The Story Behind The Eiffel Tower

“If you don’t stick to your values when they are being tested, they’re not values, they’re hobbies.” Job Stewart. The greatest pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do. The story of Alexandra Eiffel is didactic.

The Eiffel Tower is one of the most recognizable landmarks on the planet. Built as the grand entrance to an 1889 world trade fair, the tower receives thousands of visitors every year and is a favorite spot for romantic rendezvous.

We, the writers, painters, sculptors, architects and lovers of the beauty of Paris, do protest with all our vigor and all our indignation, in the name of French taste and endangered French art and history, against the useless and monstrous Eiffel Tower.

But when it was built there was ferocious opposition. A group of leading artists and writers, including the author of “The Three Musketeers”, Alexander Dumays, filed a petition that read:

History vindicated Alexandre Eiffel. In 1889 he was roundly condemned. Today he is praised. His story shows us that what matters is not the opinions others have of us and what we do – these will change according to what is culturally fashionable – but holding onto what we believe to be the values and wisdom of God.

“My father taught my siblings and me the importance of positive values and a strong ethical compass. He showed us how to be resilient, how to deal with challenges, and how to strive for excellence in all that we do. He taught us that there’s nothing that we cannot accomplish if we marry vision and passion with an enduring work ethic.” Ivanka Trump.

Inculcate the right moral values and stay on the right part no matter what challenges you. Winning means you’re willing to go longer, and give more than anyone else. You can cross the hurdles if you put set your mind on the goals. Yes, you’re winning!

Yes, We Are Winning…WeCEEEyou!
