Transcript of the Video:
He’s never ever ever give up Chicken Soup for the soul was rejected by a hundred
and forty four publishers hundred forty four publishers said we don’t want to publish a collection of short stories the
title Stupid Chicken Soup for the soul what does that mean people don’t buy collections of short stories there’s never
been you know successful chain of doing that so literally we spent fourteen months trying to find a publisher
and we’d go to New York with our agent Benchley our educators to book back
and said I can’t sell so we went to the national Booksellers Association convention down in Atlanta we went from the
booth to the three day
and over four thousand public representatives we go to publish the book to publish the book to publish the book
and we got no no no and it was late on the third day of public service
and for that we got number forty four rejections said the reader
and then they said he said well how many copies you think will sell so they said they would buy completely publish it
and least they said well maybe twenty thousand look. We sell it articles sell it knowing they have to.
Have you ever told someone your dream and have them laugh.
Now that we’ve given one hundred publishers and said No I wouldn’t be standing here.
You know wouldn’t happen and so you’ve got to be willing to persevered because we didn’t take no so
when the world says no you say next so what we have is this endless possibility
but you have to persevered It’s as if the universe tests our commitment
and so today we have one hundred forty seven titles in print we sold over one hundred fifteen million copies we’re in
forty seven languages
and over a billion dollars with a Chicken Soup For The Soul books have been sold worldwide So if you’re willing to
decide what you want believe it’s possible consciously envision the future feel the feelings of what it would feel like
This goal you can have anything and then you take action both obvious actions and inspired action you can do anything.
Illogical to refuse those kind of things. Well you know you’re always affected by opinion but.
The more opinions there are of the. More.
The less I look at them because I just can’t live my life based upon what other people think about so I can consume us
all to the people saying it’s just not healthy. Thing to continue to do what I do it’s possible some thought.
You know every time you lose that something you’re one step closer to the next time the difference between successful
people and not successful are people jump.
To the hardest thing in life to learn just solution when it is easy
when you’re happy the high cost of your friends are happy it should deliver to take a loss get up the next day just
yourself off and keep going I have lost everything you can imagine certain we have I have been.
Put down and everything that can go wrong the strong wrong for me but I just kept going.
To be acting business fail all the time early on in my career IOW dishful for the role of the. Perfect lazy me Uncle.
But here’s the thing. I did. It in.
I was better they had to care for the next door addition and the next two edition and the next day. I prayed.
I prayed and I prayed. But I continued to fail and fail. So you will catch a break and I did catch a break. Last year.
I did a play called fences. Won the Tony Award. But here’s the kicker it. It was at the Court Theatre.
It was at the same theater that I failed at first edition thirty years prior.
But your ability to take a loss get up the next day dust yourself off
and keep going I have lost that everything you can imagine serves that we have I have.
Been put down and everything that can go over all is gone wrong all right I just have all.
Of those of you but of experiences to. Come give up when you break. No one could convince me holding all.
My continuing the push pull by continuing to run to look at my street. One day. I would have all the shit.
It’s a long shot to get a member to sit in the band and milling all modern know my mother cause it’s a long shot. being here With unit.
In Atlanta too long shot not cutting able to pull me to. But I kept. My. Little. And the.
I think I have an insatiable appetite to. Make things which are things a little.
You know compelled beyond a reasonable doubt and you know I don’t think that it can be a. Reasonable or logical.
Thing in a certain point you at least. Seem old to loop holes you know wrong on. A little. Girl and.
So I think that that compulsions has to be there has to be something that you you can doubt all the time that deep down
inside you know that this is something you have to do
and you know I think I’ve dealt with some of the adversity some of the challenges of which we’ve had many you know I
started a band in the world laughter. And we’ve had an incredible life as a result.
So if I had listened to the choir the chorus of reverence I would have stopped because that’s what people want for some
reason some people would rather live your dreams and. I don’t know what that is.
You know I think it’s important to be stubborn and to be the least so. Look look. Look. I.
Want to do something I’ve never done before and I don’t know but I. Want to be.
Truthful I want to push you know the pursuit of the something to say she never. So when I said do what I said do.
It sit out. There but he told me to do that and that’s also.
With all the doors there’s always the people who will tell you can’t even click while. I’m there so that’s.
What the biggest struggle now was just getting around other people to get to that would say OK.
That’s the biggest struggle just to get around one guy says Yeah you can do it
when you talk to the monies that countless little.
You know there are so few people telling you to do it you know if there is a law to save you money check you say please
please please don’t take me I’m still taking risk is the way to the stimulus so.
Wish you the biggest struggle for me was not the people closest to me was the biggest
and pretend I’m going to the another Everybody tells you no need to do that then.
It wants to be accelerated on
and then you got somebody in the back seat saying hey be careful nobody likes a back seat driver OK So they’re sitting
there they’re putting they’re putting mental pressure on the brakes when you’re trying to accelerate.
