Winston Churchill

Winston Churchill was a British statesman who served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945, during the Second World War, and again from 1951 to 1955. He is often credited with several very popular quotes about failure such as “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts,” and, “Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.” .These are phrases from his life experience. His success didn’t happen overnight. He went through a lot of struggles and hardships before making it to success.

Winston Churchill’s early struggles

Winston Churchill failed many times in life. He first failed in sixth grade. Churchill’s early political career was tumultuous. He was defeated in every election for public office. This until he finally became the Prime Minister at the age of 62. During Churchill’s political career, he made numerous decisions that would turn into failures. He lost a total of 5 elections, including his very first one. This included three elections in a row during the years of 1922 through 1924. Throughout his life, he battled clinical depression. He also had a severe lateral lisp, and had trouble speaking making speeches at times, having dentures manufactured to help repair the impediments his speech caused.

Winston Churchill went through a lot of failures and difficulties yet he was very persistent and never chose to give up in life. In 1893, Churchill applied to attend the Royal Military College in Sandhurst. He failed that exam 2 times, and on the third try, he succeeded. This only after changing from the infantry division to the cavalry division, which had a lower threshold for entrance. However, he excelled during his tenure there. In the First World War, he led the troop who invaded Turkey in order to establish a southern link with Russia. This resulted into a complete failure and loss of many young soldiers from Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, ANZAC.
