It’s hard to keep reaching toward your dream when you’re faced with rejection at every turn. Every day, it seems, I’m getting rejection letters from jobs I’ve applied to… jobs I know I’m qualified for… jobs I know I would do good at. But it doesn’t matter what I know. The rejection letters keep coming, and I feel like giving up.
But if you look at the lives of so many famous people — from Albert Einstein to J.K. Rowling — you’ll see that they, too, faced disappointment and rejection over and over again. But from being the most recognized faces in cinema, sports, and literature, they’ve proven one big point: Don’t let a bunch of “Nos” get in the way of you pushing for what you believe in.
I’m holding on to that hope today, hoping that things will turn out Awesome.
