When you are trying to make it in the entertainment industry, whether it be music, acting or any other form of entertainment, it is never going to be easy or straight forward. Over the years you could be faced with more than a small amount of rejection, which could leave a person questioning their chosen career path, even considering giving up on their dream.
It is how a person deals with rejection which will help to mould them as a person and pave the way of their career. Rejection is never easy to take but, rather than letting it consume you, it is always better to take it on the chin, learn from it and come back stronger, making you want to achieve that dream so much more.
One such star who lives by this rule is the young and talented actress and singer Bridgit Mendler, who has claimed that facing rejection spurred her on to try even harder. Mendler explained, "I appreciate having gone through that process [of auditioning and getting rejected], because it makes you want what you want that much more and get better at what you do."
Bridgit Mendler plays the role of Teddy Duncan in the hit Disney series Good Luck Charlie, where she has appeared in 98 episodes of the show. Good Luck Charlie will air its series finale later in the month.
So, if you are someone who is struggling to make it in the entertainment industry just remember, even some of the biggest and best stars have faced rejection in their time. Never give up! Chase your dream!
