Dealing With the Bruise of Rejection

By Auntie Anne Beiler
Have you ever experienced rejection? That feeling of not being wanted or accepted. Rejection is a deep bruise that destroys our whole being. As a result of criticism, abandonment, and other forms of abuse or neglect, we end up with a bruise – a physical or emotional injury. And so, we build walls which allow no one into our world. My first memory of feeling "left out" was around age ten. I didn't know about rejection. I only knew what I felt when excluded. (Growing up with eight children in the ...

Daily Inspiration: "A healthy fear of failure is just an ingredient for eventual success!"

By Jim Carroll
"A healthy fear of failure is just an ingredient for eventual success!" – Futurist Jim Carroll Remember that phrase: fail early, fail often? History has taught us that some of the most successful product launches of all time were as the result of earlier dismal failures. Apple didn't get to the iPod without the earlier Newton. (I actually had one, and was at the product launch!) In fact, Apple is a successful company built on a foundation of repeated ...

By Bruce Tulgan
Dave Christiansen, CEO of MKC If asked to describe his leadership philosophy, Dave Christiansen may offer you this quote from Walter Lippmann: "The final test of a leader is that he leaves behind him in other men the conviction and the will to carry on. The genius of a good leader is to leave behind him a situation which common sense, without the grace of genius, can deal with successfully."
