Rejection. It can feel devastating, embarrassing, heartbreaking. Everyone experiences it at some point, and it can affect a person in profound ways. It hurts. In this episode, we talk about the importance of healing from past experiences of rejection and ways that you can begin to develop a sense of true resiliency to better handle rejection. Because rejection is a part of life – especially when you have an unconventional business, idea, or  way of doing things. Our guest, Jen Glantz, joins us to discuss ways to proactively and positively take on the possibility of rejection. We chat all about how to process rejection when you're faced with it, how to move forward from it, and how to ultimately come to enjoy failing forward.

Top Three Takeaways:

  1. Rejection is a part of life. Everyone experiences it – even successful people—and often people who have an unconventional business, idea, or way of doing things.

  2. When you get rejected, hold space for the heartbreak of it and give yourself time to sit with it and process it. Also, give yourself permission to not think about a solution or what to do next.

  3. You can cultivate your resiliency by doing the emotional work to heal from past rejection and by doing  mindset work to support you in keeping a sense of curiosity, wonder, openness, and trust when faced with rejection in the future.
