Hanging onto the status quo feels safe, even if you are not happy with your current situation.
Whether you want to travel the world, write the Great American novel or ask the girl that sits next to you for a date, the fear of rejection may stop you from reaching your full potential.
But reality finds a way of stomping on those dreams with big ol’ boots.
Back in high-school, I started studying martial arts; Tae Kwon Do and Kenpo primarily.
We have a primal need to be loved and wanted and rejection is the absolute polar opposite of that.
Whether it’s on the playground, in the locker room, at the office, or with a significant other, no one wants to feel like they are not good enough and not wanted. Positively handling rejection has a lot to with your mindset.
By developing short-term and long-term goals, you can use any and all rejection you experience to your advantage.
There is a saying that goes something like: A mistake is never a mistake unless you don’t learn from it.
