on the way out."
    The group was called The Beatles.


    In 1944, Emmeline Snively, director of the Blue Book Modelling Agency,
    modelling hopeful Norma Jean Baker, "You'd better learn secretarial
    work or else get married."
    She went on and became Marilyn Monroe.


    In 1954, Jimmy Denny, manager of the Grand Ole Opry, Fired a singer
    one performance. He told him, "You ain't goin' nowhere....son. You
    ought to
    go back to drivin' a truck."
    He went on to become the most popular singer in America named Elvis


    When Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone in 1876, it did not
    off the hook with calls from potential backers. After making a
    call, President Rutherford Hayes said, "That's an amazing invention,
    but who
    would ever want to use one of them?"


    In the 1940s, another young inventor named Chester Carlson took his
    idea to
    20 corporations, including some of the biggest in the country. They all
    turned him down. In 1947 - after seven long years of rejections! He
    got a tiny company in Rochester, New York, the Haloid company, to
    the rights to his invention an electrostatic paper-copying process.
    Haloid became Xerox Corporation we know today.


    The Moral of the above Stories:
    Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through
    experiences of
    trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared,
    inspired and success achieved. You gain strength, experience and
    by every experience where you really stop to look fear in the face....
    must do the thing you cannot do. And remember, the finest steel gets
    through the hottest furnace.

    A winner is not one who never fails, but one who NEVER QUITS!

    thank u for reading..

    I believe I've seen this before... I find it very inspiring. It just goes to show persistance pays off.

    *Looks at the other 1000 people who didn't make it for every one person who was a big success...* Eh, screw it.

    Add to that the story about the casting director at a major Hollywood studio who took two hopeful young actors aside and dashed their hopes of stardom to pieces. He told one of them that he just couldn't act, and the other that his adams apple was too big and it made him unattractive. Their names? Burt Reynolds and Clint Eastwood.
    It isn't paranoia when you KNOW they're out to get you...
