Read these lines twice when you feel like giving up in life.
So, now that you have become a professional in your field, 50 percent of your dream scenario is completed, so congratulate yourself for working hard enough to achieve what you only dreamt of. Now the second half of your dream has begun, and you might feel like it is an easy thing to become a master. Still, it is so difficult to apply your mastery and professional skills at the relevant opportunities.
Go back in the past! Haven’t you thought that the professional course that I am going to do is so difficult? You would have definitely thought of this at some particular time, and things still took off after you had maintained your patience and hard work. Have faith and know that your hard work and determination will roll over the stones yet again.
Here are a few things that you need to keep in mind to deal with rejection at jobs.
1) Be patient and work hard
Remember, if you stop at this point, you are not only letting go of your dreams but also proving that the time taken to complete the strenuous course in your field was a complete waste.
2) Believe in yourself!
Believe that you have the capability to achieve what you desire. Don’t underestimate yourself. Just think positively and believe that you can fly!
3) Appreciate yourself. Learn to appreciate yourself even though all people see is a failure. You know you can do it, and no one else can put you down. Rejections are a part of one’s life; learn to accept them and move on.
4)Find out the reasons for which you have been rejectedFind out the reasons that have let you down and depressed you. If not anything, take inspiration from the Bollywood films(they can be really motivating at times) and then work on them so that you have no reason to fail.
5) Start meditating
Meditation might appear boring, but it is a healthy exercise for both body and the mind. Try it in the morning, and you could even look for some meditation tracks on YouTube. Even five minutes of meditation can help you forget the pain and help you cope with rejection.
6) Master your profession
Don’t let your mind wander off, and there are so many other things to learn and achieve even after getting a degree. Start improvising on your skills to assure yourself that your life graph is on the rise and is not declining after job rejections. Master your skills every day to get better.
7) Do not compare yourself to others Comparisons are odious. The only person you should compare yourself with is your older self; try to be a better version of yourself every day. You may see many of your old fellows getting good jobs, and you are the only one left, don’t worry because your golden period might be around the corner. Remember, you are unique and special, and comparison would only weigh you down.
Job rejections can take a toll on a person, but never let one rejection define you and your identity.
