Getting turned down or away is discouraging no matter how many years you’ve invested in your professional journey.
But even though it stings at first, rejection may actually make you tougher in the long run. The key to achieving your career ambitions comes down to one question: How many times are you willing to pick yourself up after falling down?
In fact, some of the most successful household names have been turned away, more than once.
Stephen King, the man who wrote the book on writing saw 30 rejections from publishers for his novel Carrie — the same work that launched his career and spawned an iconic horror movie.
“One of the most critical skills that can help someone cope with rejection is resilience — or the ability to quickly recover from challenges. Luckily, resilience is not just a static attribute but a learned, lifelong skill that can be honed, just like a muscle that can be strengthened and grown over time.”
