A few weeks ago I spoke to a friend about a creative opportunity. I thought I had a good shot at being accepted for it, but then my friend called me back. I was not going to be considered for the opportunity.

At first, I was hurt and a little angry. I moped around the house for a couple of days, feeling sorry for myself. 

But on Saturday morning, I woke up and had a stark realization: I was acting like a child and my attitude sucked.

I stood back and took a hard look at myself. What could I learn from this? How could this rejection make me better?

In this post, I’ll share nine things I have learned from this experience. I hope these will be useful as you deal with rejection in your own life.
