Product description

Product Description

If you want to achieve something original and meaningful with your life, you MUST learn to deal with rejection and criticism.

If you're an artist of any kind your work will be rejected by editors, curators and other gatekeepers. And each time you put it in front of the public, you expose yourself to criticism.

If you're an entrepreneur you face rejection by (potential) customers, partners and investors. Those same people won't hesitate to criticise you if they are unhappy (justified or not).

If you're chasing your dream job you'll receive your share of rejection letters. And once you land the job, taking flak when things go wrong is part of the deal.

Many people set out on their chosen path full of hope and inspiration, only to turn back because they couldn't deal with the emotional impact of crushing rejections and vicious criticism.

If you want to avoid joining the legions of also-rans, you'll need to find practical, effective ways to deal with rejection and criticism.

Anyone who says 'don't take it so personally' doesn't understand what it's like when you are hit by a major rejection or biting criticism. You need to acknowledge the pain - and find ways to bounce back from it.

In short, you need to develop resilience.

As an award-winning poet and a creative entrepreneur, Mark McGuinness has dealt with his share of rejection and criticism, and found ways to persist in pursuit of his dreams.

And for over twenty years he's been sharing his solutions with his coaching clients, helping hundreds of creatives like you to face down the same challenges.

In Resilience, Mark McGuinness explains why your reactions to rejection and criticism are completely understandable - and how to deal with them effectively.

Through stories from his own experience, as well as those of famous people who faced rejection and criticism on the road to their success, he will show you that you are far from alone in suffering from rejection and criticism.

And he gives practical advice that has been road-tested with hundreds of people facing similar challenges to you.

You will learn:
  • Why rejection and criticism hurt so much
  • Several ways you may be making rejection worse (without realising it)
  • How to keep going in spite of multiple rejections
  • Why your inner critic is (potentially) your best friend
  • When to ignore the critics - and when to listen
  • Whether (and how) to respond to insults and abuse
  • Why success is harder than it looks - and how to deal with it

This is not a theoretical book - it's packed with practical tips and techniques you can apply to your own challenges right away.

Whether you're just setting out, in the middle of your journey, or dealing with the unexpected challenges of success, this book will show you how to keep moving forward.

If you take a few hours to read Resilience, its lessons will help you for the rest of your life.
