J.K Rowling - Secret of Success

My favorite motivational words from J.K Rowling, the author of Harry Potter “It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all—in which case, you fail by default."

The author didn’t miraculously become richer than the Queen of England overnight. Despite of her divorce and raising a child on her own, she wrote the first Harry Potter book on an old manual typewriter.

Twelve publishers rejected the manuscript!!

A year later she was given the green light by Barry Cunningham from Bloomsbury, who agreed to publish the book but insisted she get a day job cause there was no money in children’s books.

What if she stopped at the first rejection? The fifth? Or the tenth?
The measure of success can be shown by how many times someone keeps going despite hearing only no. Lets take a pledge that we will succeeded despite failure and rejection.
