I’m in London right now and just got back from exploring the ancient Egyptian artifacts at the British Museum with my daughter. They also happen to have a super yummy cafe there.Â Did I mention that I’m a food lover?
Here I am wondering around the Camden Town markets with my homemade falafel in hand pushing the stroller.
We arrived last week from Spain and are having fun spending time with family, siteseeing, and soaking in our new surroundings. And since I’m in England I thought that this would be the perfect time to share with you some wisdom from J.K. Rowling, the British writer known for her Harry Potter series.
I often mention her incredible story to my clients.
Her manuscript was rejected 12 times before a publishing house in London gave her the green light. And that was a year later.
What if J.K. Rowling had given up after 10 tries? We wouldn’t have the amazing novel and movie series that are loved by millions today. She would have stayed in poverty – and would never have seen the success she now experiences.
She wasn’t afraid of failure. And she didn’t give up. She had faith in her vision.
In her inspirational commencement speech from Harvard University, J.K. Rowling shares more of her story and why failure is actually a GOOD thing. She talks about how imagination played a key part in her success as well.
Watch it and prepare to be inspired below:
J.K. Rowling experienced a failed marriage, poverty, was a single mom, had parents who were disappointed in her choices – and yet she didn’t let any of that stop her.
You too have the power to turn everything around.
You don’t have to please everyone. You only have to please yourself.
So what do you want to do? I want to encourage you to use your imagination and come up with the biggest dream for yourself. Include giving back to others in it, and the universe will surely have your back.
Don’t give up on your big dream. Trust that it IS happening.
One more phone call, email, or action may be the one that makes all the difference.
What big project are you working on right now?
I invite you to share what you’re manifesting in the comments below. Write it out as an affirmation in the present tense – even if it hasn’t happened yet. You’ll be sending a clear message to the universe – and to yourself that you trust without a doubt that it is happening. And if you’ve failed at something and learned a great lesson from it, please tell us in the comments. We can all be inspired by your affirmations and stories.
And lastly – I want to leave you with this that my sister told me once:
If you’re not afraid, you’re not dreaming big enough.
I want to go one step further:
Failure is a good thing. It means you’re reaching new heights. Embrace it as you would change, because only through failure can we learn our greatest lessons. 🙂
