The hardships that shape a wonderful character
We want it all, everything easy, getting rich overnight, or seeing our dreams happening overnight. But what's the beauty of hardships? The beauty of the hardships is that it shape's a strong character. It's something where I love to write about because I want to motivate everybody, and to make everyone realise that nothing is impossible. So for everyone who is going through a hard time. I want to go through some success stories of people who thought that their life was absolutely going down the drain, that their dreams were never gonna happen.

So, nothing is impossible also if you are going through hardships, the fact is that you have a dream! You have a goal, So don't let anybody tell you that it will never happen for you,
So while reading this you might ask, Angelo why are you sharing this with us, what's the purpose behind the story? Well I want to inspire you because I see so many people come up with reasons, ''it's never gonna happen because'' '' This is not for me because'' '' no I am a .... so that is the reason I never gonna be a'' and this and that, and so many excuses to not be the next success story. I believe that also on this site, there are some success stories hiding, And I'm curious what will happen if you are really going to shine?
Albert Einstein was a famous failure, he didn't speak until he was 4 years old. He did so bad in college, He almost didn't graduate when his father died he considered his son to be a major failure which left Einstein heartbroken. He has a divorce and had to take odd jobs, like being a substitute teacher,and a lowly patient clerk. He suffered from depression and anxiety. Being Jewish he and his family had to flee Germany before world war 2. Einstein knew failure and struggles. I'm sure it was hard for him to find the energy, the time, the money to keep pushing forward.
People laughed at him, they called him a dreamer. He had great excuses, he had reasons to give up, he could have stopped trying.
But he didn't, instead he changed the whole world and it will never be the same, he had the skill, the knowledge, the motivation, the willpower the discipline to keep moving forward. He didn't let anyone stop him.
He developed several fundamental core laws governing physics.
And why am I sharing this with you, is to encourage you and to empower you. Especially in these time's and to say that if you want to achieve something you can absolutely do it.
I thought it would be interesting to share this, because so many people think that the grass is greener at the other side, but it's not. Everybody has a story, and everybody put in the efforts to get where they are today.
I hope to share more posts with you that add some value, to your personal life, or to what you want to achieve.
I'll be sharing more posts, and I hope that the posts that I'm going to write add value to your personal life.
I hope that you'll be the next success story!
Don't give up!
