REJECTION EQUALS OPPORTUNITY
How do we overcome the disappointment that come from rejection?
Should we avoid rejection or should we embrace it and see it as opportunity?
REAL LIFE INVOLVES BOTH REJECTION AND OPPORTUNITY
Life is full of situations where we can feel rejected, but if we avoid rejection we also avoid opportunity.
In our lives we have to get to a point of understanding that we can’t do life without a degree of rejection that it will inevitably come our way.
If we are afraid of rejection and of not being accepted, we often step away from opportunity and open doors to new beginnings and new horizons. If we spend our lives avoiding rejection we may for a season think we are doing ourselves a favour, but after a while we will inevitably feel stagnation gather around our lives hemming us in.
THE THING WE ARE NEVER TOLD
Sadly, know one ever tells us that when we live life ‘rejection free’ we also avoid opportunity. That rejection equals opportunity!
So we need to understand that opportunity is always hidden in rejection. That opportunity is beyond the boundary. If we want opportunity we have to find it!
REJECTION IS RE-DIRECTION
You have to press through the reality of rejection, realising that all rejection is new direction. Your rejection is often re-direction into a new opportunity.
Sometimes we have to take a lot of nose to find a yes. We have to have a lot of doors slam in our faces before the right one opens.
IF WE DON’T SWING WE’LL MISS THE BALL
If we are to succeed in our lives we will experience much rejection. In any racket game if we don’t swing we’ll always miss the ball. Rejection equals opportunity, when after many misses we finally hit the ball.
You cant have opportunity without rejection. We have to learn to take rejection on the chin because most opportunity lies beyond rejection.
Rejection equals opportunity
The Bible teaches us that, we are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.
2 Corinthians 4:8-9 (NIV)
