Dear Friends,

Handling Rejection

This past week was a tough one. I got REJECTED! Prepared and prepared...was confident and ready. Yet although I was a 'shoe-in' for the job, I received the proverbial reject letter in the mail. Talking about a Punch-in-da-Gut!

Inevitably, at one time or another, many of us will experience some form of rejection. Mine was that of a job...yours? Maybe it was rejection by an object of affection (boy/girl), a client or customer chose another product or service. Or how about being rejected by a college or university?

I wish I had some magic-bullet advice for handly rejection--alas, I don't. No one likes being rejected. Especially ME! But I will say this, rejection only defeats us if we choose to be defeated.

Another way of looking at this is that rejection is a natural part of growth. What do we remember most about ourselves? Is it the Good-to-Great experiences or the truly awful-sucks-why-me? experiences? The latter, I presume. Rejection can be a blessing.

As for me, I'm stepping up my game. An additional certification, a new suit, and more video interview prep. Next time I interview, the job will be mine. How about will you handle rejection and turn a negative into a positive?
