*More About This Episode* I've Failed, What's Next: Gaining Resiliency in Your Career
How resilient are you? As a creative person or a leader – your ability to be resilient and keep going in the face of failure can equal success in the long run. Here’s 5 tips to help you succeed.
- Don’t overthink the failure. Whether you’re an actor who didn’t get the role you auditioned for or a filmmaker whose pitch fell flat, you may never know what went wrong. Don’t overthink it; move on.
- Don’t take it personally. Try to separate the failure of your project from who you are as a person.
- Get objective advice. Get a third-party objective with the maturity and professionalism that you can trust.
- At the moment of rejection, keep a cool head. If possible, see if you can ask questions about what you could have done better. That information you acquire can help set you up for future success.
- Don’t let rejection or failure derail your dream. Your career is much bigger than any single project. You never know when tweaking a concept could work for something else.
- Should I have a day job? You would be in good company with the many famous creative people who have had day jobs.
- Create a daily ritual around your work. Find a place, schedule a time and get to work.
- Understand the power of your story. Your failure does not define you.
