One yes is all you need

Success nearly always is a numbers game – you have to get through many no’s before you get a yes.
But then…
Then it snowballs.

Like it did for Colonel Sanders.
He travelled around the country and was rejected over and over.
Until he got a yes.
And that yes led to KFC, one of the largest food businesses in the world.

This was also the case for Bill Gates.
He pitched his idea to investors over and over and got many rejections.
Until he got a yes.
And that led to the creation of Microsoft, one of the most successful businesses in the world.

Or like it did for J.K. Rowling.
Her manuscript was rejected by publishers over and over.
Until she got a yes.
And that led to the creation of the Harry Potter saga, one of the most successful fiction book and movie franchise in the world.

If you are disheartened by rejections, take comfort in the fact that you are not the only one.
Majority of the incredibly successful people you know of have been where you are.
And the only reason they are where they are now is because they refused to quit.
They kept going despite the numerous no’s.

If it’s worth doing, keep at it.
Because one yes is all you need.
