Hi.

I'm fascinated by all of the stories of famous people who have failed many, many times before achieving success. Did you know it took Thomas Edison 1000 unsuccessful attempts before he was able to invent the light bulb?


Do you have any personal experiences like Edison? I mean not everyone can hit the jackpot like Mark Cuban and make $5.7 billion off of broadcast.com only 4 short years after creating it.

Please share success that you have had after failure in the comments below. This will inspire not only me but many others. Thanks!!

P.s. Here are 26 famously successful people that had failure before success: http://bit.ly/2o5MLmj

Some I heard off some I didn't. Still, it was an interesting read.

My favorite one is Colonel Sanders owner of KFC. This man did not really get his niche off the ground until he was 75 years old. He did a lot of jobs before than and had a lot of failure as well.

Now that I see Fred Astaire is on the list, I definitely have to save this post! He was one of my favorites!!! I became a fan of musicals because of him; I still become mesmorized watching his movies. Thanks, Tim!
