The surprising thing about rejection is how much we allow the fear of it to impact our lives, when in actuality, increasing the rate at which we’re rejected can be extremely beneficial. Putting ourselves in a position where rejection is possible is a sign that we’re attempting something that has the potential to push our boundaries – and by doing so, provide us with something we actually want. And even if we don’t get what we seek, the act of trying to get it provides us with valuable information that can aid us in future attempts & endeavors.
The fact is, by embracing rejection we increase the rate at which we get things we want. No, we won’t always get what we seek, but our attempts at actively getting it are far more likely to yield positive results than if we sit back and do nothing out of fear of being rejected.
