Meryl Streep - "This was me on my way home from an audition for King Kong where I was told I was too “ugly” for the part.
This was a pivotal moment for me. This one rogue opinion could derail my dreams of
becoming an actress or force me to pull myself up by the boot straps and believe in myself. I took a deep breath and said
“I’m sorry you think I’m too ugly for your film but
you’re just one opinion in a sea of thousands and I’m off to find a kinder tide.” Today
Meryl Streep has 18 Academy Awards. Moral- Never ever give up on your dreams.
Only you know your true worth.
All of us in life have had and felt rejection. In the arts, sports, etc.
But as the saying
goes: Reach for the moon, if you happen not to get there you are still
amongst the stars.
My future begins every morning when I wake up.
- Miles Davis
