    JAMANI VIJANA WENZANGU KATIKA KIPIGANA NA MAISHA UNAISHI VP AU UNAFIGHT TU BILA DIRECTION ? WHO IS YOUR ROLE MODEL (somebody to be copied) TUSHEE HII STORY YA ROLE MODEL WANGUAbraham Lincoln on Success and Failure

    22Nov

    "My great concern is not whether you have failed, but whether you are content with your failure." – Abraham Lincoln

    Failure can either break us or make us. Those broken by failure are haunted by unpleasant memories. These memories are like shadows that lurk in front, behind, beside, beneath and above. It is also a cage that traps the mind, preventing it to entertain possibilities of freedom and success. They are convinced that they cannot do it; therefore, they will not try.
    For those that failure could not break are those who became made "men." Failure to them is not a ghost, but a friend who taught them well. It is also a stepping stone to wisdom. These men and women are convinced that true failure only happens when one gives up.
    History has been kind to President Abraham Lincoln. He has been painted as probably the greatest president of the United States of America. It is the good thing that history also recorded his failures. It reflected his frail humanity but also showed his attitude of never giving up.
    These failures could not stop him, he kept moving forward. The following is a short list of his ups and downs and ups.
    *1831 – Failed in business
    1832 – Defeated for legislature
    1833 – Again failed in business
    1834 – Elected to legislature
    1835 – Sweetheart died
    1836 – Had a nervous breakdown
    1838 – Defeated for speaker
    1840 – Defeated for elector
    1843 – Defeated for Congress
    1846 – Elected for Congress
    1848 – Defeated for Congress
    1855 – Defeated for Senate
    1856 – Defeated for Vice-President
    1858 – Defeated for Senate
    1860 – ELECTED PRESIDENT
    He experienced defeat more than twice, but that did not mean he was a failure. Remember, that failures are only permanent if we stop trying. I believe the only real failure is the failure not to move on.
    --------------------------------the only way
    to deal with failure
    is to learn from it
    and move on
    --------------------------------

    Do we really believe that genius is simply born rather than formed?

    Without going much into detail his is a remarkable and inspirational story of overcoming. He overcame a whole lot when he was growing up.

    He put himself through school against all odds. Imagine you being the only kid who is going to school in your village and everybody else teasing you about it because it's not the cool thing to do. But you remain steadfast and headstrong and refuse to succumb to peer pressure. To me that is very admirable.

    Regardless of all of that he did exceptionally well. Taught primary school, secondary school, and then ended up teaching at some of the best universities in the world.

    He is an unimpeachably honest person. He has taught me a lot about life. When I was kid growing up, to me he seemed like he was Superman. He seemed like he was a walking and talking encyclopaedia. It's like he knew everything. Anything I'd ask he would tell me about it.

    Not too long ago me and him sat down and talked about life. In that conversation I found out that this man has been working all these years for me. He has been working his butt off just to make sure that when he is long gone from this world that I'll still be fine.

    He told me he loves me unconditionally. I teared up after he told me that and that's why I have 300 million reasons to hold him in the highest esteem!
