How To Deal With Rejection
“I think all great innovations are built on rejections.” Louis Ferdinand Celine
When you know that you have something to give and share with the whole world, something that is so bigger and so powerful that words can’t even describe it, but you just can’t seem to find a way to put that something into practice, because, whenever you try, you meet with rejection, you meet with failure and defeat, how do you respond to that? Or maybe I should ask a different question. Do you react, or do you respond?
Do you start crying, telling yourself that you are no good, that you will never turn your dreams into reality, eventually falling into depression, and blaming your parents for not raising you properly, your teachers for not insisting on developing the right skills and talents, your stupid and fat genes, the environment you live in, your friends, the government, etc., or will you tell yourself: “These people have no clue what I’m all about. These people have no idea how much I can offer and how great I am! They are not ready to see so much greatness! I believe in myself, I believe in my dreams, and I will never stop until I make them all become reality. I will follow Winston Churcill’s advice, and I will never, never, never give up!”
Use the energy you get from being rejection, to fuel your dreams. Yes, you heard me. Go from feeling frustrated, from feeling down, from feeling depressed, to feeling excited, to feeling powerful and more confident than ever. Correct your posture, get your chin up, look the world straight in the face, and you will realize how, the moment you change your physiology, your state of mind will change, and your whole energy will go from low to high. It’s that easy.
It’s this or that. You can either get depressed, allowing the opinion of a few people to decide your future, to decide whether you are good for something or not, or you can take a deep cleansing breath, pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and keep on moving, keep on working on making those dreams reality. It’s your choice. You decide!
