As I receive yet another rejection
on a manuscript,
I remind myself that
rejection is part of every success.

The pilot for Mad Men
was rejected by both HBO and Showtime.

As Mad Men’s creator
Matthew Weiner

“A lot of the business people
and creative people
that I’m fascinated by
all have something in common,
which is a lot of failure
–a lot of dramatic failure
–and a lot of rejection.

All of us face conflict in our life
and obviously no one just gives you anything
–that might create its own problems.
I don’t know about that.

But you get to a point
where you’re like,
okay, I can be bitter
and just stop
or I can keep going
because I really don’t have a choice.”

Don’t allow rejection
and failure to stop you.
Keep going.
