Igor Stravinsky: In when Stravinsky debuted his now famous Rite of Spring, audiences rioted, running the composer out of town. Yet it was this very work that changed the way composers in the 19th century thought about music and cemented his place in musical history. The Beatles: Few people can deny the lasting power of this super group, still popular with listeners around the world today. Yet when they were just starting out, a recording company told them no. Ludwig van Beethoven: In his formative years, young Beethoven was incredibly awkward on the violin and was often so busy working on his own compositions that he neglected to practice.
Despite his love of composing, his teachers felt he was hopeless at it and would never succeed with the violin or in composing. Beethoven kept plugging along, however, and composed some of the best-loved symphonies of all time—five of them while he was completely deaf.
While some athletes rocket to fame, others endure a path fraught with a little more adversity, like those listed here. I have lost almost games. On 26 occasions I have been entrusted to take the game winning shot, and I missed. I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed. Stan Smith: This tennis player was rejected from even being a lowly ball boy for a Davis Cup tennis match because event organizers felt he was too clumsy and uncoordinated.
Smith went on to prove them wrong, showcasing his not-so-clumsy skills by winning Wimbledon, U. Open and eight Davis Cups. Babe Ruth: You probably know Babe Ruth because of his home run record during his career , but along with all those home runs came a pretty hefty amount of strikeouts as well 1, in all. In fact, for decades he held the record for strikeouts. He also has the distinction of having one of the worst first seasons on record winning no games and winning five or fewer over the next four seasons.
The common sense point here is simple.
Problem #1: Winners and losers have the same goals.
Successful people commit to taking personal responsibility for their career success. They also react positively to the people and events in their lives — especially the negative people and events. In this post, I told the stories of 50 well known people who ended up being wildly successful and well known. Let them be an example for you the next time you feel like giving up.
Do you have any people to add to this list?

Bud, my daughter, fresh out of high school, studies her ass off and is still having low marks in College Biology. Again, you are clearly a journalist…NOT a motivator which some of these people seem to think you are!! Thanks for your comment Kelli. Actually, I neither a journalist nor a motivator.
In my work, I find that working harder is the best way to fix career problems. You offer some good advice like working with a tutor. If a student is studying while listening to music on her phone, she should turn off the music to concentrate better. If this is studying smarter, great. I would call it studying harder. Hope your daughter gets it together and does well in her biology class All the best, Bud. Thank you for sharing this! With proper credit and your permission I would like to share these stories with at-risk kids that I am soon to begin instructing in job readiness.
These types of stories are SO motivational. Sir, am so obliged for passing this motivational writeup which has really motivated me and cheer me up to keep moving. However, have never been successful in my education; right from pre primary till my university level.
John D. Rockefeller
I was sent out from my university school in one hundred level because of poor performance so i enrolled in an external programme which is a distance learning programe and by his grace, am in four hundred level now but just managing to scale through. Am highly talented in music; a music composer, a writer, a building designer, an athlete, and a reader. Unfortunately my parents never supported me in studying what i love. My father called me a witch and burnt my drawings while my mum broke my guiter that music is meant for irresponsible people and for my dad, because the houses i designed are so much beautiful and then not seen in our environment.
My songs and my voice are awesome just like a white man. People that cherished my talents begged my dad to send me abroad that our environment will not favour me and make me exploit those talents because there was no full support and encouragement. When my uncle based in America in new jersy came to visit us, he took some of my works over to show his wife and promised to bring me over but to no avail.
Nevertheless, I have faced alot of criticism against my music and voice. Sometimes, i feel like given up but when i tried, it comes with a force again. In my dreams, i do see my self as a best student in architecture class having best grades and also in music class.
