PRESS THE RESET BUTTON ON REJECTION [EP 40]
Rejection is a natural, normal and unpleasant part of life. Nobody likes to be told “NO” especially when it’s something you really desire.
Most fear of rejection lies on the desire of needing approval from others and defining our self-worth based on that approval. Today I interview a guest who can shed some light on gaining a thick skin when it comes to rejection because her profession is basically made of hearing 10,000 no’s or you’re not good enough.
Today we have Melanie Chandra, actress, producer and mom who is sharing the wisdom she has learned from facing rejection in the entertainment Industry and how It’s helped her become mentally strong and build a thick skin.
This is a life-skill we ALL need to embody whether we are an actor or not- how do you get comfortable with hearing “NO” without It eroding your self-confidence and self-worth.
That’s what you’ll discover in this week’s episode.
