“A rejection is nothing more than a necessary step in the pursuit of success.”Bo Bennett

The Journey - Painting by Cherie Roe Dirksen 1The Fear of Rejection

Rejection is not something we take to kindly. Rejection, for most, is something to be avoided at all costs and if encountered we tend to slip into self-doubt, shame, self-flagellation and a variety of other negative emotions.

The thought of entering a situation that could lead to rejection makes us feel vulnerable. Eeek!  Another word that sends shivers down the spines of the most hardy.

But why?

Vulnerability — The Gateway to Testing the Waters of Potential

What is interesting is that vulnerability can indeed lead to rejection but rejection only ever equates to not being in vibrational alignment or frequential match to what we think we want.

We should not take rejection personally.

In other words, when we experience rejection it is actually the universe saving us time and trouble when something is not in alignment with our destination.  

We may not see it at the time and pine for what we think we ‘lost out’ on but we need to realign with the truth that it wasn’t meant to be in the first place and something else that is a frequential match is on the way.  

Sometimes we are so hung up on the rejection that we miss the opportunity that the rejection made way for.  


Let Me Give You a Personal Example:

Back in 2002 my hubby and I were going through some financial strain.  We had both left our jobs to pursue working for ourselves and, after a year, it wasn't going well.

“Rejection ultimately leads to refining your true path.”

We were toying with the idea of going to work in the UK but it was a daunting idea for both of us.  After much consideration, we decided to ask for our old jobs back.  Both of us left on great terms with our employers and both companies assured us that if we should ever need our jobs back, they would be there for us.

Well, as synchronicity would have it, neither one of us got our jobs back.

We were really shocked and surprised but what it actually did for us was push us into going overseas.  We eventually did take the plunge and we enjoyed a 3 year working holiday which saw us return with enough money to buy our first property cash.

If we had not been rejected, we wouldn't have had the joy of living and working abroad in a country that boasted so many unique and rich historical treasures.  We wouldn't have met the most amazing people, travelled all over England and Scotland and we most likely wouldn't have bought any property.

Embracing Rejection

Try to face rejection with the renewed optimism that it is a divining rod that could possibly lead you to that bountiful spring!

Allow yourself to be a little vulnerable when you need to test the waters of a prospective desire.  If rejected then allow yourself to hold your head high as you stride over to the next possible potential.

Rejection ultimately leads to refining your true path.
