J.K.ROWLING5 Inspiring Success Stories that Show How to Overcome Failures
If Edison was the King of failures, Rowling would be the queen of rejections.

“The first agent I ever queried (for Harry Potter) sent back a slip saying ‘My list is full. The folder you sent wouldn’t fit in the envelope,” says Rowling. To add to the agony, the agent even kept the folder in which she sent her book.

To which she says, “I really minded about the folder, because I had almost no money and had to buy another one.” Says a lot about the humble beginnings about someone who has consistently been among Europe’s richest persons – after her books and movies released.

But she never gave up trying – even after rejections from 12 publishers. And that’s a classic tale of motivation and mindset that’s needed to reach the top bestsellers in the history of literature.

I think it’s finally settled – success stories are built on the back of hard work and steely determination, not daydreaming during the job.
