How to deal with rejection

We all need to learn how to deal with rejection

Rejection is something we all face in life. In many ways.

Everyone has experienced an unrequited love or a job they didn’t get. We build these things up in our minds so that when they don’t pan out it hurts.

The feeling of rejection is the ego realising that it’s not all it thought it was.

Get used to it for everyone experiences rejection. And not just losers. Learning how to deal with rejection is part of life. In fact all successful people have experienced a great deal of rejection. Failure in some way or other almost always comes before success.

Next time you are rejected in some way remember to see it as this – a stepping stone to future successes.

For that is what it really is.
