What’s the Best Way to Handle Rejection?

Barefoot Doctor: 

“The key is to train yourself to stop taking anything personally. Because although it certainly appears personal when someone rejects you personally or professionally, the reality is instead simply that you’re not fitting into the other person’s current agenda. It’s just like being an actor who’s rejected by a casting director because the actor’s face doesn’t fit the picture the casting director had in mind.

Ultimately it all comes down to trusting that each of us has our own destiny and that if someone or something you wanted doesn’t seem to want you back, it’s merely because your destiny has better plans for you.

So every time something doesn’t work out as anticipated or desired, rather than succumb to feeling deflated or dismayed, let yourself feel relieved as it merely means you’re being saved for something that will serve you more effectively on your path to full self-actualization.”

Ever ask yourself if your life is normal or not?

We think the following quote from Paul McKenna really helps in defining what normal is:

“Some people experience hardly any good feelings during the course of a day. Because that’s what they are used to, they think it’s natural. What I point out to them is that a lack of joy in life isn’t natural – it’s normal.

But normal is just another way of saying ‘what usually happens’. In some parts of the world, poverty is normal. Children dying of hunger is normal. Cruelty to animals is normal.

The point is, normal doesn’t mean good, and it certainly doesn’t mean natural. Natural is what you’re designed for – and, simply put, human beings are designed for happiness.”
