Learning from Rejection or Defeat

Last Update: January 25, 2018

One should not be embarrassed about not getting into Kyle's program or anyone else's for any number of reasons. Think of these reasons as alternative ways of thinking. Even if they are not true for you --something you may never have the answer to--considering them can certainly help you feel better!

First, maybe you were rejected because you were too high up the ladder and Kyle thought others would benefit more from his training.


Second, maybe you were just there at the cut off point and barely missed. After all, he couldn't take everyone.


Third, maybe Kyle was looking for someone who might turn defeat into a teaching moment.


And so on... The best thing to do is to add your own alternative thoughts, feel better, and get back to work. After all, you just might benefit from the other WA mentors.

Your turn soon is the answer. We are climbing the ladder of life and our turn to rise is on the way. I left school and got a job. I was climbing the ladder. I made it up the ladder, foreman, manager, now retired. Others following took my place. Your turn next.

Sounds like you are saying patience is the best answer here to being rejected for the moment.

I have seen two people that I am sure are part of Bo's gogetters that are also in the super affiliate group. I think they were more than a little greedy by applying for another group that is doing the same thing. This should not have been allowed with the number of members here at WA with these groups being so small.

I did not realize that both groups were covering the same thing; however, my decision to join Bo's group was based on (1) I learned about his first and believed that whatever he did would be more than helpful because he is an ambassador and has been around for a while and (2) I could not commit to more than one group and do justice to both. I am planning to learn from Bo's leadership.

It's great that you put those thoughts into words as many people here may have been thinking the same thing.

I just started here at WA this month so I'm just a newbie watching from the sidelines; however, I do appreciate you addressing these thoughts. These thoughts apply to a lot more than just WA.

You are right. Those thoughts apply to all aspects of life when we feel disappointed or harmed and even when something good happens. We have a tendency to wonder why it happened to us! Thanks, Rick.
