Many people who have been victims of depression and suicide have been chronicled to be people who viewed the society been against them which have been a thought that has its root and route to rejection from the society that they expected to have been a source of succor to them.
I was inspired to put down my line of thought from the experience I had yesterday marketing my product to someone, and he rejected my proposal based on the cost of the product .While I was analyzing this encounter, I ended up encouraging myself that the fact that someone rejected my proposal does not mean that others will not accept it.
I ended up encouraging myself to move on and break other fallow land that are waiting for me.
This simply confirmed the submission made by John Paul Dejoria:
“The biggest hurdle is rejection. Any business you start, be ready for it. The difference between successful people and unsuccessful people is the successful people do all the things the unsuccessful people don’t want to do. When 10 doors are slammed in your face, go to door number 11 enthusiastically, with a smile on your face.”
John Paul DeJoria
It is not an abnormality for you to expect people around you to accept or fall in alignment with your ideas, philosophies and lines of thought.

There is always clash of views, ideas and philosophies which is a conformation that as humans we are all created for different purpose and the fulfilment of such purpose must be carried out in a different way.
So, it is expected that a chunk of your ideas, views, concept and philosophies would be waved aside as nothing but a piece of trash.
This places a responsibility on you to develop a think skin to any form of rejection that might come on your way because in reality and in practicality, rejection is one of the channels whereby the greatness in you will emerge.
