You tried. You failed. That’s okay. Try again. Look at these people who failed and failed before they finally made it:

J. K. ROWLING-her novel was rejected 12 times by publishers. When it was finally published it became a best seller and the Harry Potter movie was born out of it.

OPRAH WINFREY-was fired from her job as a television reporter because she was “unfit for TV.” She went on to start her own show and later on her own channel.

THOMAS EDISON-made 1,000 unsuccessful attempts at inventing the light bulb. Finally, there was light! We have the light bulb today.

MICHAEL JORDAN-could not make the cut for his high school basketball team. He became one of the most celebrated basketball players of all time. “I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”

MICHAEL SATA-failed 3 times before becoming president of Zambia. Some had said Mr. Sata would never become president! Thank God-your destiny is not tied to other people’s opinions.

There is no failure except in no longer trying. Try again friend, try again.
