Sometimes the very saddening traumas people go through become their main drive to transform their lives and pursue a successful life path. Stories of successful people who were once the subject of traumatized experiences in their past and came out of it stronger abounds. From Eistein’s dejected childhood to Thomas Edison’s repeated failures, the list of successful people who have turned their weaknesses into strengths is huge. Such stories bring hope and optimism and communicate one single message that no matter how hard the setbacks and obstacles facing you in life you should never give up.
