Rejection Letters: A Badge Of Honor
Everybody gets rejected at some point, even cool guys like the late Jimi Hendrix.
Wednesday, May 12, 2010 17:06 GMTNEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) Believe it or not, getting rejected is something to be proud of.
Some see rejection as a blow to their ego, but Bill Shapiro, author of Other Peoples Rejection Letters: Relationships, Career Killers, and 150 Other Letters Youll Be Glad You Didnt Receive (Clarkson Potter), says its a badge of honor.
With the economy in the dumps, people are being rejected left and right so they shouldnt be embarrassed to share.
Shapiro explains, Theres no shame. In some ways, a rejection letter shows bravery. At least you tried. You dont want to look back when youre 80 and think, I didnt even try.
His book features rejections received by even the most accomplished people, including Jimi Hendrix, who was rejected from the U.S. Air Force for being too into his guitar and not falling into line, so people shouldnt feel bad if they too have been denied.© Copyright 2010 Wireless Flash News Inc
