Rejection. Yeah, the ability to get over it may be the single common denominator for all the movie stars, novelists, etc that we see. I know that I have posted this here before, but my favorite piece of trivia from last year was this: after receiving over 30 rejections for Dune, Frank Herbert's masterpiece was finally printed by Chilton's. You know, the automotive repair guide. JK Rowling had 40+ agents and publishers reject her. And she was all lined up to have the top four NY Times best sellers when the Times decided she was too much and created a children's book list and relegate her to it. And yet, so much of writing and acting and producing is a crap shoot. I was forced to watch some netflix PoS called Christmas Inheritance over the break. How in the world did this thing get made? Dumb luck. Emphasis on the dumb.
