5. Bounce Back From Rejection
Ironically, Harvard Business School rejected Buffett after his interview. But instead of sulking, he headed to Columbia and met Benjamin Graham. Graham is a legend in the investment industry, and he became Buffett's mentor. Much of Buffett's incredible investing success could arguably be credited to Graham and the lessons he taught him.
"Turned down? Who cares, keep going, it happens all the time," said Tom Scuccimarra, national sales manager at M&O Marketing. "You can't take it personally, and you can't let it push you off course of your dreams."
Even if you get rejected from a school or job opportunity, it's important to keep moving forward. If Buffett had quit after Harvard dismissed him, he wouldn't be where he is today.
