From failure to success: 7 examples of who made it

    From failure to success: 7 examples of who made it It is said that the road to success is littered with failures. But in reality, we usually only know successful people once they have achieved fame and think about how lucky they have been, but we ignore all the failures, mistakes and sacrifices they went through along the way.

    So much so that it is said that the difference between those who are successful and those who do not have it is that the former never give up, but continue to try until they reach their dream. However, sometimes there is nothing better than living in daily reality to understand this concept. So, this time I propose to you the various rejections that some people received who later managed to excel in their fields of action, be it music, literature or painting. At times they received rejections in a truly rude tone that would have discouraged anyone but not them.



    1. U2. In 1976, when they were still teenagers, they presented their first single to RSO Records, a London-based record company, which turned it down stating that "their music was not appropriate for them." Later, they signed to Island Records and soon released their first single which was an instant hit internationally: "11:00 Tick Tock". The rest is history.

    2. Andy Warhol. In 1956 the artist attempted to donate some of his works to the Museum of Modern Art in New York, but this institution refused his work claiming they had no space. Today the museum owns more or less 168 Warhol pieces, many of which had to be bought for them by paying their weight in gold.

    3. Sylvia Plath. In 1962 Howard Moss, the editor of the New Yorker, rejected Sylvia Plath's poem, Amnesiac. In his rejection letter he said that the first part was unrelated to the second and that the poem was generally very "dense". This was just one of the many rejection letters received by the poetess, who said she collected them all because they reminded him that she had tried.



    4. Madonna. After receiving a rejection letter stating that the disc presented was not ready, the singer signed with Sire Records in 1982, immediately releasing the album which presumably was not ready, but which sold well over 10 million copies throughout the year. world.
    5. Tim Burton. In 1976, while still a student, Burton sent Walt Disney Productions a copy of a children's book that he himself had written and designed: "Zlig, The Giant." However, the company responded with a sharp refusal. Years later, he was hired by Disney itself and now Burton is an excellent writer and director who made a difference in animated film.
     6. Jim Lee. During the 80s of the last century, the young artist tried to make his way into the world of comics, but his work was abruptly rejected by Marvel which claimed that his drawings were of very poor quality. Later, Lee became one of the most influential cartoonists of the 90s in the United States and Marvel itself hired him.
    7. Stieg Larsson. The writer received a clear denial of his application for admission to the Stockholm School of Journalism. The letter said he "did not have the skills to be a journalist." Fortunately, Larsson did not lose heart and founded one of the most influential countercurrent magazines in Sweden and also gave us his incredible trilogy "Millennium". Now you know that problems are like stones, you can use them as boulders tied to the neck to sink or as steps on a ladder to help us climb. Success could be just around the corner.
