Rising from Nothin

Rising From Nothing

How do you see the successful? Do you assume that the successful are the ones with the best family background, the best education, the most popular or the prettiest?

Success depends on a very large scale on your determination to not be deterred, to never give up and to strongly believe in yourself. Very few special individuals obtain them all. Those individuals are today's celebs! They are the people who rose from nothing. Most of them come from intolerable backgrounds and had suffered through out their childhood. Some were victims of abuse others were shockingly ugly too dumb and the rest were poor-stricken. The ones who believed that nothing is worth living for turned to become wild dreamers. How can and ugly dream to be the worlds sexiest female? How can the poor dream being one of the richest? And how can the homeless dream living in a million dollar mansion? Those people who were told hopeless and ridiculous are now the world's wealthiest celebs. Tales of success differ but the one thing they all shared was their deep certainty that they will make it through. They were constantly degraded disbelieved in and rejected, they had all reasons to renounce and yet never did. It often happens that some of us wish for things that sounds too impossible, too wild or too unrealistic. The feeling of having dreams that seems to be uncatchable makes few dreamers discontinue believing. They start limiting themselves, they set boundaries to what they aspire. Your dream is a wish from your heart keep yearning to attain it even if it sounds too crazy!

"Set out each day believing in your dreams. Know without a doubt that you were made for amazing things." Josh Hinds

their belief is my only explanation to why these people have reached the stars, they believed in themselves when no one did, they ran towards their fear, and despite being in the lowest rank they were dreamers of great dreams. Success didn’t come accidentally it happened by deliberate planning and hard work. They didn’t out of the blue become millionaires they intentionally planned for it.

"Went to school in Celeste until the eighth grade, dropped out to help and support this family. He was orphaned at the age of 16 found a job as a clerk and garage attendant." In 1995 Eddie Murphy was voted the most popular western American actor

" Arrived with her mother to California, were homeless and lived in their car for a long period of time" Hilary Swank, in 1999 won two Oscars for best actress in Boys don’t cry & million dollar baby.

In 1962, four young musicians played their first record audition for the executives of the Decca recording Company. The executives were not impressed. While turning down this group of musicians, one executive said, "We don't like their sound. Groups of guitars are on the way out."

They were nervous, fearful and not too confident, but they didn’t stop. They went on anyway. And even though they got rejected, they persevered till they reached the mountain top. The group was called The Beatles.

In 1944, director of the Blue Book Modeling Agency told Norma Jean Baker, "You'd better learn secretarial work or else get married. And in 1947, after one year into her contract was dropped by 20th Century-Fox; her producer thought she was unattractive and cannot act." It was proved that this girl wasn’t pretty at all, but she didn’t let her beauty problem stop her, she didn’t FEAR it. She went on and became Marilyn Monroe.

In 1954, Jimmy Denny, manager of the Grand Ole Opry, Fired a singer after one performance. He told him, "You ain't goin' nowhere....son. You ought to go back to drivin' a truck."

He destroyed every barrier just to reach where he wanted; he smashed fear by his invincible will and unbreakable strength. He went on to become the most popular singer in America named Elvis Presley. He didn’t dream it, he chased it.

"was a youngster extremely poor, lived in a van with his family, and battled depression." He is now a globally recognized actor with one of the most successful careers in Hollywood. He has won and been nominated in countless awards, including a nomination for best performance in a leading role in Eternal Sunshine Of the Spotless mind, as well as winning two golden globe awards for his role in Man on the Moon, Jim Carrey.

"Grew up poor came from a wrecked home was dyslexic and subjected to constant child abuse by his father" Tom Cruise has been nominated for 3 Academy Award and 3 Golden Globe Award. Almost every film he has starred in has achieved blockbuster status, with box office revenues totaling $100-million or more in the U.S. Forbes magazine ranked him as the world's most powerful celebrity.

"Was raised with her religious and inadequate grandmother in a farm, she's been sexually abused by relatives. at the age of 14 she gave birth to a premature baby who quickly passed away" she has been ranked the richest African American of the 20th century and was ranked the worlds only black millionaire, Oprah Winfrey"

He was constantly underestimated and criticized by his mixed race, but he took his mother's words at heart "you can never change what people think of you, you can only change what you think of yourself", he worked hard & became the world's best golfer, Tiger Woods. Now his confidence and assurance are the most obvious things in his personality, he truly deemed in himself and thought highly of the qualities he possess till he ended up reaching the height of his dreams.

They were practically nothing and now they conquered the world. People from different races different regions and different classes are all aware of such great people. With their faith and hard word they have amazed. They will always remain icons and time will always be a testament of their greatness.
