Rejection as fuel

Nobody wants to talk about rejection. Our poor egos, even the word itself feels gross.

When we don’t get what we thought we wanted, we all know the feeling. Disappointment, I really thought this was it, it felt so right, I could see it all play out. For whatever reason, it just wasn’t in the cards. Have you ever noticed the fuel that this creates within you?

All of a sudden you’re your most productive. All of the energy that was going into desiring that one thing or trying to change reality is all of a sudden freed up. So you move full steam ahead toward those things that fuel you, what other choice do you have?

Consider the idea that that rejection, that no, that delay in gratification played out EXACTLY how it was supposed to. Suspend the belief that things should have been any way besides exactly how they are. Maybe things were moved out of the way so you could see your dreams more clearly?

Reclaim your head space, your energy, your efforts, there's work to do and now you're fully fueled.
