Don't Give Up 12/9
Monday, December 09, 2019
For the Month of December, I decided to blog each day on a ‘famous’ person who failed but never gave up. I hope everyone can use these as examples on why we should never give up on our weight loss journey and use them as a bit of inspiration to us all.
While you struggle day-in and day-out towards the fulfillment of your hopes and your dreams, know this: “If there is no struggle there is no progress.” When faced with a challenge, sometimes you have to think smarter and adjust course. But often what it takes is sheer determination and perseverance. It never hurts to be reminded that failure and rejection are minor speed bumps on the road to success.
Person 8 - Albert Einstein
Albert Einstein did not speak until he was 4-years-old and did not read until he was 7. His parents thought he was "sub-normal," and one of his teachers described him as "mentally slow, unsociable, and adrift forever in foolish dreams." He was expelled from school and was refused admittance to the Zurich Polytechnic School. He did eventually learn to speak and read. Even to do a little math.
By the age of twelve he had taught himself geometry. He won the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1921 for his work on the photoelectric effect.
