Victory Over Rejection

Photo by pdufour

In this business of "show business", rejection is experienced daily. I couldn't remain in this business working continuously on my acting career if I could not handle multiple rejections.

Sometimes they hurt and other times once I get over myself, I realize that it was best that a particular opportunity was not given to me. As I continue to grow and see more of what this industry offers, I begin to notice how things are working together. If I didn't experience rejection, then I wouldn't remain humble and excited about resetting for the next big opportunity. I would always think someone owes me something and we both know that in this life it doesn't work that way.

Rejection hurts, don't get me wrong. It can put you down for the count. However, it's what you do to reset your focus and purpose to continue in the race that makes all the difference. No, it's not easy, but the payoffs are huge when they arrive and the rejection shows how hungry you are to reach YOUR finish line or level of success.

So, today, if you have experienced some form of rejection in your career, in a relationship, or body, know that it's nothing but a test. It's a test to keep you humble and empowered to fight through it all for what you want and believe even when the going gets tough.

With Love and Peace To You,

According to Dr. Charles Stanley many people live in bondage to feelings of rejection and don't even realize it. It causes us to believe lies about ourselves and project hurtful emotions on others. It also undermines our relationships with God. Dr. Stanley describes the nature of rejection and shares a number of characteristics of a person who feels rejected. In this book, learn from Charles Stanley, How To Let God Solve Your Problems.
