Why being rejected from a job is a blessing in disguise.
You just got rejected from your dream job, your devastated, and the world feels like it’s crashing in. But wait, why look at the situation with the glass half empty?
There are always multiples approaches to a scenario, and each one will have a different reaction, but you have the ability to keep it positive or negative.
It’s normal to feel down after being rejected, whether it’s a job, or in a relationship, let’s face it, no one wants to face those feelings, but they are bound to happen.
It would be impossible for every situation to have a positive outcome, so being prepared will help this process.
Job rejections suck, but let’s face it, in the end, the way you handle it shows your true character. Keep in mind, being rejected from your dream job does NOT make you a failure, it shows you can step out of your comfort zone and take the path less traveled.
Stepping out of your comfort zone is important, and will prepare you for future obstacles.
Also, rejection does NOT mean you lack skills, or even that you’re under qualified. Let rejection serve as a fuel to be unstoppable. Use this motivation to succeed in all your endeavors.
Here, your resilience will show, and it’s one of the most important qualities you can have. It’s better to step out of your comfort zone. Growing from failure builds necessary character to work under stress.
That being said, view the process as a learning experience, because having different unique experiences, helps build your character. Having a resilient mindset will be key throughout the process.
Resilience demonstrates your ability to understand the reality, and take it as a positive. Not every situation in life will go as planned, so this attitude will eliminate some of the harsh negatives of rejection.
When looking at rejection, there is no reason to question yourself. Maybe they weren’t right for you, not vice versa.
Maybe you were overqualified, or there wasn’t a personality match up, but that’s a good thing. Rather than joining a team that isn’t a great fit, allow yourself to find the right fit.
Good things take time. Cliché, but true, so never lose sight of that.
