"There's never gonna be a yes for everything," he stated, before explaining: "I don't think anyone is brilliant enough to hear the answer 'yes' for every idea or everything that they try."

He reasoned: "I just think that's being realistic," as he gave fans some thoughtful advice about rejection.

The Good Morning America host said: "But when you do get a lot of no's, and when you do get maybe one yes, maximize that one yes. Do your best at it because at the end of the day, you have to look at yourself with pride, and [know] that you put everything that you had into the opportunity you were given."
