You have probably heard or read this quote at least once in your life.

What is meant for you will not pass you.

I cannot stress enough, the significance of these words. Its applicable to all aspects of life. From relationships that didn’t work, the dream job that didn’t go accordingly, that business you started and failed…the list is endless.

No one likes rejection but we all encounter it at some point in our lives. It is inevitable. However, do not be discouraged. Worrying and stressing over something that didn’t work out will only weigh you down and even bring about stagnation because you can’t think straight. Nothing that is meant for you will pass you by as long as you are putting yourself out there and actively seeking opportunities.

“As I look back on my life, I realize that every time I thought I was being rejected from something good, I was actually being re-directed to something better.” ~ Steve Maraboli

Here is something I haven’t told many but I am back to job hunting again. Yes. You heard right. There are various reasons as to why I found myself in this position but most of all I felt like a huge failure and it has been a phase of learning to see things differently and trying to see what I can learn from it.

It has bruised my confidence to some degree but its something I am working on through reading personal development books. On some days, I have episodes of thinking which lead to stress and when I get stressed I am not as productive as I would like to be. However, I am now more aware of what brings about stress and the following tips have been of help in my life. I also believe that what is mine will not miss me and that there is something better out there for me. I am going to continue to apply for jobs in my field, network and explore other types of opportunities – including freelance work. I am willing to hustle until I find a job that is fulfilling and I am confident that I will be okay. What is meant for me will not pass me.
