[Quote No.53934] Need Area: Mind > Persist
"When the first Superman movie came out, I gave dozens of interviews to promote it. The most frequent question was: 'What is a hero?' I remember how easily I'd talk about it, the glib response I repeated so many times. My answer was that a hero is someone who commits a courageous action without considering the consequences. . . . Now my definition is completely different. . . . A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles." - Christopher Reeve
(1952 – 2004) American actor, film director, producer, screenwriter, author, and activist. He achieved stardom for his acting achievements, in particular his motion picture portrayal of the comic book superhero Superman. On May 27, 1995, Reeve became a quadriplegic after being thrown from a horse during an equestrian competition in Culpeper, Virginia. He required a wheelchair and a portable ventilator to breathe for the rest of his life. He lobbied on behalf of people with spinal-cord injuries and for human embryonic stem cell research, founding the Christopher Reeve Foundation and co-founding the Reeve-Irvine Research Center. This quote is from his autobiography, 'Still Me' (1998).

[Quote No.53949] Need Area: Mind > Persist
"[A true story - with a message about persisting past discouragement, rejection, criticism and other negatives - regardless of who the negatives come from whether from so-called authorities or those we are close to and care about and - regardless of what area of life whether it is in science, study, investing, business, inventing, sales, friendship, love, writing, etc. Perusing the biographies of successes will show that this trait is necessary. The following success is just one example of a writer-author:] AGATHA CHRISTIE: Her first novel ‘The Mysterious Affair at Styles’ is said to have received twenty rejections, over a period of nearly five years before finally finding a publisher. Now after having written 66 detective novels she is the best-selling novelist of all time, with book sales in excess of $2 billion and four billion copies of her novels! Only William Shakespeare has sold more." - Seymour@imagi-natives.com

"[A true story - with a message about persisting past discouragement, rejection, criticism and other negatives - regardless of who the negatives come from whether from so-called authorities or those we are close to and care about and - regardless of what area of life whether it is in science, study, investing, business, inventing, sales, friendship, love, writing, etc. Perusing the biographies of successes will show that this trait is necessary. The following success is just one example of a writer-author:] ALICE WALKER: Alice Walker wrote the book, ‘The Color Purple’, which received the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1983. It has sold more than 10 million copies and been adapted into both a musical and a feature film. But before all that, it was rejected by William Phillips, now senior executive editor and vice president of Little, Brown & Company. He has been quoted as saying about this rejection, ‘In the intervening fifteen years, the list of books I've turned down that became best sellers is as long as my arm . . . My only comfort is that every editor of long standing is burdened with a similar list.' " - Seymour@imagi-natives.com

It went on to sell more than 8 million copies. Such was the success that The Pulitzer Prize administration awarded the novel a Special Citation in 1977 and the book was made into a 1977 TV series." - Seymour@imagi-natives.com

The following success is just one example of a film screenwriter and producer:] ALLAN LOEB: According to Allan: ‘[I was] the baby writer at the lowest rung within the system, who has just enough rope to hang himself. That's what I lived and breathed for seven, eight years. The money's not much, the respect is bad, and it's tough to play in the minor leagues. I really was trying to find a way out.’ Even his agent dumped him. But then he hit gold, sold a script, and as they say in Hollywood, a star was born. He went on to write 'Things We Lost in the Fire', the drama film '21', 'The Switch', 'Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps', 'The Dilemma', 'Just Go With It' and 'So Undercover' starring Miley Cyrus, released in 2012." - Seymour@imagi-natives.com

The following success is just one example of a writer-author:] AMANDA HOCKING: 26-year-old Amanda Hocking wrote a series of vampire books that were rejected by the publishing houses. She decided not to let this stop her so she explored other options and decided to publish them herself digitally. She has now sold over a million copies of her books ('My Blood Approves', 'Fate', and 'Flutter'), is the best-selling ‘indie’ writer in the Kindle Store, AND keeps a whopping 70% of her book sales! Back of the envelope math suggests that selling 100,000 copies a month at $1 to $3 a pop and keeping 70%, Hocking can make millions per year, straight to her pocket." - Seymour@imagi-natives.com

The following success is just one example of a writer-author:] ANNE FRANK: Anne Frank, who documented her time hiding from the Nazis until she was ultimately sent to Auschwitz, in her book, 'The Diary Of Anne Frank’, has affected countless lives. Eleanor Roosevelt once described her book as ‘one of the wisest and most moving commentaries on war and its impact on human beings that I have ever read’ and 'Time Magazine' selected Anne Frank as one of the ‘most important people of the century.’ Before the diary was published, it was rejected by fifteen publishers. According to one publisher, it was scarcely worth reading: ‘The girl doesn't, it seems to me, have a special perception or feeling which would lift that book above the 'curiosity' level.’ It wasn’t until the manuscript was featured in a newspaper article that it attracted the attention of a publisher. Eventually, Doubleday, brought the translation to the world, and 'The Diary of Anne Frank' sold 25 million copies, allowing Anne Frank to give a voice to one of the darkest moments in history." - Seymour@imagi-natives.com

The following success is just one example of a writer-author:] AYN RAND: Her manuscript for 'The Fountainhead' was rejected by twelve publishers. One publisher who rejected the novel reportedly wrote: ‘It is badly written and the hero is unsympathetic.’ Another supposedly said: ‘I wish there were an audience for a book of this kind. But there isn't. It won't sell.’ Eventually the manuscript was seen by a young editor, Archibald Ogden, at the Bobbs-Merrill Company. He risked his job to get it published in 1943. Despite mixed reviews from the contemporary media, the book gained a following by word of mouth and became a bestseller, with more than 6.5 million copies sold." - Seymour@imagi-natives.com

[Quote No.53957] Need Area: Mind > Persist
"This manuscript of yours that has just come back from another editor is a precious package. Don't consider it rejected. Consider that you've addressed it 'to the editor who can appreciate my work' and it has simply come back stamped 'Not at this address'. Just keep looking for the right address. [This is the right attitude for persistence with anything - sales, friends, job applications, etc.]" - Barbara Kingsolver
Best-selling novelist of 'The Poisonwood Bible', among others.

The following success is just one example of a writer-author:] BEATRIX POTTER: She sent her first children’s book manuscript to six publishers, but was rejected by all of them because of, among other things, the lack of colour pictures, which were popular at the time. In September 1901, she decided to self-publish and distribute 250 copies of a renamed ‘The Tale of Peter Rabbit’. Later that year, because the colour printing blocks were already created and other children’s books were popular, she finally attracted the publisher Frederick Warne and Co. The publishing contract was signed in June 1902 and, by the end of the year, 28,000 copies were in print. It has now sold more than 45 million copies and is a beloved memory for many people." - Seymour@imagi-natives.com

[Quote No.53965] Need Area: Mind > Persist
"[A true story - with a message about persisting past discouragement, rejection, criticism and other negatives - regardless of who the negatives come from whether from so-called authorities or those we are close to and care about and - regardless of what area of life whether it is in science, study, investing, business, inventing, sales, friendship, love, writing, etc. Perusing the biographies of successes will show that this trait is necessary. The following success is just one example of a writer-author:] EMILY DICKINSON: One of the most famous female American poets, Emily Dickinson, had fewer than a dozen poems published during her lifetime, when she had written nearly 1800! And, of the few poems that were published during her lifetime, most were greatly altered by the publishers to fit the conventional poetic rules of the time, as her's were unique - containing short lines, typically lacking titles, and often using slant rhyme as well as unconventional capitalization and punctuation. Sadly, no one was able to recognize Emily Dickinson’s genius during her lifetime, and it wasn’t until after her death in 1886 when her sister discovered her poems and her first collection was published in 1890." - Seymour@imagi-natives.com

The following success is just one example of a writer-author:] FRANK HERBERT: His epic science-fiction story ‘Dune’ took six years of research and writing to complete. Far longer than commercial science fiction of the time was supposed to run, it was serialized in ‘Analog’ magazine in two separate parts (‘Dune World’ and ‘Prophet of Dune’), in 1963 and 1965. It was then rejected by 23 publishers before being accepted by Chilton, a small Philadelphia publisher. ‘Dune’ quickly became a success, winning awards such as the Hugo Award for Best Novel in 1966. It was followed by five sequels, and though none did as well as the original, a film version of the book starring rock star Sting did quite well and remains a cult favorite. ‘Dune’ has also become the best-selling science-fiction novel of all time." - Seymour@imagi-natives.com

The following success is just one example of a writer-author:] GEORGE ORWELL: George Orwell had a tough time getting a publisher to say yes to his politically anti-Soviet [anti-Stalinist] novel, 'Animal Farm'. He encountered great difficulty getting the manuscript published, as it was feared that the book might upset the alliance between the US, UK and the Soviet Union. Four publishers refused; one had initially accepted the work but declined after consulting the Ministry of Information warned him off - although the civil servant who it is assumed gave the order was later found to be a Soviet spy. The same publisher sent Orwell a rejection letter, explaining: ‘If the fable were addressed generally to dictators and dictatorships at large then publication would be all right, but the fable does follow, as I see now, so completely the progress of the Russian Soviets and their two dictators [Lenin and Stalin], that it can apply only to Russia, to the exclusion of the other dictatorships.’ He went on to write that his novel would be less offensive if the ruling class wasn’t depicted as pigs: ‘Another thing: it would be less offensive if the predominant caste in the fable were not pigs. I think the choice of pigs as the ruling caste will no doubt give offense to many people, and particularly to anyone who is a bit touchy, as undoubtedly the Russians are.’ It was also rejected by T.S. Eliot as head of Faber & Faber because of its ‘Trotskyite politics’. However publisher Secker & Warburg spotted its potential, and it became a best-seller." - Seymour@imagi-natives.com

The following success is just one example of a writer-author:] HOWARD FAST: It was while he was in jail that Fast began writing his most famous work, ‘Spartacus’, a novel about an uprising among Roman slaves. Blacklisted by major publishing houses following his release from prison, Fast was forced to publish the novel himself. By the standards of a self-published book, it was a great success, going through seven printings in the first four months of publication. (According to Fast in his memoir, 50,000 copies were printed, of which 48,000 were sold.) He subsequently established the Blue Heron Press, which allowed him to continue publishing under his own name throughout the period of his blacklisting. His prison stay, by the way, was for 3 months. He was given the sentence for refusing to disclose the names of contributors to a home for orphans of American veterans of the Spanish Civil War. So not only was he rejected and then blacklisted, but through his own self-publishing he persevered and in 1960 Spartacus was released in film. And Crown Publishers reissued Fast’s novel in 1958." - Seymour@imagi-natives.com

She wastes endless pages on utter trivia, writes wide-eyed romantic scenes that would not make the pages of True Confessions, hauls out every terrible show biz cliché in all the books, lets every good scene fall apart in endless talk and allows her book to ramble aimlessly.... most of the first 200 pages are virtually worthless and dreadfully dull and practically every scene is dragged out flat and stomped on by her endless talk...

The following success is just one example of a writer-author:] JAMES JOYCE: He received many rejections for his work. His work ‘The Dubliners’, a collection of short stories, had 22 rejections before a publisher took a chance on a young James Joyce in 1914. They didn't take too big of a chance though -- only printing 1,250 copies of 'The Dubliners' initially. Joyce's popularity didn't hit right away; out of the 379 copies that sold in the first year, Joyce himself purchased 120 of them. His work ‘A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man’ had a difficult time getting published too. On 7 January 1904 he had attempted to publish ‘A Portrait of the Artist’, an essay-story dealing with aesthetics, only to have it rejected from the free-thinking magazine ‘Dana’. He decided, on his twenty-second birthday, to revise the story into a novel he called ‘Stephen Hero’. It was a fictional rendering of Joyce's youth, but he eventually grew frustrated with its direction and abandoned this work. It was never published in this form, but years later, in Trieste, Joyce completely rewrote it as ‘A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man’. The unfinished ‘Stephen Hero’ was published after his death. His work, ‘Ulysses’, was also rejected several times on the grounds of ‘obscenity.’ Despite these and other rejections Joyce would go on to be regarded as one of the most influential writers of the 20th century." - Seymour@imagi-natives.com

"[A true story - with a message about persisting past discouragement, rejection, criticism and other negatives - regardless of who the negatives come from whether from so-called authorities or those we are close to and care about and - regardless of what area of life whether it is in science, study, investing, business, inventing, sales, friendship, love, writing, etc. Perusing the biographies of successes will show that this trait is necessary. The following success is just one example of a writer-author:] JAMES PATTERSON: Initially 31 publishers in a row turn down his work, ‘The Thomas Berryman Number’. Once published though it wins the Edgar for Best Novel and becomes a best-seller. He later has 19 consecutive number 1′s on the New York Times best-seller list and sales of 220 million." - Seymour@imagi-natives.com

"[A true story - with a message about persisting past discouragement, rejection, criticism and other negatives - regardless of who the negatives come from whether from so-called authorities or those we are close to and care about and - regardless of what area of life whether it is in science, study, investing, business, inventing, sales, friendship, love, writing, etc. Perusing the biographies of successes will show that this trait is necessary. The following success is just one example of a writer-author:] J. K. ROWLING: In 1995, Rowling finished her manuscript for ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone’ on an old manual typewriter. Upon the enthusiastic response of Bryony Evans, a reader who had been asked to review the book’s first three chapters, the Fulham-based Christopher Little Literary Agents agreed to represent Rowling in her quest for a publisher. The book was submitted to twelve publishing houses, all of which rejected the manuscript. A year later she was finally given the green light (and a £1500 advance) by editor Barry Cunningham from Bloomsbury, a small British publishing house in London, England. The decision to publish Rowling's book apparently owes much to Alice Newton, the eight-year-old daughter of Bloomsbury’s chairman, who was given the first chapter to review by her father and immediately demanded the next. Although Bloomsbury agreed to publish the book, Cunningham says that he advised Rowling to get a day job, since she had little chance of making money in children’s books. Soon after, in 1997, Rowling received an £8000 grant from the Scottish Arts Council to enable her to continue writing. The following spring, an auction was held in the United States for the rights to publish the novel, and was won by Scholastic Inc., for $105,000. Rowling has said she ‘nearly died’ when she heard the news. In June 1997, Bloomsbury published ‘Philosopher’s Stone’ with an initial print-run of one thousand copies, five hundred of which were distributed to libraries. Today, such copies are valued between £16,000 and £25,000. Five months later, the book won its first award, a Nestlé Smarties Book Prize. In February, the novel won the prestigious British Book Award for Children’s Book of the Year, and later, the Children’s Book Award. In October 1998, Scholastic published ‘Philosopher’s Stone’ in the US under the title of ‘Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone’: a change Rowling claims she now regrets and would have fought if she had been in a better position at the time. In December 1999, the third novel, ‘Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban’, won the Smarties Prize, making Rowling the first person to win the award three times running. She later withdrew the fourth Harry Potter novel from contention to allow other books a fair chance. In January 2000, ‘Prisoner of Azkaban’ won the inaugural Whitbread Children’s Book of the Year award, though it lost the Book of the Year prize to Seamus Heaney’s translation of Beowulf. The fourth book, ‘Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire’, was released simultaneously in the UK and the US on 8 July 2000, and broke sales records in both countries. Some 372,775 copies of the book were sold in its first day in the UK, almost equalling the number of ‘Prisoner of Azkaban’ sold during its first year. In the US, the book sold three million copies in its first 48 hours, smashing all literary sales records. Rowling admitted that she had had a moment of crisis while writing the novel; ‘Halfway through writing Four, I realised there was a serious fault with the plot ... I've had some of my blackest moments with this book ... One chapter I rewrote 13 times, though no-one who has read it can spot which one or know the pain it caused me.’ Rowling was named author of the year in the 2000 British Book Awards. A wait of three years occurred between the release of ‘Goblet of Fire’ and the fifth Harry Potter novel, ‘Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix’. This gap led to press speculation that Rowling had developed writer's block, speculations she fervently denied. Rowling later admitted that writing the book was a chore. ‘I think Phoenix could have been shorter’, she told Lev Grossman, ‘I knew that, and I ran out of time and energy toward the end.’ The sixth book, ‘Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince’, was released on 16 July 2005. It too broke all sales records, selling nine million copies in its first 24 hours of release. While writing, she told a fan online, ‘Book six has been planned for years, but before I started writing seriously I spend two months re-visiting the plan and making absolutely sure I knew what I was doing.’ She noted on her website that the opening chapter of book six, which features a conversation between the Minister of Magic and the British Prime Minister, had been intended as the first chapter first for ‘Philosopher's Stone’, then ‘Chamber of Secrets’ then ‘Prisoner of Azkaban’. In 2006, ‘Half-Blood Prince’ received the Book of the Year prize at the British Book Awards. The title of the seventh and final Harry Potter book was revealed 21 December 2006 to be ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’. In February 2007 it was reported that Rowling wrote on a bust in her hotel room at the Balmoral Hotel in Edinburgh that she had finished the seventh book in that room on 11 January 2007. ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’ was released on 21 July 2007 (0:00 BST) and broke its predecessor's record as the fastest-selling book of all time. It sold 11 million copies in the first day of release in the United Kingdom and United States. She has said that the last chapter of the book was written ‘in something like 1990’, as part of her earliest work on the entire series. During a year period when Rowling was completing the last book, she allowed herself to be filmed for a documentary which aired in Britain on ITV on 30 December 2007. It was entitled ‘J K Rowling... A Year In The Life’ and showed her returning to her old Edinburgh tenement flat where she lived, and completed the first Harry Potter book. Re-visiting the flat for the first time reduced her to tears, saying it was ‘really where I turned my life around completely.’ Harry Potter is now a global brand worth an estimated £7 billion ($15 billion), and the last four Harry Potter books have consecutively set records as the fastest-selling books in history. The series, totalling 4,195 pages, has been translated, in whole or in part, into 65 languages. The Harry Potter books have also gained recognition for sparking an interest in reading among the young at a time when children were thought to be abandoning the book for the computer and the television, although the series' overall impact on children's reading habits has been questioned." - wikipedia.org

The following success is just one example of a writer-author: KATHRYN STOCKETT:] In the end, I received 60 rejections for ‘The Help’. But letter number 61 was the one that accepted me.

Three weeks later, Susan sold ‘The Help’ to Amy Einhorn Books.The point is, I can’t tell you how to succeed. But I can tell you how not to: Give in to the shame of being rejected and put your manuscript - or painting, song, voice, dance moves, [insert passion here] - in the coffin that is your bedside drawer and close it for good. I guarantee you that it won’t take you anywhere. [‘The Help’ became a number 1 bestseller worldwide - it is now in 35 countries and three languages - and a major motion picture.]" - Kathryn Stockett

It was only in 1896 that his first book, a quasi-serious look at nursery rhymes, Mother Goose in Prose, was accepted. This was followed by a collection of poetry... and then came The Wizard of Oz.’ It was also said (although not documented) that he received a rejection letter stating that ‘Oz’, first named ‘The Emerald City’, was ‘too radical of a departure from traditional juvenile literature.’ ‘The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz’ eventually sold more than 15 million copies and became a beloved Hollywood movie." - Unknown
