Hey, it’s another great day. This is Dr. Willie Jolly and today is a special Presidents Day message. Every successful person has had a failure, but they use the failure and learn from their failure and make failure their teacher rather than their undertaker. There’s a story of a man who:

  • Failed in business at the age of 21
  • Was defeated in a legislative race at the age of 22
  • Failed again in business at the age of 24
  • His sweetheart died when he was 26.
  • He had a nervous breakdown at the age of 26
  • Lost a congressional race at the age of 34
  • Lost another one at the age of 36
  • Lost a senatorial race at age 45
  • Lost in his effort to become vice president of the United States at age 47
  • Lost another senatorial race at age 49
  • And he was elected president of the United States at age 52

His name was Abraham Lincoln. Don’t let failure get you down, it’s part of the success system. Learn from your failure and use it and live your dreams.
