We generally fear rejection and, when it happens, it can be upsetting or even depressing.
No one wants to be turned down by a potential client or someone else to whom we have reached out. Perhaps you asked for their business, or you hoped to collaborate with them on a project or you made some other type of proposal. When you hear “no” (or worse, nothing) it can be dispiriting.
So is there a bright side to rejection? There can be, if you take the right approach. Ask yourself these questions.
