It is well to remember that the entire universe, with one trifling exception, is composed of others.

Rejection

No one seeks or enjoys rejection. No one, that is, except those who achieve spectacular success.

Rejection stings as it pierces the ego. Yet once that happens, and vulnerability spills out, you’re suddenly empowered as never before to pursue authentic purpose.

If you can bear to hear enough people say no, you’ll work your way to the one who says yes. If you can stand to have your ideas rejected, you’ll learn how to make them brilliant.

The more you fear rejection, the less effective you’ll be. Don’t let your best efforts be held hostage by that fear.

Rejection hurts only as much as you let it. Rejection can teach, empower, motivate, energize, as much as you’re willing to allow.

Dream what you desire to dream, say what you want to say, do the good things you choose to do. And be thankful when rejection intercedes to make you even stronger.

— Ralph Marston
