Strength through Rejection

And now for a question you can’t reject… (and an invite you shouldn’t)

How would you prioritize your favorite rejection quotes?

  1. You must learn how to handle rejection. To succeed, you must learn how to cope with a little word ‘no’, learn how to strip that rejection of all its power. The best salesmen are those who are rejected most. They are the ones who can take any ‘no’ and use it as a prod to go onto the next ‘yes’. ~ Tony Robbins
  2. We will not allow rejection to beat us down. It will only strengthen our resolve. To be successful there is no other way. ~ Earl G. Graves
  3. I take rejection as someone blowing a bugle in my ear to wake me up and get going, rather than retreat. ~ Sylvester Stallone
  4. A rejection is nothing more than a necessary step in the pursuit of success. ~ Bo Bennett
  5. There’s nothing like rejection to make you do an inventory of yourself. ~ James Lee Burke
  6. All great innovations are built on rejections.  ~ Louis Ferdinand Céline
  7. Dearer are those who reject us as unworthy, for they add another life; they build a heaven before us whereof we had not dreamed, and thereby supply to us new powers out of the recesses of the spirit, and urge us to new and unattempted performances. ~  Ralph Waldo Emerson
  8. As I look back on my life, I realize that every time I thought I was being rejected from something good, I was actually being re-directed to something better. ~ Steve Maraboli.
  9. I really wish I was less of a thinking man, and more a fool who’s not afraid of rejection. ~ Billy Joel
  10. As long as I keep getting rejected, I know I must be doing something right. ~ Suzanne Partridge
