Rejected for a purpose

Presenter: Ms Belz Mabandla (OK ’98)

Rejection is something we will all, at some point in our lives have had to come face to face with. While it is never easy, it is how we handle our rejection which will determine how we move forward.

This talk by Old Kingswoodian, Ms Belz Mabandla will look at how one should handle rejection. Ms Mabandla will use her own experiences and life’s journey to reflect on how being rejected from a position in her workplace, turned out to be the catalyst which brought about a whole new set of avenues and opportunities for her.

For Belz the message is simple: “The future is not ahead of us but lies within us. Let us see beyond our eyes and live for the unexpected. Sometimes we have to trust the wait, and know that we will find our place and our purpose”.

“There is going to be a hundred thousand doors slammed in your face before one opens, so feel ok about taking rejection.”
