#7: Rejection Ain't Nothing but a Word

TV trailers + cosplayers + more

Hey you!

Has failure been kicking you in the butt lately? Me too babe, me too. To get out of my rejection rut, I gained inspiration from some of my favorite success stories. Although rejection sucks, a lot, it’s a part of the process. The only way to success is through failure.

Don’t let the fear of failure keep you from putting yourself out there. Or, if you’re a Cinderella Story fan like me take inspiration from this Babe Ruth quote, “Don’t let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.”
