Success out of Failure Part 2

Abraham Lincoln had many failures prior to him becoming our President of the United States in 1860. Lets go over some of his failures,

1832 He lost his job and was defeated for State Legislature

1833 His business failed

1835 His sweetheart died

1836 He had a nervous breakdown

1838 He was defeated for speaker

1843 He was defeated for nomination for Congress

1848 He lost renomination for Congress

1849 He was rejected for a land offer

1854 and 1858 He was defeated for US Senate

1856 He was defeated for nomination to Vice President

Just think if any of those times he would have given up. Paul said to press on towards the goal, to have perseverance. Today don't let any setbacks or failures you have had keep you from your goal and destiny. Press On!!
