These people used to be ordinary working individuals with an extra zest in life coated with exceptional and extraordinary talent. If not for being booted from their job, they wouldn’t have the courage the stray away from that stage and embrace the challenge. You can say that getting fired was best thing that ever happened to them.
1. Steve Jobs
The famous Apple co-fonder which he started from his garage got fired from his own company – Apple. Due to conflicting views where the company should be headed, the board of directors voted to terminate him. It was devastating for Steve at that time but he considered it as a good thing as he went on to create NeXT and Pixar.
