“Don’t worry about failures; worry about the chances you miss when you don’t even try.”
Jack Canfield had a dream. He and co-author Mark Victor Hansen, both motivational speakers, compiled true inspirational stories from people in their audiences. They put these stories in a manuscript, called it Chicken Soup for the Soul, and sent it out to publishers.
They were rejected 144 times before a small publisher gave them a contract.
Imagine if they stopped after 10, 40, 80, 120 rejections.
Imagine if they let their failures dictate their lives.
They knew the true failure would be to not keep trying.
Even after they got a publishing contract, they marketed and marketed and marketed. They not only didn’t let failure stop them, they actively make their dream come true.
So, whether you’re a writer, an author, a marketer, or other, take actions steps, even if they’re small ones . . . and persevere.
