Rejection led them to success. Inspiring stories!
In this section, we want to show you that refusal is not always something bad. You may be grateful for this in the future because, thanks to it, you will meet something better. The most important is to never stop trying and believing in yourself. Exactly as they do:
He was born in a crime district, grew up without his father, and as a teenager, he traded drugs. Three times he was a participant in the shootout, at the age of 12, he shot his brother because he took away his jewelery. If not his passion-music, in the best case he would have been in prison. He dreamed of becoming a rapper, but no label wanted to give him a chance. So what did he do? He founded his own label and released his first album.
2. Jack Ma
Chinese businessman, billionaire, the largest internet retailer, the owner of, inter alia, Aliexpress. His story is shocking! Three times he didn’t get to high school, 3 years he attempted to enter the university, 30 times he tried to find a job. When he applied for the police force, all candidates were accepted, except for him. Then he tried to get a job at KFC, 23 candidates were accepted, Jack was the only one that was rejected! He tried to get to Harvard 10 times and he never succeeded.
3. Steve Jobs
– In 1985, he got fired from Apple with the approval of most employees. “Then I didn’t see it, but it turned out that Apple’s ejecting was the best thing I could get.” – Steve Jobs
10 years later he was hired again and probably, if not, the company would never have such a tremendous success. The most important is that Steve didn’t wallow in despair after being fired, but got down to work and as he said, it was the most creative time in his life.
“Those who don’t get discouraged, eventually get what they want.”
