We’ll keep this one short.
We swim in a sea of rejection. No matter how you want to look at the world, no matter how positive or negative a person you are, the fact remains, the sea is ugly.
Not trying to argue how ugly the world is so don’t get distracted. This simply means the world is full of people with “good opinions” that you should not always concern yourself with. There is rejection and combative attitude every which way you look.
You have to have passion. You’re going to get repeatedly knocked down, hard, and without even a glimmer of passion you will not survive. Something has to feed the fire. Passion is your fuel. It will prevail.
