Most times, we get frustrated when people or companies reject our offers for goods and services. We feel bad when we are not offered that job or admission we applied for. Do you know that some of the founders of the biggest companies in the world were rejected by a thousand other companies?

Colonel Sanders was told a resounding NO for his chicken recipe by over a thousand restaurants for over a year while he lived in his car.

Today, he is the founder and creator of the Kentucky Fried Chicken(KFC) and his fast food restaurant is by far larger than those restaurants that told him No.

Walt Disney was also turned down by over a hundred banks when he tried to develop Disneyland. Today Disney Company is richer than some banks.

So, next time you read:

‘Thank you for your submission, but unfortunately…. Or ‘We are sorry, we cannot… or ‘We are unable to accept…’

Don’t let it discourage you, no matter how many ‘NOs’ you get stay strong, stay focused and remember Colonel Sanders, Walt Disney and a host of others to keep you going.
