Sidney Poitier failure is the doorway to greatness

After his first audition, Sidney Poitier was told
by the casting director, “Why don’t you stop
wasting people’s time and go out and
become a dishwasher or something?”
Poitier vowed to show him that he could
 make it, going on to win an Oscar and
become one of the most well-regarded actors
 in show business today.
