Inspirational: Persistence Will Make You Succeed

One of the most famous basketball players of all time and famous all over the world, Michael Jordan was cut from the basketball team in high school. Can you believe that the coach said he wasn't any good?

Well, Jordan might have believed that he wasn't good at that moment, but he didn't accept that he couldn't get good if he kept at it. And keep at it is exactly what he did. He persisted and ended up being one of the best basketball players ever.

J.K. Rowling

The ninth best-selling fiction author of all time didn't just sit down and write the best-selling Harry Potter series right from the start. No. She had only three chapters of the first Harry Potter novel written when her marriage ended in divorce, and she ended up jobless and homeless with a young child.

Even though she had to go on welfare, she persisted in writing Harry Potter. She submitted the novel and was rejected by 12 major publishers. Still she didn't give up. She persisted and finally connected with a small publisher that believed in her.

Only 1,000 copies of her first book were published. At this point, though, she has sold more than 400 million copies of her Harry Potter books. Persistence.

Elvis Presley

"You ain't goin' nowhere, son. You ought to go back to drivin' a truck." These were the words that manager of the Grand Ole Opry Jimmy Denny said when he fired Elvis after seeing just one performance.

Fortunately, Elvis didn't accept that judgment. Instead, he believed in himself and persisted until he became rock & roll's first big star – and eventually, simply the 'King.'

Sylvester Stallone

When he was just an impoverished young man, Stallone had a scenario that he'd written. Fifty producers turned him down, and each one told him that he didn't have any talent to be a director or a writer.

That scenario was the script for the blockbuster movie Rocky. You see, Stallone persisted over and over. Looking at his position in Hollywood now, no one would believe that he'd been rejected fifty times.

Everyone Can Be Persistent

"It's not that I'm so smart, it's just that I stay with problems longer." – Albert Einstein
As you can see with just these four examples, rejection doesn't necessarily mean that you're not competent. Successful people probably encountered rejection more often than most people.

If Jordan, Rowling, Elvis, and Stallone had accepted the judgment of 'experts' who said they weren't talented, the world would have lost out on some spectacular basketball games, novels, music, and movies.

And you can be an online superhero. Be persistent!
