Can you imagine the tenacity and unwavering belief in self it would take to continue to pound on doors after your work was rejected by 30 different companies? If Stephen King didn’t have the spiritual fortitude to push forward after all those doors were closed in his face we wouldn’t have had the pleasure of reading his massively popular best-sellers. Consider how much more consuming the face to face rejections would have been back then when he was trying to get recognized. There wasn’t the typical and more gentle negative feedback through email in which most people would now be use to. We are talking about real hard hitting rejections that I myself try my very best to avoid on a regular basis due to the impact it has on my worthiness.
It just goes to show how many people can be wrong about something. If you truly believe in your work or product, follow our motto of persistence. Take it from these highly aspired individuals below who have made their ever-lasting mark on the world.
