more than 73 languages. She went throughout the various setbacks in her life and eventually reached her destination. Her book, Harry Potter series has earned over $400 million dollars in book sales and accrued over $20 billion through movie adaptations. But the succeed she has accomplished is not within an overnight; she had to go through a long and difficult road to be there. She had to face many grievances, failure in relationships, unemployment, and single mothers, but she crossed all of those steps in her life inspired herself keep on going along the way which she wanted the most in her life to be a writer.

Creating a book series wasn’t that easy as we have seen now, but it would have taken years of preservation to be here today. Rowling underwent to the numerous rejections but never gave up her hope and passion. She had to survive for the unemployment benefit of government. She was deprived of the love when she got divorced with her husband and she had become the single mother and only the provider to her infant. She didn't have a job, but she had to feed for the two mouths.

She had to go for great grievances while she was writing her first book of Harry Potter. She lost her mother and had to cope the biggest devastation in her life. She depressed and almost committed suicide, but never stopped her desire to come out. In order to take her out of that grumble, she took the job of teaching English in Portugal for a year. She had been still working on her book and set a goal of having her  first Harry Potter book. After her great loss, she dived into the characters and made the story of the tragedy of her own character.

She spent several times writing her books in the cafe while taking care of her baby. She used to go walking with her baby and would get a chance to write when her infant fell asleep. After completing the three chapters of her first book, she sent her manuscript to the several publishers, but got rejected every time. She sent 12 different publishers, but she received only the rejection message and almost lost her confidence. Finally, the editor of Bloomsbury Publishing sat down and read the manuscript approved to publish her first book only after his 8-year daughter was curious to read that manuscript. Her first novel was approved to publish, but with a warning. She was told that she should get a day job for her survival because she wouldn't earn that much  money from writing the children's books.

Everyone became wrong after once the Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone were published. The jobless single mother, living off unemployment benefits became the authors of all the time best selling books. She has become one of the richest people in the world and one of the first female authors to become a billionaire. She is one of the most influential women of the world who had gone various struggles and faced the challenges but never stopped doing what she intended to do and eventually became able to reach the peak.

 Life is that we never have the favorable situations all the time. We have to go on the battlefield to fight with the scarcity, to cope with the tragedy and much more, but should not give up the hope and we should keep on moving forward with positive thought and inspiration. The story of Rowling’s life and success is one of the mentors to be successful in life and she has influenced to the people in the world from her struggle and her continuous dedication what she wanted and what her passion was about.  She strengthens by herself against the several rejections that were what her work made her remarkable.

“ It is impossible to live without failing at something unless you live to cautions that you might as well not have lived at all- in which case, you fail by default.”- J. K. Rowling

We have to learn the lesson from her life even though we couldn't be the writer but we can set our own goal based on our interests, thought, and vision. Failure is one of the steps of success for tomorrow. If we fail today it should set us back again rather we should keep on moving forward with the hope of success and with a positive attitude to get done our passion for achieving what our goal we intend to have in our life
