Notes 2 Inspire: Rejection is Information

Rejection sucks. It hurts. It’s a total let down if you were super excited about something and then the door feels like it slams in your face. Fear of Rejection is real and is a massive block for many of us doing the things that we feel compelled to do!

But, what if Rejection got a total facelift. What if instead of thinking about Rejection as a bad thing, as something to fear and as a reason for not launching the product, sharing the post or idea or asking someone to join you on something we saw it as necessary feedback?

Ok, don’t stop reading just yet, hear me out. When we put ourselves out into the public there is always the possibility that we will be loved by some, liked by others, maybe others will just be neutral and then, of course, there will be the rejecters. Their rejection doesn’t mean you should do the thing you want to do. Rather, it just means they are not your audience. They are not your client, they are not someone you have to spend another moment trying to convince.

See, here’s the thing, it’s easy to think that you, your product or business is for anybody and everybody. But, it’s not and it can’t be and if you continue with that mindset no one will hear you or see your product because you cannot talk to everyone at the same time. When you, your idea, product etc gets rejected it is feedback to help you go out there and do the thing again!

But this time you’ll be even better at it! You’ll know who to talk to and who you don’t need to worry about. Rejection is integral growing your idea from a piece of paper to out in the world and beyond.

So, the next time you get a big, massive rejection thank them. They just helped you in more ways than they will ever know!
