Whether you’re an artist, creative, freelancer, athlete, entrepreneur or employee, you’ll put yourself forward for opportunities, only to be rejected – maybe many times.
And when you do manage to get yourself or your work out there for the world to see, you expose yourself to criticism – not all of the ‘constructive’ kind!
These are the two big challenges I address in my new book Resilience: Facing Down Rejection and Criticism on the Road to Success.
Based on over sixteen years spent coaching people to achieve their goals in spite of rejection, criticism and other obstacles, it’s designed to help you persist in the face of adversity and make your dreams a reality.
Read the first five chapters of Resilience for free
You can read the first five chapters for free in the preview window below. (If you’re reading via email you may need to click through to the online version to read it.)
The opening chapters explain:
- Why rejection and criticism hurt so much (no, you’re not being ‘over sensitive’)
- What two Japanese demons can teach you about resilience
- Why fear is a positive sign that you’re on the right track (and how to deal with it)
- How the idea for the book was staring me in the face for years before I saw it
I hope you enjoy the preview – if you want to read the whole book you can do so on just about any computer, tablet or smartphone, or on your preferred eReader, including of course the Amazon Kindle.
