Rejection Correction

  • What really hurts is not so much being turned down or turned away as much as being made to feel your contributions are not legitimate.
  • I operate off of the batting average theory I mentioned here before: If I succeed one out of four times, I am hitting .250 (25%) and that’s not bad because no one bats 1.000 — ever.
  • When faced with rejection, do not accept anything that makes your efforts feel not legitimate.
  • No one rightfully can expect to live life or work at their career totally without rejection but it is our responsibility not to let anyone make our efforts feel illegitimate.
