Believe in yourself !!

So have you tried something and you have failed?? May be numerous times. You may have been told you have no talent, aren't cut out for "this business" or are never going to "make it in this line of work".

Well don't be discouraged. The following are stories of people who were told the same thing or something similar and went on to be major successes!

You might just recognize a few:
