Soichiro Honda is the creator of the famous Honda motorcycle engines.

His story is truly incredible and is characterized by a willpower and a decidedly out of the ordinary motivation.

In this article, you will find out how Honda came to fruition and create a motorcycle empire.

Honda history in brief

Soichiro was born in 1906 from a bicycle mechanic blacksmith, since childhood he shows a great passion e mechanical skills.

As a boy, a Honda still a student, he started a small workshop and designed the sealed segment: a small elastic ring capable of improving the mechanics of the time.

Honda presented his idea to Toyota Corporation but was turned down because its ring did not meet company standards.

Sochiro was sent back to the school he had dropped out where he was mocked by teachers and classmates.

The young Japanese did not let go and after two years of work improved his design, so much so that it was eventually bought by Toyota and started a factory in order to produce it.

With the arrival of World War II, the factory was bombed, finding himself in difficulty again, he began to collect the petrol cans thrown by enemy bombers to grab the raw materials he needed, until an earthquake razed his workshop to the ground again.

Following the war and a shortage of fuel, the Japanese moved more and more by bicycle.

It was at this point that Honda came up with the idea of ​​mounting its engine in bicycles, effectively creating the first motorized bike to which he gave the name of Honda Dream Type A: the rest is history.

Today Honda has over 179.000 employees and produces over 14 million engines a year, and coincidentally the company's motto is: The power of dreams (The power of dreams).

Never give up! Honda's lesson

Many dream of success. In my opinion, success is only achieved through repeated failures and introspection. In fact, success represents one percent of your work, which results from a ninety-nine percent called failure.

  1. Decide what you want to do. Make a decision on what you want to do, continue to grope in indecision is useless, if you think it is better to wait for the right opportunity or wait for the right moment, you are wasting your time: create the opportunities you need.
  2. Set a goal. Once you have chosen what you want to do, set a realistic, measurable and positive goal. If you don't know where to start, start with your hobby or passion, perfect what you already know, dedicate yourself to something you already like, just like Honda did.
  3. Take action. Break up your goal into small simple actions, one step at a time, day after day, you need concrete actions to avoid imagining your life, you need results, be aware of where you are starting from and where you want to arrive.
  4. Wrong. I wish you to make mistakes, make mistakes to accumulate experience, carry on only what works and creams all the functional, mistakes are part of the growth and development process, a solution when it is effective is converted into an action.
  5. Do not give up. What have you learned from Honda history? Success is largely made up of failure, don't let go, believe in your idea: continuing even when others give up is one of the secrets of success.

La history of Honda is the proven proof that believing in your dreams without giving up is really within everyone's reach, even ordinary people.

Success is 99% failure, never give up.
