How To Benefit From Rejection

Success, rejection, hardships, are all part of the same journey….the journey which makes you strong, bold and brave enough to rise above all…

What is rejection? It's merely the act of not accepting, believing, or considering something. But because of human nature, we always want to benefit from something we have so why not rejection, why not consider it beneficial?

It's like to consider rejection in a way that why you were rejected and what did they see in you that you couldn’t see before and how to improve that very unseen quality and rise, succeed and overcome rejection by proving them wrong. It will keep you motivated for a long term and help you to achieve your goal as well.
Rejection in my personal case has taught and benefited me a lot. During my present year class 10th I missed my school, my academics, my tuitions and other classes to participate in the YTBC global business challenge organised all over world where I got selected among 7000 teams and solo reached the top 500. I was pretty excited to clear round 2 and to go for the last round, but guess what even though after a lot of preparation I still couldn’t make it. I did suffer on my studies in those months but after a lot of thinking I realised that why not benefit from it? 

If you look closely, at Elon Musk’s career its actually filled with rejections, just as Alibaba’s Jack Ma one of the richest man in China, who faced rejection at every step in life…

Still these people did what they wanted even after they had faced enough rejection which gave them more motivation as to how to improve their ideas… and they started to think, focus and determined more towards their aim…

Rejection. Losing. Failure. Nobody strives for them. No athlete sets out to lose, no entrepreneur’s goal is bankruptcy. But as if an act of divine mercy, there’s positives to be found in the negatives. It's important to keep rejection in your professional life and never ever take it personally. Rejection takes place for a reason. Not everyone can see your real worth, and there’s always an opportunity to improve and become worthier.

The woman with a net worth of $2.9 billion dollars, Oprah Winfrey's tragic past didn't stop her from becoming the force she is today…

There are many more famous personalities like J.K. Rowling, Bill Gates, Thomas Edison, Stephen King, Abraham Lincoln, Michael Jordan…this list goes on and on…

I believe that rejection is a blessing because it's the universe's way of telling you that there's something better out there.
It's quite simple to benefit from things that demotivate you such as rejection. The moment you change your perspective of seeing things in a different way, at the same moment same happens with things and how they affect you. 

Like for me, I realised that how much I had learnt in the journey of my business challenge, the preparation, the workshops and what not? And also I tried to seek an answer for why I didn’t clear my round 2 and how could I have become better? And trust me, rejection affected me in a positive way after I saw it in a positive sense and it taught me that FAIL means ‘First Attempt in Learning.’ 
Unless you don’t fail how will you succeed? Failure is the key to success in life. You cannot succeed without tasting a failure. The difference is that most people see failure as stop sign and successful people see failure as an opportunity to grow. Which makes us believe that once we determine to achieve our goal, no power in the world can stop us…

Each rejection teaches us something new.

Rejection is success if we learn from it, and the world is full of rejections, but remember its you who has to see it from a different perspective and learn from it and not deter from it. Self belief comes in the journey of being something you dream to be, to do something you can and to bring about the change! 

Rejection will never overtake you if your determination to succeed is strong enough…

Go out and fail and don’t let anyone’s rejection disappoint you because the more you fail, the more you learn.
I take rejection as someone blowing a bugle in my ear to wake me up and get going, rather than retreat.
Today’s rejection can become tomorrow’s acceptance. There is such a thing as fate, but it only takes you so far. Then it's up to you to make it happen.

“Remember, no one can design your life, only you can do that.”

Each day is a day to get better… If you can dream it, you can do it!
