How To Deal With Rejection
The 'I will teach you to be Rich' blog. Living with rejection influences my life and increases negative energy. It’s kind of fun to release negative energy in new and exciting ways. However, rejection is a concern for everyone when submitting an artistic work for consideration. Psychology Today reminds rejects to fight fear and keep trying. Go Beyond The Blue Kite. Sometimes it works.
When I went zip lining in Los Cabos, I fought a fear of heights. When I got stuck and dangled over the canyon looking down with acrophobia, I believed my amigo would get me down safely and he did. I got down safely to the bottom of the canyon uninjured. But what if I wasn't his amigo?
Sometimes my greatest fears need to be released through writing out imagination and gritty stories that will open dialogue and get people talking about relevant issues facing communities today.
A recent rejection letter stated that publishing is a matter of taste and my work didn’t represent their taste. Another rejection letter claimed my work is a bit too dark. I’m currently reading Trainspotting; and according to The Guardian, Irvine Welsh “never even had to find an agent; the first big London publisher he submitted Trainspotting to snapped it up, and his publishers have been happy to print pretty much whatever he writes ever since.”

Every year I hear words get so overused, like selfie or twerk, and it just sounds dumb. A lot of times, real words get stupidly overused and they become totally meaningless. Whenever I hear someone say actually really fast and repeat the word so many times it actually sounds like it’s pronounced the same as the name Ashley. I want to correct people and tell them my wife’s name is Jodie and not Ashely, and actually my book can help people understand street drugs are wrong and mental illness needs to be treated, but whatever.
