Learn to embrace rejection
Mentally prepare yourself for rejection- a lot of it. You MUST be able to handle having doors shut in your face without a second thought. Even the most stunning supermodels to ever walk the planet were told "NO." They were told "NO" multiple times, many ways, by countless people. Rejection is part of the territory. The sooner you not only understand but accept that, the better off you will be. Don't base your self-worth on appearance or anybody else's approval of you. Start practicing now: challenge yourself to shrug off any criticism you receive this week. See if it was easy or difficult. The harder it was, the more you need to grow a tougher skin. Are you offended that you were just told to grow tougher skin? If so, that's precisely the point! Start practicing the ability to let all criticism roll off your back! But don't worry, everybody is capable of learning this skill with enough practice. A good mental mantra to keep in mind when it comes to rejection is: "Every 'NO' is just one 'NO' closer to a 'YES.'"
