Louis Pasteur, a French chemist who has probably saved the lives of millions of people through pasteurization,  was not a stranger to adversity. Pasteur was born into a poor family and did not excel at school. Pasteur failed, when trying to get his BSc degree in mathematics.  The failure did not stop Pasteur a year later he graduated with a poor degree in chemistry. After all of this Louis Pasteur went on to become a professor and father of five children. Only two of his five children survived to adulthood. Three died of Typhoid, in spite of this terrible tragedy Louis Pasteur worked harder to find cures for diseases and he was successful. Thanks to his research the medical world gained an understanding for germs and immunizations.   When many other men and women would have quit Louis Pasteur dug in his heels and fought back! Thank god he did too!

In 1992 Walt Disney founded Laugh-O-Gram Studios in Missouri. Laugh-O-Gram A year laughter Walt’s company went Bankrupt.  Walt sold his only possession, a motion picture camera, moved to Hollywood and kept on pursuing his dream.  In 2012 the DIsney company had over 73 billion dollars in assets!  The word Disney is almost worldwide, synonymous with a fun family time. Athletes who reach the pinnacle of their career  and win championships are asked what they are doing now and answer with, “I am going to Disney World.” Disney World is the Disney companies resort theme park. I would say that Walt was and is a winner. “It is good to have a failure while you are young because it teaches you so much.

For one thing it makes you aware that such a thing can happen to anybody,
And once you’ve lived through the worst,
You’re never quite as vulnerable afterwards.”
-Walt Disney
Both Walt Disney and Louis Pasteur have known failure and success. Many, many more individuals have also known failure and success. The stories are endless but all have one common thread, a tenacious will desire that compels action and kinetic energy from someone.  I am not sure how well you are doing or what you are doing but I am pretty sure you have and will fail, the secret is that if you do not stop, you have not failed. As long as you are leaning forward and learning you are a success.

We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.
