I came across another fine article today. This one was titled “Top 7 Ways to Communicate Effectively” by Pablo Golub. The single most important point of this article is number 6, which reads:
“Follow along…In my hand I am holding a check for a million dollars. I crumble it up. It’s still worth a million dollars. I step on it, it’s still worth a million dollars, I start rubbing it on the floor with my shoe, and it’s till worth a million dollars.
You are worth a lot more than a million dollars. In fact, your worth is immeasurable. Therefore, there is no such thing as ‘rejection’ as you’re always worth the same no matter what. Nobody can reject you because nobody can change your worth. Moreover, don’t be afraid of something (rejection) that doesn’t exist. Take risks, ask for what you want, and eventually you will get what you want.”
This is a very important life lesson that we all should strive to live by. Don’t be affraid of rejection because rejection doesn’t really exist. No one, other than your self, can change your self worth. You choose your thoughts and how to react to life.
