Being rejected builds character

When you get rejected, it tells you that you need to change. This change doesn’t necessarily have to be to impress those who rejected you though, sometimes people are just plain wrong. It usually just means a change of tack is necessary.

Either way, when you are rejected, it can take time to rebuild. How you approach this rebuilding process shows your real attitude.

Most people hold some resentment against their rejectors. It helps to realise that this resentment can get in the way of your rebuilding. The sooner you can get past this, the better.

That’s why getting rejected builds character. To get over the rejection, you have to make a change, and it has to be in a positive direction.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
