In 2009, Brian was rejected by both Twitter and Facebook. Later that year he co-found WhatsApp, which was acquired by Facebook Inc. in February 2014 for US $19 billion. He was also formerly employed at Yahoo Inc.
What impressed me the most is not the money he made but his attitude about rejection. Made me think of the following quote by whoever said it first: “I am thankful to all those who said NO to me. It's because of them I did it myself.”
Kindness is a good quality but it's widely used as a tool to fool people and can horribly misrepresent someone's true quality. Loyalty on the other hand goes hand in hand with patience. Just wait long enough and you will find out who truly is your friend that means well. Real situations and time always expose fake people.
