- Congratulate yourself. Yes, give yourself a pat on the back for even having the courage, strength and tenacity to go for it in the first place.
- Give yourself a specific amount of time to get upset about it before fully moving on. Now, time is a human factor, and we can either waste or utilise it. See below of how Beyoncé deals with rejection:
This is why she slays.
- Find some closure/ask for feedback. In some cases you may not need to, but in others it’s important that you ask for this so you know how to implement this into the next shot you take, and improve on it.
- Count your blessings, not your problems.
- Understand that some things are in line with your purpose, and others aren’t. What’s meant for you will have substance and lasting value.
- Surround yourself with honest, uplifting people who listen. Don’t look for for the type of puppy dog advice. I always pray first, then sometimes speak to my mother or really close friend about it.
Lastly, realise that even people you think that have ‘made it’ STILL face rejection. It’s often called human nature when the feeling of ‘never truly being satisfied’ is discussed. I think it’s harder to be fully content in the world of today, but it’s so important to remember that you are growing and progressing, and getting closer to where you hope to be.
Until then, embrace the journey, stay thankful, humble, and happy.
