If they failed to notice the incredible things you offer then they don’t even deserve you! You deserve better!

How to Talk About Painful Feelings of Rejection


1. Talk about your feelings with someone you trust, and someone who accepts you unconditionally.

2. Make a list of all your positive traits. Include all the good things that you see in yourself, and everything that others have mentioned in the past. Make sure the list is detailed and very, very…


Above are 10 rejection letters to various creative individuals who kept at it to achieve their dreams:

1. Madonna

2. Tim Burton

3. Andy Warhhol

4. U2

5. Kurt Vonnegut

6. Silvia Plath

7. Gertrude Stein

8. Jim Lee

9. Stieg Larsson

10. Edgar Rice Burroughs

Others didn’t save their letters, but they’ll never forget the words that fueled their success…

Walt Disney - Fired from the Kansas City Star in 1919 because he “lacked imagination and had no good ideas.”

JK Rowling - Rejected by dozens, including HarperCollins, when a small publisher in London took a chance on Harry Potter.

Oprah Winfey - Fired as an evening news reporter of Baltimore’s WJZ-TV because she couldn’t separate her emotions from her stories.

George Orwell - A publisher turned down his legendary novel, Animal Farm, with the words “It is impossible to sell animal stories in the USA”.

Jerry Seinfeld - Didn’t find out he was cut from a minor role on a sitcom until he read the script and discovered his part missing.

Elvis Presley - After a performance in Nashville early in his career, he was told by a manager that he was better off driving trucks in Memphis (his previous job).

Steve Jobs - Fired from the company he started, Apple, but was desperately brought back in 1997 to save it. Apple is now the most valuable company in the world.

Stephen King - His first book, Carrie, was rejected thirty times. He nearly threw the book out when his wife saved it from the trash and encouraged him to keep trying.

Marilyn Monroe - At the start of her storied modeling and acting career, she was told she should consider becoming a secretary.

Abraham Lincoln - Demoted from Captain to Private during war, failed as a businessman, and lost several times as a political candidate before becoming President.

The list would never end because no one has ever won without first experiencing many failures and rejections.  We can choose to learn from these lessons, or let them destroy our spirit. The ones who ultimately succeed are those who never, ever stop trying. Share this list and inspire others to keep chasing their dreams!
