Can you believe that Walt Disney was once fired from a newspaper because he “lacked imagination?”

Or that Michael Jordan was cut from his 10th grade varsity basketball team because “he wasn’t good enough?”

Then there’s Oprah. She was once demoted from her job as a news anchor because she “wasn’t fit for television.”

Even the Beatles didn’t have a great start. They were rejected from a recording studio because they “had no future in show business.”

And let’s not forget about J.K. Rowling. Harry Potter was rejected by countless publishing companies because the book just “couldn’t have an impact.”

What adversity are you currently facing as you move forward with your dreams and goals? Whatever it is, don’t allow it to keep you from achieving success.

Everyone you admire has a story to tell. At some point in everyone’s life, they have failed, been rejected, made a mistake, or faced a difficult circumstance. However, we remember the ones who go on to achieve greatness despite what life throws at them.

Write your own story. NEVER GIVE UP!

Have a great rest of the week!
