In a recent commencement speech, Mayor Gavin Newsom of San Francisco, asked the graduates, What is the secret of all success? The Mayor answered his question like this: Winston Churchill said success is moving from failure to failure with enthusiasm. After all, Churchill himself, finished last in his class. Michael Jordan was rejected from his high school basketball team. He wasn't good enough. Henry Ford, of automobile fame, you may have driven one of his cars, went bankrupt not once, but five times. Dr. Seuss of child literature fame, tried to publish "Green Eggs and Ham" not once, but twenty three times before a publisher finally gave him a chance. And Elvis Presley. He got an F in music.
