We've all been rejected at one time or another. Whether, we'd like to admit it or not. Nobody really likes it but it is a part of life. It's easy to have hurt feelings and want to blame the other person. What's best is to admit your part in it, regardless of how small it may be. Here are three things you can learn from rejection:
- You Learn How To Not Take Things Personally. You don't need to over think everything. Remember, life is a numbers game. It's not always about what you could have done better. Sometimes, the problem really is with the other person. Perhaps, that person rejected you because they are in a complicated relationship. Maybe, you didn't get the interview because the person went with a friend. Try not to take everything so personally, this will only cause stress over situations you can't control.
- You Are More Secure With Yourself. Feeling secure with yourself is one of the best feelings. It's great when you can trust yourself. You aren't waiting for validation from everyone else. You trust your gut and your decisions. There are times when you need to make a decision quick. Sometimes, you just need to take a leap of faith.
- You Learn How To Move On. Sometimes it's best to just let go. This can actually feel really good. Don't think of it as giving up; just think of it as moving on. There is no sense in dwelling. This won't change anything. Nobody can predict the future. If you spend time doing this, it will only add additional stress to your life. Life is too short to fear rejection. Go after the things you want. Even if you don't like the outcome, you will learn a lot from the process. Now, take a deep breath, be courageous and stop letting fear hold you back from the things you want. For more help, please call me at (650) 892-0357 for a consultation.
