Here’s a little food for thought on this Monday morning.
We can’t be scared to take initiative. We must be ready to be rejected. Above all, we have to take chances.
If you don’t take chances, you will never get rejected. Sure, rejection is a scary thing and yes, we are all scared of it. In the long run, rejection pushes us to our dreams and goals. Without rejection, would you be the best you can be? Take a look at this. It’s a rejection letter that Bono got back in 1979. What I am trying to say is, everyone has been rejected in some fashion or another, but it doesn’t stop you dead in your tracks. Thanks to this rejection letter Bono received, we are now graced with such ( dare I say it, even better) music than he was producing prior to 1979.
After listening to The Snap Judgement 2013 Look Back Special, it all dawned on me. If I want people to believe in me, I have to believe in myself. That also means you need to bet on yourself by going all in. Believing in yourself isn’t something that should be taken with a light heart, believing in yourself is a full-time commitment.
One segment in particular, How ‘Going For Broke’, Launched Homeboy Sandman’s Career talked about how Homeboy Sandman finally decided to take his music career full-time. First, his rhymes weren’t coming that expensive NYC rent, so he found himself staring down five grand in debt with an eviction a possibility. Homebody Sandman talks about how going for broke is all about believing in yourself before anybody else does.
After dragging my feet and having a ho-hum attitude towards my job search and current job situation, the perfect pep talk happened. This pep talk could not have occurred at a more perfect moment. Now, I cannot tell you the exact conversation, but let’s just say the following phrase sums it up, “It might take a year, it might take a day, but what’s meant to be will always find its way.”
I have faith that everything will work out exactly how it is supposed to. Things will all fall into place and everything will be great. But keep this in mind, in order for everything to work out (no matter how long it takes), you have to keep pushing, you have to be your biggest fan, and you have to get up every time after you’re knocked down.
Folks, don’t take little things for granted. One conversation could change everything – all you have to do is listen.
these words helped me and I hope they will help you, too.
I want to encourage you that you alone are responsible for this, not us. We were just a conduit for you to find your true self. After this adventure ends, don’t be afraid to trust yourself and believe in yourself. Whatever your dreams are, they are possible. You can do it!
