Isaac Newton is known for his brilliance and his discoveries in the field of science. However, his life wasn’t always filled with so much success. He had an awful homelife; when he was just three, his mother left him with his grandmother to marry a wealthy elderly man, and came back eight years later after the man died–with three more children.
He also did badly in school and failed miserably at running the family farm. However, his uncle sent him to Cambridge, where he flourished and became the brilliant man we all knew today.
Even if things seem hopeless, you may not have found your passion yet. Chase after that passion, and have faith in yourself. Even if things aren’t going so well now, who knows…an apple could hit you on the head and change everything!
