Take Baby Steps.
Just a little step forward on the very day when you’ve felt smacked around by life can help you recommit and move through the pain of rejection.
When your proposal is turned down, make the suggested improvements, then send it out to another company.
When the promotion goes to someone else, sign up for a class that gives you an added skill.
When your spouse breaks it off, have a dinner with a sibling or close friend and soak up their love.
When you are doubting yourself, feeling like a failure, get up and go again.
With persistence, you can overcome any setback.
