Publisher's Description

Greatness and mediocrity are separated by one thing--how you respond to rejection.

People who crumble beneath the weight of rejection never realize their full potential, but people who learn to use rejection as a catalyst experience fulfillment in their lives.

Nona Jones has experienced her fair share of rejection. Some of her earliest memories are of her mother's rejection, and those feelings persisted throughout her schooling, her career, and her infertility journey. Things that seemed to come easily to others seemed unavailable to Nona--but what could have taken her down the path of failure actually brought her to her greatest achievements.

The secret? Seeing rejection as the gift that it is.

The perfect follow-up to her previous book, Killing Comparison, The Gift of Rejection is a practical guide offering a new, unconventional framework for rejection; instead of being a pain to heal, it becomes a teacher to learn from. Nona shares insightful research, practical steps, and powerful stories from her own life as well as the lives of Bible characters and modern-day trailblazers to help you:

  • Identify the root of rejection and how it's manifesting in your life
  • Pinpoint when the pain of rejection is triggering you and counter it with truth
  • Respond to rejection with resilience and resolve rather than fear and defeat
  • Anchor your identity in who God is calling you to be

Rejection is a gift that can help you build resilience, character, and success. The Gift of Rejection will teach you how.
