The incidents that happened in Abraham Lincoln’s life has motivated many people to a greater extent and gave them a new hope to endure every adversity of life. He was unsuccessful in business at 21, lost legislative elections at 22, faced the untimely death of his sweetheart at 24, suffer severe nervous breakdown at 27, defeated in congressional race at 34, lost senatorial election at 45, failed to become a vice President at 47, lost senatorial election at 49,finally became the 16th President of United States of America at 52.
Abraham Lincoln’s father was a shoe maker, but Lincoln was the president of the United States, with his hard work and effort. On the first day, as Abraham Lincoln entered to give his inaugural address, one man stood up to humiliate him as the Shoe maker’s son.
“Mr. Lincoln, you should not forget that your father used to make shoes for my family.”
Abraham Lincoln was not sad, he said, “Sir, I know that my father used to make shoes in your house for your family, and there will be many others here… because the way he made shoes, nobody else can. He was a creator. His shoes were not just shoes, he poured his whole soul in it. I want to ask you, have you any complaint? Because I know how to make shoes myself; if you have any complaint I can make another pair of shoes. But as far as I know, nobody has ever complained about my father’s shoes. He was a genius, a creator, and I am proud of my father!”
It does not matter what you do. What matters is how you do it – of your own accord, with your own vision, with your own love. Then whatever you touch becomes gold.
