Rejection happens frequently, but as a person with a disability, it’s happens daily. I smiled while thinking back about yesterday, the initial shock of hearing the word “Declined” was devastating, in that moment my life came to a dead end. Shattered. Yet today, I’m right back to the drawing board… mentally strong and ready to grow stronger and become better.
In business especially the Corporate World, you are up against the best of the best. Whether it’s applying for the job that just became vacant at your workplace or bidding for a tender, there’s competition in every corner just waiting to knock you out.
Ever notice how being turned down stops some people from trying again, while others bounce back from rejection stronger than before? Rejection stings, no doubt.
Rejection is not only about love, it also includes being excluded from a social engagement, or isolated during a group conversation, it hurts. The way you choose to respond to rejection, however, could determine the entire course of your future.
Steps I take to overcome rejection:
Yesterday seemed gloomy, hurt and crushed. I woke up with a fresh new perspective.
You are not alone, I’m right beside you every step of the way. Use rejection as an opportunity to move forward with more wisdom.
