I bumped in to this article about Monica Phromsavanh and it blew me away. Apart from the fact that this is a story that every human being (regardless of him being a professional or not, entrepreneur or not) must read, it showed me the power of resilience.
How many times have you been snubbed?
How many times have you been shown the door?
How many times have you been hurt, emotionally (not just physically)?
How many times have you been denied your due?
How many times did your own write you off?
You should only adopt one reaction to it – resilience.
Side Note: Don’t define your success by how high you climb. Define it by how high you bounce when you hit rock bottom. I need to believe in this – now more than ever before.
