“Perseverance is the hard work you do after you get tired of doing the hard work you already did.”Newt Gingrich

Success always has been – and always will be – a matter of pushing forward just one-to-two more steps when you think you can’t go on. When you’ve been defeated numerous times. When it feels as if you’ll never get there.

Just take these great examples:

Dr. Seuss – his first book was rejected by 23 publishers. The 24th finally said “yes” and sold six million copies.

Michael Jordan – Jordan was “cut” from his varsity team as a sophomore and played J.V. His hallmark drive & determination went on to fuel the greatest basketball career – ever.

Steven Spielberg – was rejected from USC’s School of Cinematic arts twice. Spielberg believed in his abilities & went on to eventually gain acceptance & build a storied cinematic career. (His steps for overcoming rejection here is a fantastic read.)

How about we add your name to this list too?
