Learn To Love Failure *interesting*

I got this email from a friend, thought it was interesting sharing it with you guys
here goes:

Learn To Love Failure

In 1962, four nervous young musicians played their first record
audition for the executive of the Decca Recording Company. The executives were not impressed. While turning this group of musicians, one executive said "we do not like their sound, groups on guitars are on the way out." The group was called The Beatles.

In 1944, Emmeline Snively, developer 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 performer
after one performance. "you aint goin nowhere son...you ought to go back
to drivin' a truck. He went on to became the most popular singer in America named Elvis Presley.

When Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone in 1876, it did not
ring off the hook with calls from potential backers. After making a
demonstration call, President Rutherford Hayes said, "that's an amazing
invention, but who would ever want to use them?"

When Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, he tried over 2000
experiments before he got it to work. A reporter asked him how it felt to fail so many times.He said "I never failed once. I invented the light bulb and it just happened to be a 2000 step process."

In the 1940's, another young inventor named Chester 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 Rochester New york, the Haloid Company, to purchase the rights to his invention on electrostatic paper copying process. Haloid became Xerox Corporation we know today.

Wilma Rudolph was the 20th of 22 children. She was born prematurely and
her survival was doubtful. When she was four years old, she had double
pneumonia and scarlet fever, which left her with a paralyzed left leg.
At age 9, she removed the metal leg brace she had been dependent on and began to walk without it. 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.Eventually this girl who was told she could never walk again, went on to win three Olympic gold medals.


interesting!

And there's the one about the inventor of a propery trading board game that no game company would touch - they all said it was too complicated. The man stared producing it himself. Monopoly became one of the biggest selling board games in the world.

The first post from this thread is too long and I don't have time to read it. Can you make a resume for me, so I could enjoy it too? :-?
