Two years ago I tried to make this happen. I invested over 100 hours, submitted it and it was rejected at least 14 times.
About 8 months ago, I came up with a brand new idea, invested around 40 hours, submitted it again and I was rejected again. This time by 10 groups.
I received some feedback from one of the rejecting groups. This time, the rejecting group offered a call to discuss it’s short comings. I agreed, listened, went back to work, made significant adjustments, invested another 50 hours and $1500 and resubmitted it.
I waited patiently. I had nightmares about it. I dreamed about it. I thought about it everyday. This time it was different. I believed in my soul, I was going to make it happen. I was going to score a big milestone.
Today I got the call. The big, fat green light was mine!
I was accepted, not rejected.
This was confirmation my hard work and ideas were very worthy of something amazing.
Hopefully by next week I can share all the details of this incredible event.
Now it’s up to me. It’s my responsibility to make this light shine brightly on millions around the world.
If you have a dream and a goal, keep pounding away at it. If you get rejected, learn why, make it better and don’t give up!
