Show Notes

Have you ever felt that stinging sensation of rejection, especially from a job you were rooting for? You're not alone, and we're here to tell you - it's not you, it's them! In this episode, we emphasize the need to detach worth from outputs and instead focus on continuous learning and growth. We discussed the reality of job rejection and turned it on its head.

So, sit back and redefine what personal growth and continuous learning mean to you.
