Nicknamed “Sparky” as a kid, Charles M. Schulz, later became one of the greatest American cartoonists of our day.
It’s hard to believe that the creator of the lovable Charlie Brown and the renowned “Peanuts” comic strip was ever anything less than an amazing creative guru. But like Walt Disney, Michael Jordan, and many of the “greats” we put on a pedestal, Schulz’s success was born much more out of a refusal to accept failure than it was sheer talent.
In fact, his whole life had practically been marked by mediocrity and failure. Amidst other severe shortcomings in his academic career, Sparky actually managed to fail EVERY single subject his 8th-grade year.
Throughout his youth, he was quite the social outcast who many deemed a “loser.”
But Schulz’s will to overcome launched him into an inspiring success story that is sure to encourage anyone who feels like they may not have the chops or talents to be truly great in this world.
With perseverance, a little faith, and a lot of determination, the perceived “impossible” is always within your reach.
There’s a way out for everyone. Don’t give up! 👍
