Successful People Who Were Once Rejected

Successful People Who Were Once Rejected



Yes, even incredibly successful people have failed before their success was accomplished.

My intention in this blog is to help you find your inner courage & resurface your dreams.


Find out what actions were taken by successful people like Oprah who failed forward

Successful people like Oprah Winfrey and Vera Wang both made an intentional decision to failed forward into success accomplishment.  They refused to quit!

  • FIRST they got mentally clear; using time tested success principles that directed their path from a clear vision lens.
  • Essential mental skills helped them overcome potential obstacles far easier.
  • Believing they were not meant to live a mediocre life they learned diverse powerful strategies to shine light on + propel their vision.

I tell my clients, “It’s time to remove the mental + emotional clutter.


Knowing what to do heightened self-accountability = faster goal accomplishment

Applying full commitment helped them understand self-accountability.  Processing self-accountability is vital for reaping faster success accomplishment.

Oprah and Vera = successful people learned quickly how to overcame setbacks.  Their:

  • Dedication to developing and owning a success mentality was vital in their goal accomplishments.
  • Successful vision became far more important than excuses / fears that subconsciously popped up frequently in their mind.

Successful people grasp: Mental Clarity must come BEFORE achievements.

Before these successful people became extraordinarily successful, they realized: their potential victory required: they grasp how to take control of their thoughts, emotions and concerns.

Yes!  Despite initial rejections – being passed over – even fired, they learned and used, proven strategies and tools specific to their needs.  They:

  • Got clear on what they wanted to achieve.  Knowing how to shift their thinking helped them define what they wanted.
  • Grasped: controllable vs uncontrollable life situations.  They understood internally what worked & didn’t work previously.
  • Advancing the basic understanding of how to use their mind effectively, taught them how to turbo power their vision


Professional guidance value: trusted ‘respectful accountability

Having a trusted coach with expertise can teach you how to use your mind most effectively.  They should:

  • Care enough about you, to hold you, “respectfully accountable”.  They will help you take steady, ongoing affirmative action steps.
  • Help you recognize when a thought | goal plan strategy | idea, needs tweaking.

These bonus advantages of professional guidance support will short circuit disappointments of wasted time.
