Rags to Riches

Rags to Riches - JK RowlingJ.K Rowling is the author of the best-selling Harry Potter series, which is “all the rage” with audiences today.  Here is what you may not know about this woman,born “Jo” Murray,  who is now reported to have more money than the Queen of England:
“Joanne Murray” is a British author who has a fabulous rags to riches story.  In fact, she went from being a single mother and living on welfare to being a multi-millionaire in the span of only five years.  Yet that is not what most impresses me.
After writing the Harry Potter series (and still living on welfare) she sent her manuscript to countless publishers.  They all turned it down… calling it a “silly farce” that would “never sell”.  But she remained optimistic. 
And because she BELIEVED optimistically, she BEHAVED optimistically. She submitted that “silly farce” to another publisher… and then another… until she found one that saw its potential and took a risk on a then unknown author.  The rest is history. 
However, EVERY future would be better if we followed her lead… FIRST, BELIEVING optimistically and THEN, BEHAVING optimistically.  It was her “secret” to success.  And yours.
