Handling Rejection in your Career & Dating Life

Rejection is one of the hardest things that we deal with in life. Especially when we get rejected for job offers or by someone we’re interested in, it feels like everything we want and need in life is out of our control.

The reason that rejection can be so hard is because you place your value in the opportunities you’re pursuing.

We’ve all been turned down (or at least I have) for a job we didn’t really want. In those situations, rejection doesn’t feel all that bad. In fact, you might even feel relieved.

But when you get rejected from a dream job, it hits completely different.

That’s because not only did you value the position you had, but that position also became part of your identity. When you place your identity and your worth in external factors, and it gets taken away, you feel like you’re not valuable anymore.

With just a few key mindset shifts, you can actually start to look at rejection as a positive thing because it no longer determines your value in the world.

In this podcast episode, I explain how you can

  • develop a positive attitude toward rejection,
  • learn from your life experiences, and
  • transform your perspective from needing external validation to knowing your intrinsic worth
