When you are rejected, it hurts. It lowers your self-confidence, and often you start to doubt yourself. However it is natural to feel this way, you should learn how to turn it around and look at it from a different perspective.
Have you ever heard some of the most successful stories of a great people? They have been rejected so many times that you and I can hardly imagine it. They have reached the top only because every failure motivated them to push even harder.
Rejection is part of significant achievements and breakthroughs. In this article, I want you to realize that denial is one more step towards your dreams and a necessity in life. You need to get rejected and be turned down in order to become better and enjoy a victory.
Here are three ways which will help you to take an advantage of any rejection and make it your inspiration.
1. Recap everything and identify mistakes
Don’t criticize yourself, just recap the entire process (interview, business proposal, college application). Asking yourself right questions will help you determine the cause. In order to become better, you must work on yourself every single day. And being rejected is an excellent way to do it.
Once it is evident what mistakes you have made, take advantage of it and find a way how you can increase your value. Identifying the situation gives you a clear picture and open new options. How can you advanced in something if you don’t know what you do wrong?
2. Find new strategies and absorb every information
Once you identify the cause, consider the solution how you can make it better in the future. Being rejected is an opportunity for improvement. Do you need to take a course or finish your education? Do you need to practice more to have better results? You figure out what it is that will push you closer towards you goal.
No one said that great things come easy, but step by step it will unfold and become a reality. You can’t make a few negative responses stop you. Set up the right plan and strategies on how to achieve it. Accept it as a life advantage, not a barrier. The only person you compete with is yourself so don’t quit. #3 will help you handle a rejection with the proper mindset.
3. Convince yourself that rejection is good
No, I am not trying to lower your confidence, and I am not crazy. From my experience, I know that failure hurts like hell. I have come to an understanding that this is how it goes, and I can’t change it if I want to accomplish significant things in my life. So I knew I have to learn how to handle it. It all depends on my perspective and mindset.
The next time, when someone rejects you or turns you down, jump for joy. Be happy because every NO will lead you closer to YES. And you can make this process painless for yourself if you understand this concept. You will be rejected or maybe laugh at and considering crazy. It will happen no matter how much you try to avoid it. It happens when you want more from life. The question is: “How are you going to deal with it?”
