The hope of when all seems lost rises again in the darkness of despair and the fear of not making it.

When willpower seems to be lacking, I always think back to Abraham Lincoln’s life. A formidable example of tenacity. He never gave up even when everything seemed to be conspiring against him.
He was born in misery, and his life was always hard, marked by constant defeats. He lost eight elections, failed twice in business. He had a nervous breakdown.
He could have quit, but he never did, never. He eventually became one of the greatest presidents in the history of the United States. It is a beautiful example of how you never give up.
The dates that mark the path of his life:
1816 – His family is evicted. He must work to support them.
1818 – His mother dies.
1831 – She fails in business.
1832 – He runs for state parliament: defeated.
1832 – He also loses his job: he wants to enter the law school but is not admitted.
1833 – Borrows money from a friend to start a business and, at the end of the year, is already bankrupt. He will spend the next seventeen years of his life repaying the debt.
1834 – He runs for state parliament: elected.
1835 – He gets engaged, but his betrothed dies.
1836 – He has a severe nervous breakdown and remains in bed for six months.
1838 – He tries to become a delegate voter, but is defeated.
1843 – He runs for the U.S. Congress. He is defeated.
1846 – He runs for Congress again, gets elected, goes to Washington and does a good job.
1848 – He runs for re-election to Congress: defeated.
1849 – Applies to become a state administrator of his state. He is rejected.
1854 – He runs for U.S. Senate, defeated.
1856 – He seeks candidacy for his party’s national congress vice-president. Gets less than a hundred votes.
1858 – Running again for U.S. Senate. Again defeated.
1860 – Elected President of the United States. #lincoln

Cogito Ergo Sum I am a young man with plenty of determination and motivation. After high school in my village, I decided to move to the university of law in Sassari. After two years, I realized that it was not for me, and I went to London to improve my English and make a new job and life experience. It was great working in the best hotels and restaurants in Central London (Mayfair and Knightsbridge ). I started reading a lot making myself curious about the World and the People. Journalism, soon became my passion for sharing my idea and knowledge to the most famous and richest customers in London. I come back to Italy to spread my knowledge to my family and friends. For the next future, I see my self successful Blogging and in Hospitality with the passion of theatre. I hope to meet all of you, signing an autograph and shaking hands-off in a sign of respect. All the best of luck Yours, Fabio
