HOW TO TURN FAILURE INTO SUCCESS (4) DON’T BLAME SOMEONE ELSE FOR A REJECTION
Instead of blaming themselves , many people go to the opposite extreme. They insist that life is unfair and blame the world. Cynthia lost a public relation job at a New York hospital because she was inexperienced and somewhat disorganised . After she interviewed unsuccessfully for a new position with another hospital , she discovered she had been the second choice among the candidates . Cynthia was furious because she had her heart set on this job. She said they hadn’t given her a fair shake and insisted they didn’t understand her full potential.
When she later learned that the man they hired had ten years of successful experience in public relations, she understood that being the second choice was a compliment and a basis for optimism. She persisted in her job search and ultimately landed an equally derisable position.
