“Chicken Soup For The Soul” was rejected by a 144 publishers. 144 publishes said, “We don’t want to publish your collection of short stories. The title’s stupid… Chicken Soup For The Soul… What does that mean? People don’t buy collections of short stories…There’s never been a successful chain of doing that.”

So, literally, we spend 14 months trying to find a publisher. We go to New York with our agent, and eventually our agent gave the book back and said, “I can’t sell this”.

So — we went to the National Book Sellers Association Convention down in Anaheim. We went from booth to booth to booth for 3 days. And there were 4000 publishers represented there. And we go, “would you publish our book? Would you publish our book? Would you publish our book?” And we got “no, no, no, no!”

It was late on the third day that a little publisher from Florida (after we had gotten a 144 rejections) said, “we’ll read it”. And then they said, “How many copies do you think will sell?” After that they said, “ya we’ll buy it”. After a couple of weeks later they said, “we’ll publish it”. And they said, “maybe 20,000 if we’re lucky”. And we said, “our goal is to sell a million and a half in a year in a half”.
Now, have you ever told someone your dream and have them laugh out loud at you?
He laughs out loud!

Now, if we had said “give up” after a 100 publishers had said no, I wouldn’t be standing here today. You know, that wouldn’t have happened…
You’ve gotta be willing to persevere. Because we didn’t take no…
See… When the world say’s “no”… you say “next”.
Let’s practice that… If I say no, you say……. NEXT.
Absolutely! There’s only about 5 or 6 billion people out there you can go and ask, right?
There’s over 4000 publishes just here in the State of California.
So – what we have here is this “endless possibility”. But you have to persevere. This is if the universe tests our commitment.
And so, today, we have 144 titles in print, sold over a hundred and fify million copies, we’re in 47 languages, and over a billion dollars worth of Chicken Soup For The Soul books have been sold worldwide.
If you’re willing to decide what you want… Believe it’s possible… Consciously envision the future… Feel the feelings that what it would feel like if you were to achieve this goal… You can have anything… And then — you take ACTION. Both obvious actions and inspired actions.
You Can Do Anything!
