Bummed you didn’t get the job? What do you do if you go after Disney or Netflix and they don’t go with you? All you do is learn the moral from it and focus on the great future you’re going to have. This is called failing forward, when you have a vision and keep things in their proper perspective.
Don’t take it to heart when you don’t get a job. You don’t know the reason why you didn’t get it. It’s not about you. The film industry is full of people who are fun loving and exciting to work with. Keep your eye on the future, because you never know what opportunity will be coming next. Maintaining a good attitude and a positive outlook on your career are essential. With the right energy, other opportunities will come up.
You can find jobs when you’re excited. When you’re excited and happy around other people, other people are excited and happy around you.
So, when you’re feeling bummed out, think about a time in your past when you felt excited. When you think about times that you felt excited, your whole energy changes. Take the time to do it right now and you’ll see how much it changes how you think and feel.
Ask yourself empowering questions. These are questions you ask yourself, that you’ll answer in the affirmative. Do you want to work in the film industry? Yes. Are you smart enough to do the job you’re going for? Yes. Have you gotten jobs in the film industry before? Yes. These questions boost your morale and change your entire state so that you project happiness out into the world.
A-List mentor Crystal remembers not getting a Marvel pilot. She was certain she was going to get it, but she didn’t. The Marvel pilot was for one month. She was pretty sad about it, but it didn’t end her career. Shortly after that, she got booked for a three month reality TV show as a production assistant. She met people and that led to more opportunities.
You just don’t know where things will lead. You can wind up in NY or LA and connect with a celebrity.
When your mental state is great, people are drawn to you. The film industry is largely built on relationships. You get jobs through the friendships you make on set. That’s how it happened for Crystal. She kept a positive outlook. When she was on the reality TV show, she made connections that helped her career.
Feel empowered every day.
