24. Robin Sharma
The famous author has sold over 15 million copies to date. However, there was a time when an editor blatantly told him that he should look for a different calling.
His book ‘The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari’ is one of the most famous self-help books of all time. However, this book is also in the list of one of the most rejected books by publishers of all time.
After listening ‘NO’ from numerous publishers, Robin chose to self-publish. In no time, the book was breaking all records. Robin says, “A cliche I run my life by: Don’t Give Up. Ever!”
No matter how hard the going gets, one must trust their gut and keep walking against all the odds.
