Rejection- the very word is laden with negativity and heart break. But the question is: should it be?
The best of the best out there have faced rejections and overcome the stigma with flying colors. These people survived and succeeded because they never let the negativity get there better of them.
Check out these letters; each one of them sent to a person who is no less than an icon of success now:
Madonna: Yes, the Material Girl, the goddess of op music had her share of rejections and tough times
Bono: Can you even contemplate the idea of someone rejecting the U2 front man?
Sylvia Plath: The extremely talented and celebratedpoet, novelist and short story writer
Andy Warhol: None other than the father of modern pop art.
Jim Lee: One of the world’s best-known figures in the world of comic books. If you think this artist, writer, and co-publisher of DC Comics had it easy, think again.
You see, nothing comes easy in life.
As writer Ben Carson says, “Success is determined not by whether or not you face obstacles, but by your reaction to them. And if you look at these obstacles as a containing fence, they become your excuse for failure. If you look at them as a hurdle, each one strengthens you for the next.”
