Dealing with Rejection by zefrank1

This applies to so many areas of life.

If you can't watch it now, take home these messages from zefrank1:

After being rejected, take the time to consider:
- Things out of your control.
- Things in your control.
- Your feelings (they're all valid, but now we need to figure out what to do next).

And, in all cases, remember:
"Being rejected is kind of awesome; it means you are playing with your upper limits. A lot of people don't get rejected at all; they are playing it safe."

"Rejection is a big part of life, and I hope you get rejected a bunch more because it means you are trying your ass off."
This is good motivation to get back to work on my grant application resubmission.
