So you didn’t book that job…and then the thoughts creep in, “I’m a failure.” I’ll never make it.” “Why bother.” “I suck.” “I’ll never make it.”

Well here are a few people who probably felt the same way….

FAMOUS “FAILURES”

Fred Astaire- after 1st screen test was told he couldn’t sing and could “dance a little”

Walt Disney- fired from his newspaper for lacking creativity and ideas

Albert Einstein- teacher said he was stupid was always “adrift in his own dreams

Marilyn Monroe- was dropped by 20th Century Fox because they thought she was “unattractive and couldn’t act”

Oprah Winfrey- fired from her T.V. reporting job because she was “not suitable for television.

J.K. Rowling- once almost penniless, divorced, depressed and rising her child alone

Ludwig van Beethoven- music teacher said “as a composer, he’s hopeless” AND he lost his hearing

Lucille Ball- drama instructors told her to look for a new profession

Elvis Presley- fired after one performance at the Grand Ole Opry after being told “you ain’t goin nowhere, son. You ought to go back to drivin’ a truck.”

Thomas Edison- fired from first two jobs for not being productive and made hundreds of unsuccessful attempts at inventing the light bulb

 

All these people made significant contributions to our world. Without them there would be no_______ fill in the blank. They changed the world and made it a better place for all of us.  And so can you. So don’t let those feelings and thoughts get in your way.  Keep going.

April, end of pilot season, is a good time to reassess what is working for you and what’s not.  Take an inventory and think about:

  1. How is my reel – is there something I can do to improve it or add to it?
  2. How are my headshots?  Check in with your reps and see if they think your headshots are working for you?
  3. Are you in class? Are you in the right class? Is your teacher and coach helping you move in the direction you want to go?
