Reject is a Myth

We keep going back, stronger, not weaker, because we will not allow rejection to beat us down. Itwill only strengthen our resolve.To be successful there is no other way. EARL G. GRAVES

To get over rejection, you have to realize that rejection is really a myth. It doesn’t really exist. It is simply a concept that you hold in your head. Think about it. If you ask Patty to have dinner with you
and she says no, you didn’t have anyone to eat dinner with before you asked her, and you don’t have anyone to eat dinner with after you asked her. The situation didn’t get worse; it stayed the same. It
only gets worse if you go inside and tell yourself something extra like “See, Mother was right. No one will ever like me. I am the slug of the universe!”
If you apply to Harvard for graduate school and you don’t get in, you weren’t in Harvard before you applied, and you are not in Harvard after you applied. Again, your life didn’t get worse; it stayed
the same. You haven’t really lost anything. And think about this—you have spent your whole life not
going to Harvard; you know how to handle that.
The truth is, you never have anything to lose by asking, and because there is something to possibly gain, by all means ask.
