Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill, KG, OM, CH, TD, FRS, PC (30 November 1874 – 24 January 1965) was a British politician and author, best known as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom during the Second World War.

Churchill was famous for his stubborn resistance to Hitler during the darkest hours of the Second World War.

Winston was born at Blenheim Palace, Woodstock near Oxford to an aristocratic family – the Dukes of Marlborough. He was brought up by servants and friends of the family. He rarely spoke to his father and his mother rarely saw him when at boarding school. Churchill went to Harrow school. He wasn’t the best student, having a rebellious nature and slow to learn; but Churchill excelled at sports and joined the officer cadet corps, which he enjoyed.

David Beckham.... I would guess that 99.9% of you know who this is.... This is because he is not just a football player who has played at the highest standard, but he is a brand. He has created an empire through his name..... Starting from humble beginnings he left school at 16 and come up through the ranks at Manchester United and by the age of 20 was a main player..... He is also heavily involved in charities across the world and has made football popular in the U.S. with a $250 million dollar deal toL.A. Galaxy

Amazingly the man who was to become arguably the best basketball player of all time was rejected by his own high schools basketball team.

“I have missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I have lost almost 300 games. On 26 occasions I have been entrusted to take the game winning shot, and I missed. I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” - Michael Jordan

Ashley Paul - 'Michael shows an un-rare trait that humans don’t usually tap into. This is consistently leaving his comfort zone day in day out. He shows himself to be a man of pride, even through his failed shots he kept his head held high till he got it right. He never allowed other people's negativity to inflict on his positivity!'
