Those who gave up too soon-1

Recommended Posts

Do you know that Orville and Wilbur Wright (popularly called the Wright Brothers) were not actually the first that discovered the “flying miracle” (airplanes)?
The man who would have received the credit was Dr.Samuel Lanley, A professor of mathematics/astronomy. He started the project, but after running into obstacles, criticisms and financial setbacks just gave up.
But just after that, the Wright brothers who were uneducated and with insufficient funds, celebrated a breakthrough by becoming the first humans to fly a manned plane.
What was the difference? The Wright brothers had what professor Lanley lacked: PATIENCE AND RUGGED PERSISTENCE! No wonder Thomas Edison told his team: “Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.”
Winston Churchill also told his amazing soldiers: “If you are going through hell, keep going.”
