    Another Famously Successful People Who Failed at First


    Not everyone who’s on top today got there with success after success. More often than not, those who history best remembers were faced with numerous obstacles that forced them to work harder and show more determination than others. Next time you’re feeling down about your failures in college or in a career, keep these fifty famous people in mind and remind yourself that sometimes failure is just the first step towards success.



    Business Gurus

    These businessmen and the companies they founded are today known around the world, but as these stories show, their beginnings weren’t always smooth.



    2. R. H. Macy: Most people are familiar with this large department store chain, but Macy didn’t always have it easy. Macy started seven failed business before finally hitting big with his store in New York City.


    3. F. W. Woolworth: Some may not know this name today, but Woolworth was once one of the biggest names in department stores in the U.S. Before starting his own business, young Woolworth worked at a dry goods store and was not allowed to wait on customers because his boss said he lacked the sense needed to do so.



    4. Soichiro Honda: The billion-dollar business that is Honda began with a series of failures and fortunate turns of luck. Honda was turned down by Toyota Motor Corporation for a job after interviewing for a job as an engineer, leaving him jobless for quite some time. He started making scooters of his own at home, and spurred on by his neighbors, finally started his own business.



    5. Akio Morita: You may not have heard of Morita but you’ve undoubtedly heard of his company, Sony. Sony’s first product was a rice cooker that unfortunately didn’t cook rice so much as burn it, selling less than 100 units. This first setback didn’t stop Morita and his partners as they pushed forward to create a multi-billion dollar company.


    6. Bill Gates: Gates didn’t seem like a shoe-in for success after dropping out of Harvard and starting a failed first business with Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen called Traf-O-Data. While this early idea didn’t work, Gates’ later work did, creating the global empire that is Microsoft.



    7. Harland David Sanders: Perhaps better known as Colonel Sanders of Kentucky Fried Chicken fame, Sanders had a hard time selling his chicken at first. In fact, his famous secret chicken recipe was rejected 1,009 times before a restaurant accepted it.



    8. Walt Disney: Today Disney rakes in billions from merchandise, movies and theme parks around the world, but Walt Disney himself had a bit of a rough start. He was fired by a newspaper editor because, “he lacked imagination and had no good ideas.” After that, Disney started a number of businesses that didn’t last too long and ended with bankruptcy and failure. He kept plugging along, however, and eventually found a recipe for success that worked.
    Scientists and Thinkers
    These people are often regarded as some of the greatest minds of our century, but they often had to face great obstacles, the ridicule of their peers and the animosity of society.



    9. Albert Einstein: Most of us take Einstein’s name as synonymous with genius, but he didn’t always show such promise. Einstein did not speak until he was four and did not read until he was seven, causing his teachers and parents to think he was mentally handicapped, slow and anti-social. Eventually, he was expelled from school and was refused admittance to the Zurich Polytechnic School. It might have taken him a bit longer, but most people would agree that he caught on pretty well in the end, winning the Nobel Prize and changing the face of modern physics.



    10. Charles Darwin: In his early years, Darwin gave up on having a medical career and was often chastised by his father for being lazy and too dreamy. Darwin himself wrote, “I was considered by all my masters and my father, a very ordinary boy, rather below the common standard of intellect.” Perhaps they judged too soon, as Darwin today is well-known for his scientific studies.



    11. Robert Goddard: Goddard today is hailed for his research and experimentation with liquid-fueled rockets, but during his lifetime his ideas were often rejected and mocked by his scientific peers who thought they were outrageous and impossible. Today rockets and space travel don’t seem far-fetched at all, due largely in part to the work of this scientist who worked against the feelings of the time.

    12. Isaac Newton
    : Newton was undoubtedly a genius when it came to math, but he had some failings early on. He never did particularly well in school and when put in charge of running the family farm, he failed miserably, so poorly in fact that an uncle took charge and sent him off to Cambridge where he finally blossomed into the scholar we know today.


    13. Socrates: Despite leaving no written records behind, Socrates is regarded as one of the greatest philosophers of the Classical era. Because of his new ideas, in his own time he was called “an immoral corrupter of youth” and was sentenced to death. Socrates didn’t let this stop him and kept right on, teaching up until he was forced to poison himself.


    14. Robert Sternberg: This big name in psychology received a C in his first college introductory psychology class with his teacher telling him that, “there was already a famous Sternberg in psychology and it was obvious there would not be another.” Sternberg showed him, however, graduating from Stanford with exceptional distinction in psychology, summa cum laude, and Phi Beta Kappa and eventually becoming the President of the American Psychological Association.


    Inventors

    These inventors changed the face of the modern world, but not without a few failed prototypes along the way.



    15. Thomas Edison: In his early years, teachers told Edison he was “too stupid to learn anything.” Work was no better, as he was fired from his first two jobs for not being productive enough. Even as an inventor, Edison made 1,000 unsuccessful attempts at inventing the light bulb. Of course, all those unsuccessful attempts finally resulted in the design that worked.



    16. Orville and Wilbur Wright: These brothers battled depression and family illness before starting the bicycle shop that would lead them to experimenting with flight. After numerous attempts at creating flying machines, several years of hard work, and tons of failed prototypes, the brothers finally created a plane that could get airborne and stay there.

    Very Inspirational
    Lakin wasiwasi wangu ni namna hawa watu wanavyoweza kucreate positive demonstrational effect kwa vijana wetu kwan kwa kumuona hizi biashara zao za sasa zilivyo watu wanaweza wakaogopa na kudhani kuwa haiwezekani kumbe wengine (kama S. Honda) alianza kwa kurepair baiskeli

    His father had a bicycle shop. Bicycles were at last starting to become really popular in Japan and when people asked Gihei (his father) to repair their machines, he sensed a business opportunity. As well as working as a blacksmith he put his natural skills and willingness to learn to good effect, repairing second-hand bicycles and re-selling them at competitive prices.

    From this moment his business began to be seen as the best bicycle store in the neighborhood.

    Mkuu, upo sahihi. Unajua wengi wetu tumeingia kwenye ujasiriamali out of economic necessity, na tunafanya biashara si kama profession but ilimradi tu kumake ends meet. Yaan ni kama ajali hivi ilitokea halafu mtu akajikuta yupo kwenye Biashara. Na ukitaka kuamini angalia mzazi anayefanya biashara (aliyeingia kwenye biashara out of economic necessity), anavyomkanya mwanawe;
    "sitakubali kabisa mwanangu apate hizi shida ninazozipata mimi"
    "mwanangu soma sana ili uje upate kazi nzuri na kutusaidia wazazi wako"
    Mara .... (yaan kwa mawazo haya hata siku huyo mtoto akitaka kuingia kwenye biashara atakuwa ameshafeli hata kabla hajaanza kwani kisaikolojia ameshaathirika).

    Lakini ukiwaangalia watanzania wenzetu wenye asili ya Asia, mambo ni tofauti kabisa.! Mzazi anamfundisha mwanawe biashara tangu mdogo, na kumtia moyo huku akimsomesha ili aje aweze kuisimamia biashara vizuri.

    Jamani tubadilike

    - NIKO HUKU ARUSHA INANIUMA SANA WALIFELI KIDATO CHA NNE WANAVYO HANGAIKA KUSOMA KOZI ZA ENGLISH NA WENGINE HOTEL MANAGMENT, NA WANAO SOMA ENGLISH KOZI UKIWAULIZA TARGET YAO NINI NI ILI WAPATE KAZI KIURAHISI KWANI WAKIONGEA KINGEREZA ITAKUWA RAHISI KWAO

    - KWA WALIOMALIZA KIDATO CHA NNE NA KUFELI HAKUNA WENYE MAWAZO YA KUJIAJIRI KWA SABABU AKILI ZAO HAZIKUWA KWENYE KUJIAJILI BALI KUSOMA WAJE KUAJILIWA,

    - HII NI HATALI SANA NA MIMI HAPA KWA KWELI NIWALAUMU WAZAZI INGAWA HATA WAO WAMELITHI HII KITU

    Hapo kwenye RED si wazazi peke yake bali mpaka walimu. But nadhani tukizidi kulaumu tu bila kuchukua hatua tutashindwa kutoka hapa. Sasa tufanyaje?
    1. Wapo wazazi waliochukua hatua kwa kubadilika?
    2. Wapo vijana waliotafuta guidance kwa watu wengine baada ya kuona wazazi wao wanawakatisha tamaa.
    3. Na wapo wajasiriamali walioanzisha shule, inayofundisha hata yale yasiyofundishwa Darasani (Mwandege Boys Secondary School) ili kuwaandaa vijana wetu katika kukabiliana na Dunia ya Utandawazi na changamoto zake. They say
    Je wewe unashauri nini?

    Ni kwamba hapa kazi ipo tena kubwa sana na mimi nazani kazi ianze sasa kuwageuza wazazi na walimu kwamba wafundisheni watoto shuleni lakini mkiwaambia wanasoma ili waje kuwa wakurugenzi wa makampuni yao wenyewe,
    Vyuo kama VETA vingeweza kuwasaidia watoto ila navyo vimegeuka vimekuwa ni kuwaandaa vijana kusaka ajira

    - NA VIJANA WENGI HAWAPENDI VYUO VYA KWENDA KUWAANDAA KUWA WAJASIRIMALI WANATAKA VYA KUWANDAA KUKAA OFISINI, na ndo maana katika mwamko wa biashara vijana wengi waliomaliza kidato cha nne na sita wakijitahidi sana wanaanzaisha saloon,

    KUNA KAZI SANA YA KUWASAIDIA HAWA VIJANA MIMI KUNA MPANGO KAZI NAANDAA NA UKIKAMILIKA NITAWASAIDIA PART, KATIKA KUWAELIMISHA LAKINI SI KUWAPA KAZI MAKE INATAKIWA WAFUNDISHWE KUVUA SAMAKI NA SI KUWAFUNDISHA KULA SAMAKI

    Kwa kweli ni muhimu tubadilike! Watoto wetu tuwape elimu ya ujasiliamali pia kwani ajira imekuwa ngumu sana nchi hii. Pamoja na mitaji kuwa tatizo lazima tujifunze njia mbadala ya kupata mitaji kwa ajili ya watoto wetu.

    On my side naona tunahitaji kujiamini sisi wenye kwamba tunaweza. Mfano mzuri ni kutoka kwa Abraham Lincolin hope mnamjua vizuri tu, huyu jamaa alifight mara 9 bila matokeo mazuri lkn kutokana na kujiamin kwake aliishangaza dunia pale alipokuwa raisi wa Marekani. so FAITH, DESIRE, DETERMINATION & DISCIPLINE vinaitajika.
