“No” Doesn’t Mean Never: Learning How To Deal With Disappointment

By Posted on 5 2 m read

There’s this mini moment that people have when they go out for an opportunity but aren’t chosen. For a second they begin questioning everything they’ve done up until that very point. “What did I do wrong? Am I not qualified? What if I would have done this differently?”

Admit it, you too are guilty of this. We all are. But the truth is most times, you’ve done everything right. It just wasn’t your time. And if you don’t know by now, timing is everything.

The word, “no” freaks a lot of people out. We often have a hard time saying it and we certainly have a hard time hearing and accepting it. As the years go by you’ll hear more nos but the way you react to them and the way you handle them makes all the difference.

There are people that will mope about an opportunity they didn’t receive for weeks. Then there are those that will mope about it for a little bit and then quickly develop a plan that will allow them to continue pursing the dream they set forth.

No doesn’t mean never. Sometimes it means, not right now.

This isn’t the end of the world as it shouldn’t be. If anything, let this serve as fuel for you to continue working hard and taking all necessary steps until you get the yes your want and deserve.

As an instant gratification generation, this is a hard concept to grasp. So, the next time you get a, “No” come right back to this very place and remind yourself, “It just wasn’t my time.”
