    The only way to be sure you never fail is to never try. So, if you want to be an entrepreneur, buckle your seatbelt for a bumpy ride.
    Epic inventor Thomas Edison generated 10,000 prototypes for electric light bulbs before getting it right, according to the infographic below, created by San Francisco-based startup organization Funders and Founders. And Colonel Sanders, the founder of KFC, was rejected 1,009 times when he tried to sell his fried chicken recipe.
    How many times have you tried and failed so far? What?s your secret to keep trying again?

    I call B.S. on most of these.Come on S.Stalone got rejected 1500 times?

    He would've got too old to even play in Rocky :))


    Here is a statistic i heard from Barney "The statistic say that 83% percent of statistics are made on the spot!"

    I just want to leave a quick line which come on my mind when I've read this infographic.

    "I have not failed 10 000 times. I have successfully found 10 000 ways to not make a light bulb" - Edison

    Never give up!

    Stallone still has most of the rejection letters.

    Sylvester Stallone had it rough as child. He was taunted in school and in and out of foster homes.

    He didn't have it much better as an adult. Not able to earn a steady income, and having to sell his dog for $25 to help turn on his electricity, he was faced with many obstacles.

    It was only 2 weeks after selling his dog that he wrote the Rocky script in nearly 20 hours straight. He peddled the script relentlessly. Finally, being rejected over 1500 times, Stallone was given a nod by United Artists for $125,000. BUT - only if Stallone would NOT star in it. Stallone refused.

    He was subsequently offered $250,000 and $325,000! He would not accept unless he starred in it. Finally they compromised. They would allow him to play the role of Rocky, but would only pay him $35,000 and a percentage of profits as a concession. He accepted.

    Incidentally, Stallone's first purchase with his $35,000 windfall was buying his dog back for a whopping $15,000! Rocky cost $1,000,000 to make. It grossed over $200,000,000!! His sequels grossed over a billion dollars!! Never Quit!

    If you have the drive to achieve something, you will get there ... eventually.

    Or not if the tests were simple, like trying to light up a short metal wire by changing its thickness :)
