“Rejection does not mean that you are not good enough. It simply means that the other person didn’t see what you have to say.”

We have all experienced rejection at some point in our lives. It could be a job interview or a romantic relationship, a sales pitch, or even educating yourself. It can come in many forms, but no matter how we deal with it, rejection hurts. It is by default painful and can cause a bruise to our egos. Imagine being asked to give a presentation after preparing for it for two weeks, only to be told that it was not good enough. Or being interviewed for a job and being told that “We chose to go another route”.

It is hard to feel not good enough, and this is what rejection can lead to. If it isn’t handled properly, it can destroy self-esteem and morals, as well as unsettle us and kill our potential.

Rejection is a normal human response. It can be detrimental to our overall health and quality of life to become too worried. It takes effort and time to prepare for a sales pitch. It takes mental toughness to watch your sales pitch get rejected. To succeed in the modern world of business, it is important to learn how to gracefully reject rejections.

If you are able to learn how to channel your negative emotions and the pain that comes with rejection, then rejection can be used to help you get to the next level. If you hear “We chose a different route” at a job interview, you may know deep down that this is something you are qualified for. But you don’t fit their story.

There are many complex decisions and personal convictions that go behind a corporate or individual decision. Without context, it is possible to never fully understand why we were rejected.

The way we deal with rejection is a reflection of our character, mental and emotional strength. There are many ways so that it can be used as a propeller to progress and eventually success. These are five tips to help.

1. Accept rejections.

Fear of rejection is real. Fear of rejection can stop us from expressing our ideas and creativity. Fear sets in as soon as we feel inspired to do something good. We start to see the many reasons why the idea we have isn’t going to work.

Fear of rejection is one the greatest obstacles to creativity and progress, so we need to be open for rejection. Acceptance of rejection eliminates fear about not having an idea come to fruition due to people’s actions or reactions.

2. Ask questions

It doesn’t always have to be about you when your idea or proposal is rejected. They probably didn’t want you at that moment. Every person you meet in life has a story. Behind every facade there may be real problems. These experiences and issues drive their decisions, and their reasoning.

Don’t take it personally if you don’t fit their story or their scripts. Sometimes it’s not about you. This doesn’t mean your ideas or you aren’t worthy. You should also ask why you were rejected. This will satisfy your curiosity and help you position yourself for future acceptance.

3. Don’t let your pain get the best of you

Personal experience with rejections has been a part of our life on numerous occasions. It hurts deeply and can be emotionally draining. It took us some time to realize that it wasn’t about us. They don’t see us or understand what we have to say. We can’t blame anyone for seeing things from their perspective. It is okay to feel pain. However, don’t let it get in the way of your dreams and never give up on them. Keep moving and use the pain to fuel your passion.

4. Future acceptance

If you are rejected because your ideas are not fully baked or you require additional training in your field of expertise, it’s important to obtain the training you need to be ready for acceptance. Sometimes, constructive criticism is all that’s needed to move us towards a better outcome.

5. Try again and again

It doesn’t really matter how many times someone falls, but what does matter is how many times they get up from the ground after each fall. It is important to get up again after you have overcome the rejection pain. You will be able to do this from a place of strength and knowledge.

Because their ideas were unrealistic, great people in history were often rejected by society and labeled crazy. They were driven to their goals and kept hope alive despite being rejected. History wouldn’t be kind to them if they quit. Many ideas were beneficial for mankind, but they didn’t get the chance to see the light of day because of fear of rejection or failure.

Rejection is the fastest way to destroy dreams and aspirations. Don’t let rejection ruin your dreams and aspirations. Face your fears head on.
