They Have a Job - You Have a Calling
Over the weekend, I watched a documentary on J.K. Rowling. She is the author of the Harry Potter books. Rowling's first attempt at publishing was rejected. So were her third, fourth, and her twelfth efforts.
Finally, on the thirteenth try her first book was accepted by a small publishing house.
Rowling wrote much of the first Harry Potter book in a cafe with her baby daughter at her side. But she didn't give up. She stuck with it.
If you believe in your craft, don't allow the negative opinions of others to dampen your spirit.
Remember, the overwhelming majority of the naysayers have a job. You have a calling. And there is a distinct difference.
