“Never give up. Failure and rejection are only the first steps to succeeding.”-Jim Valvano
I’ve never been the type to give up.
I know and understand that every opportunity may not be equal.
And that’s fine with me.
I also understand that failure and rejection come with the game.
I may be better at something than someone else is, or they could be better than me…
That’s just how life goes.
Knowing that I can work on things and get better at things is what sets me apart.
Someone else could make something look so easy, but when it’s your turn to try it you just can’t get it right.
Someone may say the same thing about you.
Some things in this world just aren’t for you.
If you don’t fail, you’ll think of it as easy that you never practice it again.
If you do fail, you get to practice more and more until you get it.
That is the difference.
Don’t stop trying just because you have what you want.
Rejection comes from another end.
You may be the best at what you do, but let’s say the person “judging” you rejects you...
For whatever reason.
Now, you question yourself…
What did I do wrong?
Am I not capable?
And either way, you may not even be the problem.
Dust it off.
Go for what you know.
You may need to just accept rejection, but don’t let that make you.
I promise you’ll be happier in the end if you just understand how this cruel world works.
Work hard for what you want, and you will get it.
Gotta take a risk to be the champion.
