How to channel rejection (University)

I was recently rejected from a uni I really had my heart set on, and I always underestimate my ability / never get too far ahead of myself, but it feels in hindsight that I did this time. But, it just wasn't to be unfortunately.
I know realistically I've still got applications running at other top universities and I am grateful. But I can't help but feel a burn to just really, really prove what would've been my first choice wrong now - and it feels it has given me a kick to really really revise. I'm not even annoyed at the rejection, I'm more set on this now. I feel this may come off slightly odd; so I was wondering how I can help this fuel my revision in a healthy manner and who else may have thought the way I do. I really do want to achieve the best elsewhere now this has happened.
