Rejection is the obstacle and the obstacle is the way. We must detach rejection with feelings of self worth, but rather focus on improving our craft to be so good we cannot be ignored. This is the way.

I remember that rejection is the only thing you can count on in this business, and that the sting is worth the reward in the end.

For me, being in touch with my “why” is critical. I’m not doing this for other people, I’m doing this because it’s something I need to do. And like you said, Jeremy, it’s not connected to my worth. Knowing that helps me understand rejection is not personal.

I just assume I will be rejected and move on to the next project while I'm waiting for the rejection. Every day I wonder why I keep trying.

When sending out for any opportunity, my rules are “no strings attached” and “let me try and fly” ….this helps me just keep no matter if I receive Yes/No ? Because if I’m not flying, I’m grounded for better reason and best opportunities than the one I thought I could work on. Am I making even sense here!? I don’t know 🤷‍♀️
