When People Reject You

How many times have you been told that you are not allowed to do this?

How many times have you been rejected for the interviews?

How many times have people denied your proposal?

A couple of times?

A number of times?

What do you do?

Let’s look at these individuals…

Jack Ma was rejected by Harvard 10 times. After applying in KFC, out of 24 applicants, 23 were selected, he was the only one.

Steven Spielberg was rejected from the University of Southern California School of Theater, Film, and Television three times.

Again, what do you do?

I just know one simple fact. And that is…

Keep moving forward.

Don’t take anything personally. If someone comes to you and says that you look weird like an alien. Keep calm and say gently, “Well. You look like a human.” People have rejected you several times. Prove them that you are something and they will regret tomorrow. Rejections happen. And they should. Because without getting the feeling being rejected, you would never realize the importance of your dreams. You would never feel the beauty which your dreams are carrying. Because people who reject you, don’t see what is inside your work. But you do.

Appreciate all rejections. They are very good to feel. Embrace them and move forward.
