Elizabeth Gilbert's TED Talk, Coping With Success

By Carleigh Lowe Monday, May 5, 2014

Writer Elizabeth Gilbert wasn't always the bestselling author of Eat, Pray, Love—she once struggled to get her book published while working as a diner waitress. In this TED talk, Gilbert recalls how she was devastated by rejection letters from publishers before her book eventually found a home and went on to sell millions of copies worldwide.

Following the huge success of her novel, Gilbert says she still identified strongly with her former identity, and found success disorienting. Gilbert talks about how she feared her next book would be disappointing to fans, and bait for critics, of Eat, Pray, Love, and she considered giving up writing to move to the country and raise corgis.

Instead, she went on to write several more books and continues to be a successful writer. In the video, Gilbert discusses how she learned to carry on with her work and stop worrying about the outcome. Her tips are a great reminder for any entrepreneur.
