If at First You Don’t Succeed Get Inspired!
Cha Sa-soon, of Seoul, South Korea, is the poster child for inspiring motivation and determination - she never gives up.
This 68-year-old woman has failed her driving test 775 times during the last four years, but is determined to succeed.
"I believe you can achieve your goal if you persistently pursue it," she says. "So don't give up your dream. Like me, be strong and do your best."
"I've looked up some guidebooks to get a driver's license, and they were saying it takes at most five years to get this," Cha added.
Cha has already spent 10 million won, or $6,800 US, on driving test applications, so she can buy a truck and start her own business. She already knows that Seoul has one of the so-called 'tiger economies' of the Pacific Rim, and she wants to cash in on the booming market and sell sea pineapples to a Tokyo fish market.
Rumor has it that she has a crush on Andrew Zimmern of Bizarre Foods fame.
I think she should also get a ghost writer and produce a “Behind Every Great Idea is a Motivated Senior” inspirational booklet.
