Know When To Let Go But Never Give Up

Many of the world’s biggest successes overcame repeated failures before they succeeded.

Consider these examples:

• R.H. Macy failed 7 times before his store in New York caught on.

• Novelist John Creasey got 753 rejection slips before
he published the first of his 564 books.

• Thomas Edison was thrown out of school in the
early grades when the teachers decided he could not do the work.

• President Harry S. Truman went broke in the men’s clothing store he started.

• When Bob Dylan performed at a high school talent show, his classmates booed him off the stage.

• W. Clement Stone, successful insurance company executive and founder of Success magazine, was a high school dropout.
