J. K. Rowling
The woman went through colossal damages in her life. Following the death of her mother, her relationship with her father also soared. In one year of marriage, she filed restraining orders for her husband and went into severe depression. She was a single mother, without a job. It was only the welfare benefits she and her five months old girl was living on. The clinical depression took her on the brink of suicide. She deemed herself as a total failure in her personal and professional life. But she didn’t give in. Amid depression, poverty and fear, she started writing her first novel and in just five years, her book turned out to earn several awards and its copyrights were sold to one of the biggest production houses of Hollywood. In a decade’s time, J.K Rowling became a billionaire, and she is the first woman writer holding this position. So what was it that took her from the verge of suicide and became what she is today? It’s her rock bottom that worked as a foundation of success for her. She rebuilt her life on the pile of failures. She let go of the negative beliefs of society and worked on the only thing that mattered to her. She believed in her big idea and old typewriter and continued to accomplish which very few people managed to do so. She didn’t indulge in self-pity and owned her mistakes and responsibilities. As she had nothing to lose, nothing to fear. It made her brave and fuelled her fire.
