Rejection doesn’t mean you are not good enough.
A man called his son and showed him a drum shaped old watch.
“This is a watch my grandfather gave me. It is more than 150 years, but before I give it to you. I want you to go to watch shops and know how much they are willing to buy it”, he said.
The son went to the first watch shop. The watchmaker priced it 5 dollar.
He went to the second place and the watchmaker offered to pay 10 dollar.
He went to the third place,
“What kind of watch is this. This watch has no value and I can’t buy this nonsense. Take this and get out of my shop,” the third watchmaker yelled.
The young boy went home feeling sad. He told his dad what happened.
“Don’t be sad my boy. Go to the museum and know how much they can buy the watch”, the dad said.
The young boy went to the museum. He returned.
“Dad, they offered me one million dollar for it”.
His dad looked at him and calmly said “Son, I want you to learn that “rejection” doesn’t mean you are not good enough. Those who reject you fail to notice your worth. The right people know your worth. You are great and of great value. Never look down on yourself”.
