After receiving a rejection a few months back, my agent tried to make me laugh by saying, she'll rue the day!
it worked, I did giggle.
But, it also made me think about how important it is to believe in ourselves, our work, our ability, our dreams.
As we step into this fresh new year -- brimming with ideas of how we will turn our dreams into reality -- let's remind ourselves
that we can do this
even if it is difficult
even if it requires sacrifice, time, change
even if a rejection or two sifts our way
We will just pick ourselves up, shake our fist in the air and say,
they'll rue the day they turned me down!
After all, even the Beatles got this rejection in 1962 - just 18 months before they debuted on The Ed Sullivan Show and sold over 2.6 million copies of I Want To Hold Your Hand in a two week time span:
"We don't like their sound and guitar music is on the way out" - Decca Recording Co.
wrong, wrong, wrong.....
I bet that decision maker at Decca Recording Co did rue the day.
Just some thoughts to help us steel our resolve in 2010. I sense good things on the horizon....what are you feeling today?
