How Many Times Will You Try Until You SucceedOne sure way to succeed is to keep trying, even if it seems like everyone has already rejected you. Successful entrepreneurs and inspirational leaders didn’t reach their goal the first time. Others were even rejected numerous times before they got to where they are now.

Don’t believe it? Let me cite some examples. Thomas Edison had to create 10,000 prototypes for electric light bulbs before he got the right one. Sylvester Stallone was rejected 1,500 times when he was selling the script and himself for the movie “Rocky.”

More success stories can be viewed on the infographic, San Francisco-based startup organization Funders and Founders made below.
