Crisis brings opportunities. Therefore, it is essential to understand what you can learn from your failures and implement in your present to make your future better. As your failures can help you to become a better person and learn. Without improving yourself and having a firm determination, it is difficult to find success.

A similar story is that of Bollywood Superstar Amitabh Bachchan who is known for his superb acting skills. The Shahanshah of Bollywood wanted to become an actor but was rejected by filmmakers simply because of his tall height and looks, which became his USP later. He then tried his luck to become a Radio Jockey in All India Radio but he was rejected due to his heavy voice. Life was hard for him but he never gave up.

He went through a long struggle until he got a role in the movie 'Saat Hindustani' that that too flopped. His life took a turn for better when he acted in the movie 'Zanzeer', which became a huge success. Still, he went bankrupt and was going through tough time until he got a break in an Indian TV game show 'Kaun Banega Crorepati' and the rest is history.

If Amitabh Bachchan would have given up on his dream, the Bollywood would have never witnessed such a superstar. He took criticism positively and worked hard until he achieved his goals.

Also, the story of Walt Disney will inspire you to believe in yourself. Determined to become an artist he had to face disagreement from his father. Walt Disney joined an advertising company after completing his college degree but he lost his job as his boss thought he was not creative enough to work in that company.

Though there was a time when people mocked on the idea of Walt Disney of having an animation studio, today the same studio is worldwide popular and a huge success.
