Even the most talented people may not get it right the first time.
In a 1995 interview ex-Beatle Paul McCartney said he once wrote a song with the first line “Scrambled eggs, oh my baby how I love your legs.”
Have you ever heard that song?
Not likely. McCartney tossed those words and wrote, “Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away.”
Since then, “Yesterday” has played on the radio more than any other record in history. “Yesterday” also happens to be McCartney’s favorite song.
The difference between failure and success – between “Scrambled Eggs” and “Yesterday” – is persistence. (1)
