When you hear the word r e j e c t i o n, what comes to mind? Are your thoughts positive? Are your thoughts negative? How would you define rejection as it applies to looking for a job in 2013? How has rejection defined you? My client and I were chatting about the “R” word this morning. As one of his homework goals, I invited him to write a paragraph or two about the life-shaping word that starts with “r” and ends with “n.” Have you contemplated the “R” word and its impact, if any, on your career?
Realizing that brands attracts / brands repel and that resilience is an irreplaceable resource.
Embracing the idea that endings are the place to begin, not stop.

Expecting positive results instead of negative outcomes.
Carrying on with commitment, confidence and consistency when you are told ‘no’ time and time again.
Tracking progress to assess areas of excellence and areas in need of attention.
Intentional and unrelenting pursuit of purpose and possibilities.
Overcoming today’s obstacles / objections en route to opportunities for a new tomorrow.
Now shapes next. What will you do with the 86,400 seconds you have been given this day?
“Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.”–Winston Churchill
