The ego is nothing other than the focus of conscious attention.
- Alan Watts
Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else.
The focus on my appearance has really surprised me. I’ve always been a size 14 to 16, I don’t care about clothes, I’d rather spend my money on cigarettes and booze.
Always stay true to yourself and never sacrifice who you are for anyone.
Strong minds suffer without complaining, weak minds complain without suffering.
- Lettie Cowman
Hard work, sacrifice and focus will never show up in tests.
- Lance Armstrong
Rejection is not someone wanting you out of their life. Rejection is someone that God wanted out of your future.
Do not waste yourself in rejection; do not bark against the bad, but chant the beauty of the good.
Rejection isn’t failure. Failure is giving up. Everybody gets rejected. It’s how you handle it that determines where you’ll end up.
Rejection should ignite soul-searching, and the soul-searching must be absolutely honest.
- Adena Friedman
The more rejection you get, the better you are, the more you’ve learned, the closer you are to your outcome. If you can handle rejection, you’ll learn to get everything you want.
- Tony Robbins
Trust that when the answer is no, there’s a better yes down the road.
Successful people reject rejection.
- John C. Maxwell
Everyone at some point in life have faced rejection and failure, it is part of the process to self-realisation.
- Lailah Gifty Akita
Rejection is not the end…It’s just a step on the path.
Don’t take rejection overly personally. If that doesn’t work out, there’s something else waiting for you.
- Sierra McCormick
Don’t be upset when people reject you. Nice things are rejected all the time by people who can’t afford them.
Rejection doesn’t mean you aren’t good enough; it means the other person failed to notice what you have to offer.
- Mark Amend
If I get rejected for a part, I pick myself up and say, “Ok, not today, maybe tomorrow I’ll get this other part or something.”
- Liam Neeson
Rejection is God’s way of saying “Wrong Direction”.
