I can both recall being grateful for having my ass kicked, and enjoying the karma of the 'kicker' finding them! 
'Rejection is Protection' . . . also goes for defeat. If indeed there is such a thing. We dodge so many bullets in our lives, while throwing tantrums about what we did not get that we thought we wanted at the time.

PS. By 'someone' . . . do we mean 'God'?

Holy Crap-ola.  Just this week. Fired a contractor.  It was NOT pretty.  He disrespected me. He disrespected my clients. His attitude was horrible.

Martial arts training.  During part of the black belt testing process there was combat.  I took a punch straight to the face, it was not what I expected and me pause but I kicked my attacker's ass regardless and without any downtime.

I take this question on a positive note...
I worked with a trainer years ago and she worked me hard. Just when I probably would have given up (if I was doing it alone), I saw  the results that I never would have achieved had it not been for her "kick assery" help!

I've never actually thanked the sender BUT .... I will agree that later when you look back, you were being taught a good lesson & you were screaming & kicking about going down the wrong path. Definately a karma thing but I can't say I ever thanked the 'road block'.

This has a sorta AA feel to it about making amends. You go back to that person 'someday' & say 'ya, know, thanks for kicking my ass in 1975'. It took me down a different road.

Unfortunately I was too young to know the a** kicking was going to be good for me.  It wasn't done in a kind way but, as it turned out, was a good thing.   By the time I was old enough to put it in perspective, it was too late to say thanks.  I'm sure they know.   Those a** kickings shape who we are, depending on how we use them (for our good... or not).

  Physically?   Only when I was a kid, by authority figures.  Dad used a belt.  Mom used a paddle.  Granddaddy used a rolled-up newspaper.  Rosie (our maid/nanny) used a switch.  I am grateful to all of them.

Getting rejected in real estate is common if you are prospecting. In my case it has been referral all along.
