I know there are a lot of posts out here on this subject. Everyone likes to talk about the people who were once failures, before they became famous and successful. But it really honestly lifts my spirits, and I thought it might make you happy, too, so I'm rounding up some posts and pictures about people who failed the first (hundreds of) time they tried, but in the end, became massive successes. A lot of these are going to be authors. Enjoy!
