Cloudbusting: make it happen

But every time it rains,

You’re here in my head,

Like the sun coming out

Ooh, I just know that something good is gonna happen.

And I don’t know when,

But just saying it could even make it happen.

— Kate Bush, lyrics from Cloudbusting

Lately I’ve received a few very nicely worded rejection letters (emails actually). Hearing “no” doesn’t feel great initially, but it’s not as bad as you might think.

Strangely, rejection is  kind of empowering. These little setbacks don’t make me want to quit; quite the opposite they make me feel a little more fearless. Rejection brings out that inner voice that says: “I can do this”. It reminds me that success is the process of doing, not the end result.
