This video is about rejection. It's short and clear!
Are you feeling rejected by a friend who has moved on, a date who has lost interest, or a bank that refuses to give you a loan?
If you don't understand rejection it can be devastating. If you do, rejection may be uncomfortable but it doesn't stop the flow of your day or your life.
Read on for tips that can help you bounce back from feelings of rejection:
Be gentle with yourself.
Weather you need a job or want a date, the "no" word can throw you off your center. Don't take it personally. Give yourself a break. Listen to music, take a nap, go for a walk. Change your emotional state.
Create a positive story.
Watch your negative self-talk after you are rejected. You'll find yourself saying, "I'm not smart enough, good enough or special enough."
Train yourself to believe that there is something better for you. Expect the best.
Everyone gets turned down.
It's not about you. It's about the timing, the position, the question or the circumstances. You can't see the big picture. You have no idea what's really going on.
Don't focus on rejection.
Don't dwell on it, don't over analyze it, and don't over talk it to others. It is what it is. Ruminating over your loss is a waste of time and energy. It blocks solutions.
Be here now.
Stay in the present moment. Stay out of the pain of the past or fear of the future. Breathe. Smile.
Let it go. Relax. Try something different. When you catch yourself falling back, remind yourself that you're moving forward.
If you didn't prepare, if you showed up late, if you behaved badly, forgive yourself. Figure out how to do better the next time. Then do it!
It's an opportunity to grow.
Rejection can make you stronger, wiser, and tougher. What did you learn from the experience? What is your lesson?
Seek out rejection.
When you dream big and dare to do the unthinkable you will be rejected more often. For every no you receive, you're closer to your yes.
Look for new opportunities.
Remain optimistic. When one door closes a window opens.
Be Bold, ask again and ask often.
When someone tells you "no," nothing has changed. You're in the same position you were in before you asked.
When you shift your perception like this it gives you the momentum to keep asking. Think of rejection as an effort instead of failure.
The mark of an Authentic Life
is when we are no longer
willing to contain our Greater Self
just to avoid discomfort.
Your life has a Higher Purpose
than seeking approval.
If you offer your life
to your Grandest Vision,
it will free the Genius with you.
Can you feel the urge to offer more? ~ Josh Cohen

Oh well…so what…next! I love this, Tess. I also like that you said, “If you aren’t being rejected, you aren’t moving forward.” I think that’s so important because it takes us beyond just having a way to deal with rejection if it happens. This statement tells us to actually get out there and take chances, fully embracing the FACT that rejection will happen. And we will survive.
