Rejection’s only Temporary

I found this post in my archives and thought I’d bring it up again. Before you take your latest rejection to heart, take a look at these Rejection Notices from now famous books:

Animal Farm – George Orwell
It’s impossible to sell animal stories in the USA.

The Diary of Anne Frank
The girl doesn’t, it seems to me, have a special perception or feeling which would lift that book above the mere “curiosity” level.

Plenty of great projects were rejected first – some were rejected many times.  Remember that a major record label rejected The Beatles because they thought guitar music was just a passing fad.

The problem is, too many people with great ideas stop working once they get rejected.  Learn from rejection, just like you can learn from all criticism, but never let rejection overpower your determination.

If it’s a truly original idea, few people will see it’s potential.  So don’t give up.

Have you had any projects rejected, only to become a success later?
