Before becoming the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln had a life filled with both failures and accomplishments that spanned 28 years.

He was fired from his previous position. The in-state legislature, He was defeated. The business was a flop. He had to say goodbye to his sweetheart. I’d had a nervous breakdown and needed to be taken to the hospital. Speaker is a no-show. Nominated for the United States Congress but was defeated. Renomination was taken away from him. The position of the land officer was rebuffed. During his Senate campaign, he was defeated.

After that, he lost a re-election bid for the United States Senate. Between 1832 and 1858, all of these events occurred.

However, he was famed for saying, “I will prepare, one day my chance will arrive,” despite his mix of tragedies and comedic achievements.

Eventually, he was elected 16th President of the United States in 1860.

The takeaway isn’t immediately apparent. However, if he had given up on his struggles as a source of preparedness, things would have been continually worse.
