Rejection Doesn't Make You a Reject

I worked in the ad industry for many years. Too many years.

And in the ad industry, you rack up a fair number of rejections.

If you have a thin skin, you perish. If you have a thick skin, you flourish. And learn. And improve.

So the idea in this scamp is that you'd better be prepared for rejection and 'failure' in life if you want to excel in your chosen field.

    To be rejected is to be alive. Good to remember.

  2. The force of rejection can be redirected towards a better goal.
