How many times have you given up on something you wanted because of a setback or two?
How many times have you let other people convince you something is impossible?
How many times have you decided to play it safe instead of just going for it?
How many times have you said, “I’d do it if…”?
How many times have you waited for the perfect moment that never came?
Before you decide to give up, just remember…
Albert Einstein’s teachers thought he was stupid because he hard a hard time reading due to dyslexia.
John D. Rockefeller’s first job was selling potatoes and candy.
Oprah was fired from a Baltimore news station because her boss thought she was “unfit for TV”.
Stephen King’s Carrie was rejected by publishers so many times he threw it in the trash.

Colonel Sanders’s chicken recipe was rejected by over 1,000 restaurants before he opened his own.
Walt Disney was fired from his job at a local newspaper for not being creative enough.
Sidney Poitier’s heavy accent angered a film director who told him he should be a dishwasher instead.

Jay-Z couldn’t convince any record label to sign him.
Sylvester Stallone was so poor he had to sell his dog for $25 to buy food. (Don’t worry, he bought him back when he made it big!)
All setbacks are are challenges you have to overcome to succeed!
