Facing Rejection as an Actor:
On a Wednesday night in the middle of summer, I didn't quiet expect the message I saw upon opening my email. Especially shy a few hours after I had just found out I was cast as a lead in a new Independent Feature Film, being shot in Chicago this summer. To be frank, I was on cloud 9, because I needed the good news that day. Though I was experiencing a moment of happiness and accomplishment, that all went out the window as I read the words, "You are unfortunately being dropped from your talent managers roster". If you're an actor reading this one day, you know how terrifying receiving those words can be. I sat there for a few minutes, letting the words I just read, register. As artists, we face rejection on a constant basis, but this rejection somehow seems different. What will it mean for my career? How long will it be until I am able to obtain a new manager? All of the negatives began to pollute my thoughts. Trust me, I vented to some actor friends of mine and they reassured me that everything will be ok. Sometimes, that's all you really need to hear. I've learned that rejection is simply apart of life, but what I've also learned to do: Take rejection, as an opportunity. More than often, we're so prone to jumping straight to the negatives-allowing ourselves to fall into a place of discouragement and complacency. Rather than allowing ourselves to be victims of defeat, change your paradigm!
Maybe we face rejections because:
A.) God has something better.
B.) God is trying to teach us something.
C.) God could be protecting us.
Rejection isn't always a bad thing. so steer away from becoming a victim of it. Take advantage of the opportunity to build character, grow and look forward to whatever comes next.
