Handling rejection

29 November 2010

'I always look back to that and tell people if I had given up then, if I had said well I tried it and I'm not good enough, it didn't work out, I would still be practising law right now... I think so much of whatever we do in life is about hard work and it's about luck, but I think hard work creates luck so you have two things that can control right there.It's about having faith in yourself, and keeping that faith, even when you're disappointed.'

Emma Giffin, author of Heart of the Matter in the Bookseller
