Winston Churchill‘s father rejected him and told him he would never amount to anything. 

Many of us would take this as an excuse to give in, a reason to label ourselves as a failure. 

Churchill had a “speech impediment” which he consistently worked to overcome.
 
Winston Churchill never gave up!!!!!!!! 

Where would he be today if he had believed his father and allowed that degrading mindset affect him?

Are you giving others the power?   If so, take it back!
