Rejection is Rejuvenation

19 Sep Rejection is Rejuvenation

Gaining confidence from rejection. Rejection is redirection and rejuvenation.



Throughout life and our careers, we experience rejection. One of the hardest experiences is feeling experiencing a “no.” Rejection was a huge fear of mine until I experienced multiple rejections as an entrepreneur. I have pitched many things for my business and as an entrepreneur you are emotionally connected to your business. In the beginning I would feel disappointed to feel this rejection, but as time went by, I would look back in hindsight and say, “I wasn’t meant to have that because there was something else that was meant for me.” I began to look at this as redirection to other opportunities. It is OK to feel disappointed however at some point know that something else is coming.


I also called rejection, “rejuvenation,” because in all the times I’ve felt rejected, I’ve grown from those experiences and became emotionally stronger. I used to say I had thick skin and now I say I have a “suit of armor.”


My wish for women is that they will keep moving forward despite experiencing rejection in life.
