“Persistence is the key. Study those who succeed and learn their secret: Ask enough times and you shall eventually receive. No failure is final unless you make it so. You fell down the first time you tried to stand or walk; you swung and missed your first times at bat.
Seven publishers rejected Margaret Mitchell’s “Gone with the Wind” before someone said yes; R.H. Macy failed numerous times before his New York store succeeded; English novelist John Creasey received 753 rejection slips before he published his first of 564 books. And more than three hundred banks turned down Walt Disney’s application before one finally agreed to loan him the funds to build Disneyland. Every failure brings us closer to success, so bear in mind that sometimes it’s the last key on the ring that opens the door.”
Dan Millman, in “Living on Purpose”
