 *LESSON:* Struggling is a sign that you are on a verge of success. Don't quit yet. 

2. *Oprah Winfrey said,* "I was raped at the age of 9 yet I am one of the most influential women in the World." 

 *LESSON:* Don't let your past decide your future.

3. *Bill Gates said,*       "I didn't even complete my university education but became the world's richest man." 

 *LESSON:* School does not make you rich. School is only supposed to polish what will make you rich, not make you rich.

4. *Joyce Meyer said & I quote,* "I was sexually, mentally, emotionally and verbally abused by my father as far back as I can remember, until I left home at the age of eighteen, yet I am one of the most influential preachers in the world." 

 *LESSON:* Let your past push you, not define or limit you.

5. *Christiano Ronaldo said,* "I told my father that we would be very rich but he couldn't believe me. I made it a reality." 

 *LESSON:* Your words rule your life. If you mean what you have said, each word will come to pass. You get what you say. 

6. *Hear Lionel Messi!,* "I used to serve tea at a shop to support my football training and still became one of the world's best footballers."

 *LESSON:* Believe in your dream. Don't let your pain tell you how your future will look like. 

7. *Steve Jobs penned,* "I used to sleep on the floor in my friends' rooms, returning coke bottles for food, money, and getting weekly free meals at a local temple, I later on founded Apple Company."

 *LESSON:* Don't let someone else's opinions of you become your reality.

9. *Bishop David Oyedepo said,* "I started Living Faith Church from a lawn tennis court with three members only & preached prosperity. Many of my friends criticised me, but today we have the largest church auditorium in the world & two world-class universities."
 
 *LESSON:* Believe in yourself even if no one does & never think of quitting.

10. *Nelson Mandela said,* "I was in prison for 27 years & still became president."

12. *Harland Sanders, Founder of KFC said,* "I was on the verge of suicide when an Idea of opening a restaurant hit me after I retired as a cook in the Navy."

*LESSON:* Nothing is ever too late. "Too late" is a language of failures. Your future can begin at any age. Don't ever let AGE limit you.

13. *Aliko Dangote said,* "I worked for my uncle since I was a small boy, people looked down on me. I later on took a loan from my uncle to open a tiny shop. I worked hard to make ends meet. Now I am the richest Man in Africa.

 *LESSON:* Failures or limitations of the past have no control over the greatness in you. To him that believes, all things are possible.

14. *Barack Hussein Obama said,* I am a son of a black immigrant from Kenya, I graduated from Harvard and later on became a Senator in Chicago. I was also the President of the most powerful nation on Earth.

 *LESSON:* Never design your life like a garden where anyone can walk in and out. Design it like the sky where everyone aspires to reach!

15. *Arnold Swarzzenegger said,* I traveled to America in search of financial independence when I was 15yrs old. I became the world's strongest man 7 times and Mr Universe. I then got my Economics degree, then I became one of Hollywood's best actors before I was voted twice as governor of California."

*LESSON:* Don't wait for everybody to believe in your ability and dreams.
