6 Celebrity Rejection Letters to Remind You to Never Give Up on Your Dreams

Rejection can be devastating.  You work your heart out, you follow your dreams, you fall flat on your face.   Someone in an a higher position may make a huge judgement on you based on a small amount of information.   The truth is, they don’t know you.  They don’t know what you are capable of.  And they don’t know the will and determination you have to succeed.  They make a simple judgement or decision that may halt you in your tracks… but don’t despair!   Pick your self back up, regroup, work harder, keep moving forward.  Climb, jump, run, or fly over that wall, because at the end of the day, it’s only one opinion.  One opinion out of billions.  For that one person who tells you that you can’t, there may be 100 people who believe that you can.  And you n...

Lion, Tiger, Bear, Oh My! – A set of most unlikely friends

A lion, tiger and bear cub were rescued years ago from drug dealers that abused them.  They needed special care and even surgery to get well and were all brought to an animal sanctuary for recovery.  Cubs tend to not have the fierce instincts of their adult counterparts and all 3 cubs were placed together in the same pen.  They became fast friends… completely inseparable. As they grew older, handler...
