Determination leads to success

There was a man who failed in business at the age of 31. He was defeated for the legislature at 32. Failed in business again at 34 .Lost his beloved at 35. He had a nervous break down at 36. Lost the elections yet again at 38. He lost the elections for congress at 46. Lost again in another congress at 49. Accepted defeat for the Senate at 55. Was beaten in the race for vice-president at 56. Was again defeated for Senate at 58.But was elected the president of the US at the age of 60.

That man was Abraham Lincoln. Possess firm determination and this determination will surely lead you to success one day.
