Rejection of you and your working life sometimes happens for many reasons. It could be through your business not going so well or failing and leaving you without an income, through losing your job, breakup of your relationship or unfortunately through ill health. Mine was through ill-health in 2007 I was diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia, I was concerned of what was going to happen to me and my family now! OK I have been dealt a tough call but life has and will go on, I will as well! Having achieved a comfortable life with a great wife and extended family I could have just sat back and done nothing but as usual I was searching for the sunrise that happens every day, so I will as well. One of the most difficult things to handle by people and even leaders is rejection. Rejection has been in some cases followed by some people committing suicide. It has also caused many people to be discouraged, ruining bright futures and dazzling caterers.
Please understand me that I’m yet to see someone who has been rejected who has not ended up in a great or strong position. After all your destination is greatness and not shame, your alone today and there are not many people want to be associated with you (I’ve been there) so, I’m going to challenge you today to rise up from despondency and start to think positively and develop a capacity of character don’t let rejection of anyone discourage you, let it re-direct you!
Lastly, I’m yet to see anyone who has been great once who has never had a rejection in their life. I’m yet to see anyone who was once rejected who did not end up great. So, don’t let rejection distract or discourage you from following your dreams and desires but let it re-direct you.
