“I Was The Biggest Failure I Knew”- JK Rowling

Harry Portter Author, Jk Rowling had this to say about her journey to being a billionaire

“My name is JK Rowling… as soon as I knew who writers were, I wanted to be one. I’ve got the perfect temperament for a writer; perfectly happy, in a room making things up

The most traumatizing moment in my life was the day my mother died…and it shaped my whole life. I was writing Harry Potter the moment she died, so it’s not surprising that my books are largely about death. I know why Voldemort wants to conquer it. We’re all frightened of death…

After she died, I moved to Portugal to try to cope with the grief. Took up a job teaching, fell in and …out of love. I had a miscarriage, got married and gave birth to my daughter, Jessica. But my marriage lasted a mere 13 months and then I was a lone parent, jobless, and as poor as it is possible to be in modern Britain without being homeless

I had just three chapters of Harry Potter when I moved back to Britain…By every usual standard, I was the biggest failure I knew.

It took me seven years to complete the first Harry Potter book- ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s stone’ and it was rejected twelve times by top publishing houses in Britain and I was told it would never sell…especially if kids knew a woman had written it. I had to initialize my name to give the book a fighting chance

Today, all seven Harry Portter books have sold over 450 million copies, been made into movies and keeps earning far more than I ever dreamt”.

Jk Rowling is estimated to be worth a little less than A Billion Dollars. She has made £526.54 per word written in the Harry Potter books

6 Things You Should Stop Expecting from Others

I am Strong; But I am Tired

I am strong…But, I am Tired

I am tired of wiping my own tears

I am tired of being responsible for everyone. I want someone to tell me “relax, I got you”

I am tired of changing my own bulbs

I am tired of being there for everyone while I get half the effort in return

I am tired




The other day, I got back home from vacation and everything was as I left it. Plus, the gas had finished and my help was waiting for me to get back before she could refill. I got in my car to go find gas at 9pm. On my way, it just felt a little too much so I cried to God. “Lord I’m tired of doing everything myself…I need support”

And I heard a voice in my head “I have not made you a weakling. This is one of my gifts to you, your strong-will”. I was at the traffic light at this time so I pressed down my horn in frustration…”commonnnnnn. I don’t want to be strong all the time” I screamed at God “I am tired now. I want to rely on someone…sometimes”

Silence…

Sigh…

I bought the gas, got home, had dinner and showered

I AM TIRED. BUT, I AM STRONG. So, I’ll sleep, get my strength back and tomorrow, I’ll wake up with a tremendous will to fight. I will stay the path, keep my head high and keep going
