Since people in social media tend to see only the successes

Since people in social media tend to see only the successes, because that’s what people choose to post, here’s what really happens behind the curtain: Today I received 3 rejection emails from universities around the U.S. for coaching jobs I have applied for. I have lost count of the number of total rejections I have received in the last few months. I am not posting this to get pity or for people to say, “It’s their loss,” which I already know it is, but rather to be transparent and to show that even successful people get rejections and have failures. The reason this happens is because we cannot control the decisions that others make. All we can do is show people the value of what we have to offer, show how it benefits them, and hope they can see the value. But oftentimes, they do not, so we need to find another way and another path.

  1. I got rejected from an exhibit in Brooklyn yesterday. was my first reaction; then I said to myself, “F them! Their loss.”

    1. On another note, I got accepted to an exhibit I really hoped to get into on Monday, too. Ups & downs in the creative world! Just can’t let the downs overcome the joys of the ups! (I have to remind myself of that).
