Walt Disney had a series of failures in his early career.
His first studio went bankrupt. His second was essentially stolen from him because of a poorly written contract.
When he tried to get MGM studios to distribute Mickey Mouse in 1927, he was told that the idea would never work - a giant mouse on the screen would terrify women.
But he kept going. He kept creating. He kept believing in his vision. He never let a "no," keep him from his next "yes."
Sometimes a good kick in the teeth is what keeps us forging ahead. And sometimes it's the very thing that makes us quit.
Be like Walt Disney and keep your held high when the odds are against you.
You never know what stroke of genius is right around the corner.
