    Don't give up!

    Today we cannot see many roads without seeing a Honda made vehicle pass by. It has become a super power in the automobile industry now! 

    In 1938, when Honda took his first working sample of piston ring Toyota. It was rejected stating that the sample was not up to their standards. Rather than focusing on the failure, he continued to work on his goal. After two years of redesigning, he finally won a contract with Toyota. He built a factory which was brought down into rubbles by an earthquake.

    Honda was not a man who would accept failures as a possibility. Recession & depression caused by the war had created extreme gasoline shortage in Japan. So people resorted to walking & cycling. Honda designed a tiny engine & attached to his bicycle.His neighbours too wanted one of those motorised cycles from him. He was unable to meet the demand. So, he built a plan & manufactured his motorcycle, “The super cub” which earned him the emperor’s award. Today, Honda Corporation employs over 10,00,000 people. Why?
    Honda never considered failure at the end.

    The newspaper editor fired him because he had no good ideas. A pastor employed him to draw canvassing material for the church. He was allowed to stay in the backyard of a mouse-infested church gauge. One of those mice inspired the man so much, that  “ Mickey Mouse” was born, & Walt Disney was revealed to the world.

    Einstien’s  parents thought that he was mentally retarded. Steven Spielberg was placed in a special class for learning disabled. Issac Newton did poorly in grade school. Beethoven’s music teacher told him,” You are hopeless”. Michael Jordan was dropped from his high school basketball team. Winston Churchill failed in his 6th grade. Edison’s teacher told him he was too stupid to learn anything.

    Failure is a parenthesis inside which the success hides. There is no sunrise without sunset. There is no life without death. There cannot be an only success and no failures. Champions understand that it is better to face outstanding failures than mediocre success. Only those who would not succumb to defeats, only those who persisted in spite of midway failures went on to write success stories.
    Image result for cartoon images for dont give upNothing wrong ever turned out to be right in the long run. The very fact that so many failures have finally turned into success implies that failures are not wrong. Learn from your failures and move on.

    “Many of life’s failures are people who did not realise how close they were to success when they gave up”

    Just don’t give up!!
