Abraham Lincoln was born in 1809 in Kentucky into extreme poverty but eventually became President of America. During the American Civil War Lincoln gave the now famous Gettysburg Address and his decision to appoint General Ulysses S. Grant as Commander-in-Chief of the Northern Armies was probably one of the significant turning points of the war. Although it cost him his life, he was fanatical that slavery should be abolished in his country. Lincoln was assassinated In Washington on 14th April 1865.
Throughout his life, his most striking characteristic was his determination to succeed in the face of continuing failure. Consider the following:
1831 - Failed in Business
1832 - Ran for State Legislature and LOST
1832 - Lost his job
1833 - Went bankrupt and took 17 years to pay off a debt
1835 - Sweetheart died
1836 - Had a nervous breakdown
1838 - Defeated in his attempt to become speaker of the state legislature
1840 - Defeated in his attempt to become elector
1843 - Ran for Congress and LOST
1848 - After successfully running for Congress he LOST when seeking re-election
1849 - Rejected in his application for the job of Land Officer in his home state
1854 - Ran for the Senate of the United States and LOST
1856 - Sought Vice-Presidential nomination and only got 100 votes
Despite all of these setbacks Abraham Lincoln was still elected President of the United States in 1860. Even in the face of adversity, it pays to keep on going. Failure is guaranteed if you stop trying.
