J.K. Rowling

14 Dec

I really love JK Rowling, her story, her books, she just inspires me! Today I found this and I strongly felt to share it with you:

 

The success story of Joanne Rowling

Her success story has become a subject of public fascination.

In the end of 1999, two years after the publication of her Harry Potter, Joanne Rowling was officially a millionaires. Financially it was a remarkable five years journey which started from cashing social benefits cheques and ended with receiving royalties.

In 2008 Sunday Times Rich List ranked her as the twelfth richest woman in Britain. Forbes ranked Rowling as the forty-eight most powerful celebrity of 2007.

However, this financial part of J. K. Rowling biography does not cover the true story of Joanne Rowling. The most important journey was the journey of making mistakes and taking risks. Joanne admitted that she had been very much afraid of failure and risks when she left university. This was the reason that she did not pursue at that time her only ambition she had ever had, to become a writer.

“I was afraid to risk poverty and disillusionment and devote myself wholeheartedly to the only ambition I had ever had, to be a writer.”
– Joanne Rowling

When she became a single parent with no job and no money, Joanne realized that she had nothing to lose at all. This was the moment that she took a courage to find out her true value as a writer.
