From the black pot always come the white pap. From the depth of the disgusting soil comes the gold. Some of the greatest men in history were born premature, yet they went on in life to become something great.
Men like Charles Darwin, the French philosopher Renan, the great military leader Napoleon, Isaac Newton, and Voltaire, to mention a few.

Where you came from, the family you were born into and your present state are not a function of who or what you will be tomorrow. It is not your fault that you are born poor, but it can be your fault that you die poor. You have no
excuse for failure in life, as nobody is even ready to listen to you. Who you are today is not a function of what you will be tomorrow. Being among the least today doesn’t affirm that that you will be among them forever. All you need to do is to believe in yourself, be diligent and consistent, and be faithful in your prayers.

Check Charles Darwin: his father called him an “absolute GOOD FOR NOTHING” because he didn’t take to his father’s choice of profession (Medicine). Today he is known around the world as a great scientist and the father of the theory of evolution

Check Albert Einstein: he did not speak until he was four years old and he didn’t read until he was seven (he was a very slow learner). His teacher described him as “MENTALLY SLOW, UNSOCIABLE AND FULL OF FOOLISH DREAMS THAT WILL MAKE HIM AMOUNT TO NOTHING IN LIFE”. He was expelled and refused admittance to Zurich Polytechnic School. The University of Bern turned down his Ph.D. dissertation as being irrelevant and fanciful. He went on in life to become a great physicist who developed the general theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics.

Check Louis Pasteur: he was only a mediocre pupil in undergraduate studies. A student of below average ability. He ranked 15 out of 22 in chemistry, but today he is well known as a great chemist and microbiologist with remarkable breakthroughs in the causes and prevention of diseases.
Check out Thomas Edison: at six years of age, he was sent home from school with a note saying he was too stupid to learn but his mother believed God gave her a unique child, who will one day bless the world with his talent. Thomas went on in life to become a great inventor with over 1099 inventions ascribed to his name; such as the motion picture, camera, the phonograph and the electric bulb.

Check out Winston Churchill: his teacher expelled him from his Latin class because he was too slow in understanding Latin, but Churchill resolved to excel in English Language where he was doing well. He became an English historian and one of Britain’s famous Prime ministers

NOTE: people’s opinion about you is not God’s Conclusion on your destiny.
According to a recent research of successful people in America, 50% of the CEOs of fortune 500 companies, when they were in college, made Cs or less as an average. Over 50% of the entrepreneur millionaires in America today graduated from college. 75% of the presidents of the United States were in the lower half of their class.

What separated them from others were not due to their family background, or their intelligence or their skin colour, but they chose to be positive minded, consistent and diligent. They inculcate into their lives a winning attitude and they possessed incessant passion for what they do.  They did not give up on themselves when others did.
