Prominent journalist Hopewell Chin’ono is celebrating his 53 rd birthday today.

Taking to social media, Chin’ono said in life people need to acknowledge that every success story starts with failure.

He says each time he failed he didn’t allow that failure to shape his life but instead used it as an opportunity to try again.

Chin’ono also emphasizes on the point that people are born with different gifts and a persons gift cannot be given to someone else and again without working on it the gift is useless.

He says its never too late to start a new life and amend mistakes even at old age.
