Success is Just Around the Corner
What do Nelson Mandela and Winston Churchill have in common? Mostly an incredible spirit and determination. Mandela was incarcerated for 27 years, and became president of the African National Congress in South Africa in 1991. During that time, he was sorely tested as loved ones were killed, isolation haunted him and thoughts of freedom seemed futile. And yet his indomitable spirit and faith kept him going.
Churchill, as prime minister of England during World War II, spoke to students at Harrow School saying: “Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never — in nothing, great or small, large or petty — never give in, except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy. “

But Disney had a big vision and he succeeded.

Keep your vision strong, stay positive and never ever give up.
