Abraham Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln was born 1902 and when he was 9 years old, his mother died. He received no more than 5 years of formal education throughout his lifetime. When he grew up, he joined politics and lost eight elections, failed in business many times, and suffered a nervous breakdown. He could have quit many times, but he didn’t. Instead, after each defeat he would pick himself up and press forward until he achieved his aspirations. He had 12 major failures before he was elected the 16th President of the United States of America.

The story of Abraham Lincoln persistance is really compelling. He faced countless defeats in his lifetime but never gave up on his dreams.

You can get everything you want in life….

In life, you can get practically everything you want, if only you help enough people to get what they want.

We can get rich just focusing on giving people what they want, what they need and solving their problems.

Here is an interesting story…

A man was given a tour of both Heaven and Hell. At first glance, the scene was identical in both places. The inhabitants were seated at the sumptuous banquet table, with forks and knives strapped to their hands. Nonetheless, the inhabitants of hell looked dull and listless and were literally skin and bones. The the man noticed that the forks and knives had four foot handles which made it impossible to eat.


However with the same forks and knives, the inhabitants of Heaven were well fed and in excellent health. How could such similar circumstances produce such different results? Each person in Heaven was feeding the one across the table from him! By helping one another they helped themselves.
