Your worth

Getting rejections for your work is part of the process for most writers. Even the best authors got rejections in the beginning.

Jilda and I pitched a song in Nashville many years ago and the guy who turned us down said, "Hey, don't feel bad, I passed on the million seller song "Wind Beneath My Wings."

It didn't help our feelings, but I think had we seen this little sign, it would have made us feel better.

  3. That statement is so true. Rejection can be so crushing if we take it personally. Often we are rejected by someone who has a narrow field of vision and it's his problem.
    Have a great day.
