The rejection that rocked my world, and what I learned about the way that I cope
If you know me, you know that I’m a sensitive person. I take things that people say about me to heart, and when I feel the slightest bit rejected, it takes an emotional toll.
So when I was turned down for a huge media opportunity during my book launch, you can imagine just how hurt I was.
If I could go back and do it all over I would, because the disappointment and sadness that I felt as a result of this rejection really brought me down during what should have been a really exciting time for me.
But here’s the good news. This experience has made me take a long, hard look at how my own expectations play a role in how I handle things when they don’t go my way -- and moving forward, I’ll have an entirely new perspective.
I’ve also recommitted to some simple mindset shifts that I know will help me in the future when things don’t go as I thought they would.
In this episode, you’ll hear about this entire experience -- how I handled it, what went wrong, and what I’m committed to doing moving forward.
This is a very honest and vulnerable conversation, and a topic that’s so important to talk about as entrepreneurs -- because allowing something that’s completely out of your control to get the very best of you is simply not worth it, sweet friend.
So if you feel rejection as deeply as I do, I hope this episode helps you reframe your thoughts so you can keep moving forward as the very best version of yourself.
