In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Jack Canfield stresses the importance of never giving up on your dreams. Don't anyone get in the way of your dream. Do whatever it takes — enroll in extra classes, get additional training — and go after your deepest passion.

Canfield shares how Catherine Lanigan handled rejection while pursuing her dream to become a professional writer. She was given feedback at school to move on from and instead become a nurse.

In time, though — close to two decades later — Lanigan discovered that letting herself get so dejected only held her back from creating great work. After meeting a professional writer later in life, she was able to push herself to write something that made the most of her passion and potential.
