Even the Famous Ones Need Help

Professional Speaker-Personal Development-Positive Attitude

Did you know that…

  • Oprah Winfrey was told she was unfit for TV because she couldn’t separate her emotions from her stories.
  • Walt Disney was fired from the Kansas City Star Newspaper because he lacked imagination and had no good ideas.
  • J.K. Rowling depended on welfare to survive while trying to raise a child on her own.

So, the next time you start to beat yourself up because you feel stuck, or you haven’t come as far as you would like, know that you are not alone. There are some very powerful, successful and dynamic people who also felt like giving up. Yet, someone, something, kept them moving forward. They found a way to put one step in front of the other.

Use them as an example. Research others who have struggled and survived, then read their stories on the days when you need a little boost. Ask yourself: Who will be my anchor; what will be my safety net???

And here’s a secret: sometimes we begin to move forward when we stop, turn around, and lend a helping hand to someone who is just behind us.

      Sometimes it’s hard to remember or realize that very successful people also have challenges and struggles. When I read some of their stories, it really inspires me to never give up.
