If You've Been Rejected – WATCH THIS | by Jay Shetty

Rejection is painful. Beating yourself up when you’ve been rejected makes things even worse. Jay Shetty urges viewers to avoid taking rejection personally and instead take it curiously.

Taking rejection curiously and actively allows us to see it as feedback. Feedback can fuel us to grow, change, and get better. The more you experience rejection, the more opportunities you have to improve.

Instead of seeing rejection as a signal of failure, choose to see it as a guiding beacon to success. Rejection can be the “No” that moves us to the ultimate “Yes” in our lives. Don’t let rejection block you. Instead, let it be the motivator that guides you to growth.

The term build it and it will come is false… BE IT and it will come! My name is Wil aka Hollywood Wil and I have been down, confused, depressed, lost, and didn’t know which way was up. Believe it or not watching Jay and other motivational speakers helped me a great deal. If you are not comfortable enough to talk just start watching videos until you are comfortable enough to talk to someone.

I hope you enjoy not only the videos but my entire Vlog 🙂


  1. Jay Shetty is the beat creator for self-improvement. Jay inspired me so much that I started my own YouTube channel. My channel is also about self-improvement. I would love some support from you guys.

  2. A bird sitting on tree is never afraid of the branch breaking, because her trust is not on the branch but on its own wings. Maybe in this New Year we need to make something that is yours, instead of hoping and waiting for something that isnt… Maybe then we can earn our happyness instead of someone rejection…When you have time visit ugu.mihailo (channel with videos on eng sub) with open mind 🙂

  3. If you want to be accepted, you need to change your outward appearance and your taste to appeal to other people. That's what I learned from this video. I know that's not the message that you wanted to convey, but here's some honest feedback that the way you frame the opening scene that's an unconscious message that it reinforces.

  4. I got rejected yesterday.

    I work with my sister and was talking to her when boss barged in and interrupted us.

    He said “Don’t bring your lunch tomorrow, it’s on Kyle!” (manager from another branch)

    To which we both replied “Woohoo!”

    And he turned to me and said “oh, not you, just your sister”



  5. Not sure why I didn't like the first section. The reality of this kind of rejection is that usually it's a lot more consistent. Granted they needed to get a point across in no time at all, but still.
    Jay on the other hand hit the nail on the head more than once. So true. So so true.
    Also remember that being rejected sometimes has nothing to do with your approach or your product or services, specifically regarding career. Sometimes the reason we are rejected is entirely a reason related to the other party. Personal or financial. Finding out or deducting the true reason for the rejection is sometimes more important to eventual success than just accepting the feedback. And then ultimately realising all pitches are a numbers game anyway. All we can really do is everything we can, while accepting all the many aspects we can't.
