Rise above Rejection

Did you know that “Chicken Soup for the Soul” was rejected no less than ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY-THREE times, before eventually finding its home with a small (and apparently almost bankrupt) publisher??

This must be amongst the best of all literary rejection tales, ever. I heard it a few days ago on a Writer’s Telesummit download, directly from the lips of Rick Frishman, “best selling author, publisher and speaker”. His client and close friend, Mark Victor Hansen, who co-authored this gem of a book with Jack Canfield, approached Rick Frishman in 1993 to do the publicity. It has since sold in the region of 140 000 000 copies, and counting!

So…don’t ever be disheartened by a temporary setback 🙂
