5 Ways To Deal With Criticism And Rejection

But according to celebrity hypnotherapist Marisa Peer, there are five simple yet effective ways to make yourself immune to criticism and rejection, which you can apply in your everyday life — starting today.

How To Make Yourself Immune To Criticism


From small remarks by a stranger on social media to dismissive comments from a trusted family member or friend, rejection can have a huge impact on how we feel.

But here’s a huge secret: you can choose not to let rejection in.

And, quite frankly, if you want to achieve something huge, make something new, or be someone great, it’s necessary to figure out how to deal with rejection. Criticism comes with the territory. The more you shine, the more criticism you’ll receive.

Yes, research shows that we feel social pain in the same brain region where we feel physical pain. We can feel destabilized, angry, sad, or indignant when rejection occurs. But those feelings are often self-inflicted.

According to Marisa Peer, our brains are wired to the negative, which is why we have a tendency to remember and focus on the things that went wrong. We can have a great day, but we’ll remember that one thoughtless comment about our work, our looks, our energy. That’s what sticks.

You’re not alone. Marisa has worked with celebrities, CEOs, and international political leaders. Even the world’s most successful people still struggle to deal with rejection (sometimes the most).

Still, you can make yourself immune to criticism. As hard as it is to believe, it’s actually quite easy to not let rejection in.

You can choose what to let in.

You can enjoy the empowering beliefs, habits, and thought patterns of super achievers. And you can free yourself from the fear of rejection and the sabotaging nature of self-doubt.
