At MediaTech Institute our definition of success is loving what you do and with multiple programs and disciplines we allow our students to chase their dreams in the exciting fields of computer animation, film and even mobile app programming in Dallas TX.
We live in a world where instant gratification seems to be everything. Sometimes, it seems that success is measured by how many followers you have on Instagram or what kind of car you drive. It sometimes feels that hard work, dedication and countless hours spent perfecting a skill or learning a new talent goes to the wayside when all it seemingly takes is having a famous last name or your own reality TV show to earn a living.
So, for the aspiring MediaTech recording engineer student, the hopeful film producer or the student halfway through our courses in mobile app programming in Dallas TX, how do you keep your sights on the prize: the prize of graduating, the prize of future innovation, the prize of landing your dream job? When you move into the professional world, how do you find your encouragement to keep pushing: keep pushing despite the failures, despite the rejections and in spite of the delayed gratifications? Respected filmmaker George Lucas put it best:
“The secret is not to give up hope. It’s very hard not to because if you’re really doing something worthwhile I think you will be pushed to the brink of hopelessness before you come through the other side.” (George Lucas)
It’s about perseverance. School can be rewarding, but it can also be challenging and tough. Meeting deadlines, sacrificing free time to perfect your latest assignment, sitting through hours of lectures and taking notes until your hand starts to cramp can all make you ask the question, “Is my dream truly worth it?”
We’re here to tell you: it is. And in case you needed a little more encouragement…
- Dr. Seuss’s first book was rejected by 27 different publishers. Throughout his professional career, he went on to win a Pulitzer Prize, two Emmy Awards, a Peabody Award and even a Hollywood Star.
- Stephenie Meyer, the author of the Twilight Saga, was rejected by nine literary agencies. Her current net worth is around $125 Million.
- Michael Jordan was cut from his school’s basketball team, but proceeded to take home six championships in his career.
- Thomas Edison was told he was not smart enough to learn. He went on to patent over 1000 items.
- Albert Einstein didn’t start reading until he was age seven and was even expelled from school. Eventually he won a Nobel Prize and is considered a genius.
- Dick Cheney failed out of Yale twice before becoming Vice President of the United States.
Don’t give up. If you have the dream, it will be worth every bit of hard work in the end. Against all odds, if you fail, if you are rejected, if you just don’t think you can see the dream through, keep going. Steve Jobs said, “Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.”
