Don't you just hate when you wake up with a song stuck in your head? I'm listening to the chorus of 'Tub Thumping' over and over and over... Ad infinitum. "I get knocked down, but I get up again. They're never gonna keep me down..." At least it's a positive message.
And it's something we all need to remember. In this business there are likely to be a whole lot of knockdowns. After a while, you're going to feel like a hack boxer in the ring with Joltin' Joe Frasier, and you're going to want to just lay there so the beating will stop.
Don't do it. The minute you give up, you're giving in. You're letting the rejections win. You're allowing them to keep you down. And whether you believe it or not, you're stronger than that.
