I think we all grow up with some form of bogeymen in our closets, some form of rejection that has left its mark on our life. I know I have and sometimes it holds me back from stepping fully into life. What I’ve come to realize is in the end it’s not what happened that matters, it’s what we do with it. It’s how we turn it around that matters.
Some of us have limited ourselves by dreading the moment when someone somewhere will say “no” to our idea, whether it’s a proposal to advance our new business, or maybe it was our dream to make a difference in the world. Regardless of how big or how small the idea, if we walked away because of the fear of rejection, it limited us.
