In the Imitation Game, the one friend that Alan Turing had in the world spoke those words to him. Alan Turning was a mathematical genius on the level of Einstein in his field, and invented the Turning Machines…the foundational computer of the Computer Age.
Speaking of Einstein, Albert Einstein was considered too dumb for school. He failed math. His teachers considered him mentally handicapped. He did not speak until the age of 4. Today, he would have been identified as being on the Autistic Spectrum. He got a dead end job at the U.S. Patent Office doing a job lacking challenge of any kind. It was perfect for him. His mind was free to create, and the world got E=mc2, The Theory of Relativity.
J. K. Rowling was a single mother who wrote Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone on a manual typewriter in coffee shops, trying to stay warm as she wrote as the heat in her flat was unreliable. The book was rejected by twelve publishers as their world view did not include profitability in the publishing of children’s books. She is now richer and more famous than the Queen of England.
Harland David Sanders drove from town to town talking to restaurant owners all over America, cooking up his own recipe for fried chicken. Everyone LOVED it, but when he offered to give them the recipe in exchange for a nickel a serving, 1009 restaurant owners declined the offer. Harland was virtually bankrupt before he got his first ‘Yes’, and Kentucky Fried Chicken was born.
Walt Disney’s first animation company went bankrupt, but he would not give up on ‘the mouse’. He was fired from a position as the editor for a newspaper because he lacked imagination. He conceived of Disney World and became the Pitch Man for the project. 302 financiers and/or financial institutions told him ‘No way, Jose’ before someone caught his vision.
Mark Januszewski failed at network marketing with 6 different companies before he was taught that it’s SKILLS, not product or compensation plan. He went on to become one of the top earners in several companies, never taking anyone with him when he started anew. Then he lost it all. Realizing his passion was teaching, he and his wife, the Fabulous Davene, created the Master Key Mastermind Experience, and in less than two years, they went from bankrupt in New England to Beachfront in Kauai. The MKMMA Live event starts next week, and it has created so much ‘Buzz’ that Channel 14 News carried a story about it.
