When a project I poured my heart and soul into was rejected, it stung. Badly.
While these painful moments happen to all of us, it’s easy to feel alone – thinking we’re the only ones.
But, even C.S. Lewis experienced rejection. Dr. Seuss’ first book was rejected twenty-seven times. Michael Jordan was cut from his high school basketball team. In 1919, Walt Disney was fired from the Kansas City Star because his editor said he “lacked imagination and had no good ideas.” Elvis was told he’d be better off driving trucks than singing.
