Rejection, Reapplication, Resilience


It’s that time of year…business schools are making decisions and not all news is good news. In today’s video I provide three basic tips to keep in mind if you are faced with rejection and contemplating next steps. I also talk about resilience, which is incredibly important if you need to reapply. However, it is also important in LIFE. If you are putting your best out there, you will fail (at least you shoud fail). And if you want to be successful you need to learn how to bounce back and try again.

Check out this week’s video for some instruction as well as some inspiration. Even if you are flying high with great MBA news, the second half of this video applies to anyone striving to get somewhere in life! This week’s video is inspired by the world of magic and a talk that magician David Blaine gave at the Ted conference a few years ago. Watch and enjoy. Let me know what you think in the comments below.
