63 Success Stories From Famous People Who Failed Before Succeeding

"There is no FAILURE. That which looks to be failure is usually nothing but temporary defeat. Make sure that you do not accept it as PERMANENT!" - Napoleon Hill

This Napoleon Hill sets our mindset for this article. Usually people connect failure with being unsuccessful, and if you check the antonym for success indeed it is failure.

Study some of the most famous people success stories, you'll find out that before success there was huge failure, and that those same failed attempts were the starting point of something that led them to become hugely successful

The reason behind it, is that they didn't saw failure as the end of their attempts to being successful. They saw failure as a temporary defeat, that sooner of later (if they didn't stop doing what they were supposed to and got better with the process) they would be successful in the long run.

We're talking about people who failed before they succeed, proving that failure is not final. But also, don't forget that success is not permanent too, some of these people actually reached success and tasted failure after it. But they didn't get discouraged by their failure stories and reached success again!

Still not convinced?, To motivate you to succeed when the thought of failure strikes you, we've selected 63 success stories of famous people who met failure but saw it as temporary defeat, didn't stopped, and went on to succeed:
