Making Friends With Rejection

We all have dreams and goals. What stops us from going out 100% and wholeheartedly to get them?

Often it is the fear of rejection – the fear that someone will say, “No” to us. And so this internal fear stops us before we even start. But what if we could start? What if we didn’t let that fear stop us? What would be possible then?

This video was sent to me by a client. It is 23 minutes long. I urge you to make the time to view it. It raises so many important points, not the least of which is, in my language, “if it’s scary that is a reason to do it.” Your comfort zone will change when you step out of it, repeatedly. You will be amazed.

My favorite lines from this video are:

“If you need something ask for it. You may be accepted or rejected, but you won’t be ignored.”

and

“I gave you six months; I didn’t give you four.”

Go out there and let people say no to you – you’re going to be surprised.
