No doubt about it, rejection hurts. It’s the moment when you’ve taken a risk to be vulnerable in some shape or form and you are met with the answer, “No”. You made a courageous act to put yourself out there and it didn’t go your way. Now what???
Allow yourself the space to process the feelings you are experiencing. Feel the embarrassment filling your cheeks with blood and making you blush. Feel your heart beating out of your chest. Feel you body tense with anger. The energy is there and you can not sweep it under the rug.
How do you shift your energy from rejection to opportunity?
- Learn from it!
- Embrace rejection and see it as a porthole to your growth and success.
- Every time you are rejected you are one step closer to your dream.
Thomas Edison Failed 999 times before inventing the light bulb…just think how dark our lives would be if he decided not to try again?!
Have the courage to keep trying. Have the courage to risk being vulnerable again and again and again. Vulnerability is the birthing ground for change, innovation and creativity-get comfortable in your vulnerability and watch how quickly your life changes.
