    A small boy - the fifth amongst seven siblings of a
    poor father, was selling newspapers in a small village
    to earn his living. He was not exceptionally smart at
    school but was fascinated by religion and rockets.
    The first rocket he built crashed. A missile that
    he built crashed multiple times and he was made
    a butt of ridicule.
    He is the person to have scripted the Space Odyssey
    of <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:smarttags" /><st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">India</st1:place></st1:country-region> single-handedly Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam.
    In 1962, four nervous young musicians played their
    first record audition forthe executives of the Decca
    recording Company.
    The executives were not impressed. While turning
    down this group of musicians, one executive said,
    "We don't like their sound. Groups of guitars are
    on the way out."
    The group was called The Beatles.
    In 1944, Emmeline Snively, director of the Blue Book
    Modelling Agency told modelling hopeful Norma Jean
    Baker, "You'd better learn secretarial work or else
    Get married."
    She went on and became Marilyn Monroe.
    In 1954, Jimmy Denny, manager of the Grand Ole
    Opry, Fired a singer after one performance.
    He told him, "You ain't goin' nowhere....son. You
    ought to go back to drivin' a truck."
    He went on to become Elvis Presley.

    In the 1940s, another young inventor named <st1:City w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Chester</st1:place></st1:City>
    Carlson took his idea to 20 corporations, including
    Some of the biggest in the country.
    They all turned him down. In 1947 after seven long
    Years of rejections!
    He finally got a tiny company in <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:City w:st="on">Rochester</st1:City>, <st1:State w:st="on">New York</st1:State></st1:place>,
    the Haloid company, to purchase the rights to his
    invention an electrostatic paper-copying process.
    Haloid became Xerox Corporation.

    A little girl - the 20th of 22 children, was born
    Prematurely and her survival was doubtful. When she was 4 years
    old, she contracted double pneumonia and scarlet fever,
    which left her with a paralysed left leg. At age 9, she
    removed the metal leg brace she had been dependent on
    and began to walk without it.By 13 she had developed a
    rhythmic walk, which doctors said was a miracle.
    That same year she decided to become a runner.
    She entered a race and came in last.
    For the next few years every race she entered, she
    came in last.Everyone told her to quit, but she kept
    on running. One day she actually won a race. And then another.
    From then on she won every race she entered.
    Eventually this little girl - Wilma Rudolph, went on
    to win three Olympic gold medals.

    A school teacher scolded a boy for not paying
    attention to his mathematics and for not being able to solve simple
    problems. She told him that you would not become anybody in
    The boy went on to become Albert Einstein.

    Interesting read. Thanks for sharing.

    It is not easy to continue doing what you want to do, while facing rejections. But as per the saying "Tough Times Never Last - But, Tough People Do". So be Tough !
