I know you're determined.
You can do this.
Take that first step.
Don't ever let anyone tell you that you can't make your dreams come true!
Here are a few people who were told they didn't have what it takes:
- Elvis Presley was told he wouldn't get anywhere in the music business and that he go back to driving a truck.
- Dustin Hoffman was voted by his class as least likely to succeed.
- Harrison Ford was told by movie execs that he didn't have what it took to be a movie star.
- Abraham Lincoln ran for Congress and vice presidency at least SIX times before becoming President of the United States.
- Henry Ford's business failed several times before he became successful.
- Dr. Seuss was told his work was too different.
- Beatrix Potter was turned down so many times she evidently self-published The Tale of Peter Rabbit.
- Elana Johnson sent out over 180 queries before she landed an agent.
It seems like, by the examples above, that to make a success we have to fail.
Surround yourself with people who will elevate you. People you trust. Listen to them.
Send out those queries. Get that chapter done.
You have a story inside that is amazing and can only come from you.
Hurry. The world is waiting.
Do you know any other stories of failure turned success?
