Happy New Year Everyone!
Are you feeling inspired by the new year? I always do. It is after all a new beginning. :0)
My favorite inspiration writers story is about Dr. Seuss…
He had a list, an editors list. You see, he had wrote a story about a cat and a hat, and he believed in that story. So he sent it out to the first editor on his list. It came back with a rejection and you know he had to be sad. But he didn’t give up. He crossed off the editors name and sent it out to the second editor on his list. It came back with another rejection and you know he had to be at least a little more sad. But he didn’t give up. He crossed off that editors name and sent it out to the third editor on his list. It came back with another rejection and may be he felt like he wasn’t so sure in his story. But he didn’t give up. He sent it out to the four editor, then the fifth, the sixth, and on and on. Each time crossing off that particular editor name. Then after over 40 rejections someone saw something in this story, someone else believed in his work. And now so many someones enjoy his stories every year. All because he refused to give up!
But he is not the only famous person who didn’t give up. Here’s a video I stole from Elizabeth Dulemba. Hopefully to inspire you. Whatever you are doing… Dream, Believe, and Reach For The Stars!
Happy New Year All!
