All of us face rejection. It's part and parcel of being an artist but if you've been experiencing a lot of it it can eventually take its toll and leave us feeling doubtful about our abilities and our future.
Turn rejection around and have it work in your favour.
1) How could you have done better? There is always room for improvement.
2) Do you need to enroll in a class or on a course to sharpen your skills?
3) Are you aligned with what you want to do? Check in, do you still love what you are doing or is it time for a change?
The other thing to know is that rejection can often be our saving grace leaving us space for something better to come to us.
Earlier this year I auditioned for a West End play. The play would have taken up my summer, I loved the script but in the end I didn't get it. Six weeks later I was offered a job to direct a play in the United States where I am right now and I love it. I've been here throughout the summer and have been having a blast. So that rejection ensured I was free to do my first directing job over here.
Rejection can often be a redirection!
When you change the way you look at things, a whole new world of possibilities opens right up!
Make rejection work for you!
