How to Rise Up After 10,000 "No"s

 

When your living is to hear the word "No," how do you find the strength to keep persevering? Actor Matthew Del Negro (Scandal, The Sopranos) and podcast host of 10,000 "No"s has spent his entire career in the cycle of chasing auditions, landing amazing roles, returning to rejection, and holding faith that the next opportunity will eventually come. He shares how he stays both hopeful and humble, how to put your best foot forward at any casting or pitch session, and why believing you are enough is the most important step towards achieving greatness.

  1. Sometimes our biggest assets are our biggest liabilities.
  2. Follow your gut when it tells you to quit something that doesn’t feel right.
  3. Set up a sustainable infrastructure so you can take the dream opportunities, even if they don’t pay well.
  4. Don't blame the business. You chose it. Every business is a tough business.
  5. You will be told “No” for a living. But build faith that another chance will come up. And when it comes, be prepared to show up at the plate.
  6. Give yourself the opportunity that no one else will give you. Challenge yourself and ask yourself: “Can I pull this off?”
  7. Whether you’re going into an audition, or pitching your product - prepare. Have a vision, but don’t hold onto it too tight. Make it your goal to connect with the people in the room.
  8. Reframe each setback as an opportunity to learn. And then keep moving forward.
  9. The greatest actors know that they are enough. Remind yourself that you are too.
  10. Take a deep breath. Take one step. People will come out to help you. But it’s up to you to take those steps first.

  1. Don’t assume you know what people want. Ask them.
  2. It’s not enough to just make the community. Pay attention. Care about them.
  3. Give away 90% of your best content for free. Sell the other 10%.
  4. Engagement is QUEEN.
  5. There is no magic number.
  6. Good decisions aren’t made out of desperation. It’s worth building a runway before you fully screw the 9 to 5.
  7. Pre-sell your course. Build an audience who will buy it.
  8. Don’t beat yourself up for having doubts. Everyone second guesses themselves.
  9. We assign the negative meaning to our thoughts - but it doesn’t have to be that way. Push through the BS and on the other side is where all the magic happens.
  10. The vanity numbers don’t matter. It’s all changeable. Stop the comparisons, and focus on your process.

  9. Focus on how to live, instead of everything that’s wrong.
  10. When you’re stuck, just start walking somewhere, even if you don’t see the light. Do something different, and see where that leads you.

  1. Follow your curiosity. Figure out what you want to do all day and what you want to be known for.

  7. The most important meeting of the day is your meeting with yourself.
  8. If you can dream it, plan it, and put it into action - it doesn’t mean you’re taking a slice from everyone else.

TAKEAWAYS FROM THIS EPISODE:

Jeff G Real Artists.jpg
  1. You can do the thing you love, but if you want to make it a business you must adopt disciplines that go beyond the hobby.
  2. Build the bridge instead of taking the leap.
  3. Before telling your life what you'll do with it, listen to it tell you who you are.
  4. Be willing to be the apprentice before trying to become the master.
  5. Pivot around the obstacles instead of trying to run through it. Let failures be the sign posts that redirect you along the journey.
  6. It's not about being the most talented. It's about knowing what the market wants.
  7. Great art starts with copying, but it doesn't end there.
  8. Be stubborn on vision, be flexible on details.
  9. Cultivate patrons. Do the work, then reach out and say "Thank you for X. It helped me do Y. What about Z?"
  10. Find out what you really want and how that aligns with who you really are. Don't get trapped being a success at the wrong thing.
  11. Start the race knowing that you're already enough. Once you win the race, you can either keep moving the finish line - or keep running just for the fun of it.
