Let’s face it, rejection isn’t easy. Whether it’s personal or business related, rejection can make us feel defeated and bad about ourselves. I feel, though, that rejection of any kind can help us grow as individuals. Today, I’ll share tips on how to best deal with (and move past) rejection and some of my personal experiences with the subject — so that you, too, can find the silver lining when it happens to you.
You’ll also find out:
- A recent experience that Bret and I shared while traveling
- Bret’s story of major rejection while playing college football and how it, eventually, worked out in his favor
- Why it’s healthy to grieve in the middle of your rejection
- When rejection really hurts
- My rejection story — with teaching fitness classes — when I moved to Southern California
- Why you must ask yourself if there’s truth as to the reason why you’ve been rejected
- The importance of looking for the reason behind your rejection (and/or knowing there is one)
- Why when something doesn’t work out, it often means there’s room for something better
- Why you should make a list of all the things you’re grateful for due to your rejection
- Why one rejection (that felt horrible at the time) turned into, perhaps, my greatest win in the fitness industry
- What Stanford University researchers recently found re: beliefs about personality and how it correlates with feelings of rejection
- Why you need to plug into the people who light you up
