If you may recall, 3 months ago I wrote an “inspirational stories” styled article, Drawing Inspirations from your Miserable Failures detailing my lessons from an initial setback with Goal Setting College. Not exactly an achievement but what started as a seemingly personal review turned out to be inspirational enough to be linked and commented by some of you. Thank you so much for supporting Goal Setting College!
From the feedback that I’ve received, I know most of you’re yearning for more! So, for the next coming months or so, I’ll be showcasing 10 classic inspirational stories about famous personalities who have overcome odds, setbacks and failures to achieve remarkable successes and growth in their lives, in a biographical style. At the end of each story, I’ll reveal my personal thoughts, learnings, insights and I hope you’ll like the stories as much as I enjoy narrating them to you in my own words.
Most importantly, I wish these inspirational stories will be able to drive you into action on whatever that you’ve set your sight on, even before the moment you finish reading! And if you’d like to participate, it’ll be great if you can drop us a comment about your own thoughts at the end of each article.
Till the first story.
