U2, Bono and Perseverance

Posted on Updated on

Writer Jon Acuff made a great observation about rejection.   Take a look below…..

Afraid of being rejected?

Afraid someone who matters, will tell you that your dream doesn’t?

Afraid people won’t like whatever it is you like to create?

Welcome to the club.

Here’s the rejection letter Bono and U2 got in 1979.


The simple truth is that anything great always comes with great rejection.

You don’t get to be awesome without receiving awesome amounts of rejection.

The only books without 1 star reviews are the ones that were never finished.

Did you get rejected? Good, you just joined a prestigious club that includes Bono, me, and everyone else who ever did anything fun.

Long live rejection and the people who don’t stop in the face of it!
