Dealing with Rejection

With the way things are at the moment, you may experience more rejection than usual. When you’re trying your best but not seeing any results it’s normal to feel disheartened.

Things to remember

1. Giving up guarantees failure  

As long as you don’t give up you still have a chance. The moment you do, then it’s over. If it’s getting to be too much, you can reduce the number of applications you make daily. Then make a point to enjoy your leisure time doing inexpensive things you love. You can see this as an extended break.    

2. You can never tell when the breakthrough is about to happen 

We’ve all heard the story about a miner that gave up and sold his mine. Another person bought it and within a day struck gold. Improve your skills, learn better ways to do things but you have to believe that you will break through.

3. Never be embarrassed to ask for help.

Make use of your network. Don’t feel bad asking for help. Your network is a valid resource. Chances are someone you know may be able to provide you with that connection you need. Nobody ever makes it without any help, it might be something as small as a good suggestion.  

4. Have a plan B

It is possible to have a backup plan that you can carry out at the same time. It may be something you can do temporarily, or an idea you’ve wanted to try out but haven’t had the time. Having something else can help you from despairing and allow you to keep plugging away at your main goal. It’s better to divide your effort than to quit altogether. If that plan B turns out to be better than your plan A, then that’s even better. 


When things get tough it’s easy to despair.  You have to keep going. Try anything that can make you happy, make the most of your situation, enjoy your time with family, friends, spend pleasurable time pursuing your hobbies. As long as you devote a fair amount of time and effort to attaining your goals, it isn’t a bad thing to enjoy your leisure time. Take things one day at a time and know that things will get better if you keep putting in the work and improving your tools.
