Failure is something every creative has to deal with, no matter how talented they are or how far along they are in their careers. Whether it is rejection or a personal project that did not work out as expected, failure is something we will always deal with and something that we should learn to embrace.

Coming to you from Film Riot, this important video discusses why you should embrace the prospect of failure. The simple truth is that even the best and most successful photographers and videographers face failure on a regular basis, and it is their ability to persevere through that that has made them successful. It can be particularly tough as a creative, as your work is often very much a personal part of you, and it can feel like a rejection of your work is a rejection of you. And while it is great to invest yourself deeply into whatever you do, it is crucial to be able to roll with the punches, to be able to take worthwhile feedback, and to constantly improve yourself. Do not take rejection personally; simply move on to the next opportunity. Check out the video above for lots of helpful advice.
