Had a bad casting or audition? How to turn Failure into Success
It’s the night before your big audition/casting. To family and friends, it’s just one of many. But to you, it’s everything! The creative industry is famous for being tough to crack, which would explain why a lot of people get caught up in the concept of their own failure.

Welcome failure with a positive outlook
Let your feelings about failure energise you. Let it make you stronger. Let it make you hungry for success. Let it be the motivation that gets you up in the morning. Positive energy is contagious. If a photographer has knocked you back for a modelling gig – and sees that your positivity and confidence remains strong – they are going to think more highly of you than someone who has met their rejection with hostility. The creative industry is a tight-knit community, so remember to make a positive impression no matter what the outcome is.

Learn from your own failures and that of your peers
Being self-aware is a highly respected quality everyone should practice. If you’ve been unsuccessful landing a photography contract, it’s worth taking the time to understand some of the things you might have done wrong. You may have handed your submission in late, or misunderstood the brief. We recommend keeping a creative journal. Not only will it be a great place to explore creative feelings, you can also reflect on the mistakes you made along the way.
Just like you, your peers will have a lot to say about success and failure. Don’t be shy to approach them for help and ask about the things that have helped or hindered their creative process.

Success is a numbers game
Never blow off an audition because you feel like you’re doing too many. You deserve to be seen. Putting yourself out there a 100 times over will get you a better result than if you did only once. Plus, you will learn a great deal more about your craft and the industry. Not to mention the valuable exposure you’ll receive. When that perfect roles comes along, it’s you who’ll be top of mind and first to call.
Remember that failure can be as empowering as it is demoralising, so get out there and be your best.

For every Kendall or Miranda that makes it down the runway at a Victoria’s Secret show, there are hundreds of thousands more models looking to make it in the industry. Modelling is a notoriously tough business and, if you’re not related to a Kardashian, the key to achieving supermodel status is often signing with the right agency that has the right connections with brands and designers. But like many industries that enable success based on who you know, this often means talented people are being left out of the picture.Read More
