I got this idea recently that I want to make every post link to a self-improvement training post. I blog about fashion, it’s more about visual imagination, which you can feel but hard to express. Therefore, most of my posts are actually thoughts about life and work. I think it’s great to save the words for my entrepreneur mindset, where the other hemisphere of my brain cells are located.
THE FEAR OF GETTING REJECTED – Rejection is the dread that we are all afraid of, but can’t avoid. The difference now is not how can we live life rejection free, but how can we turn rejection into a positive reaction that leaves a lasting impression, and draw a correct conclusion so that we can end up getting an amelioration. I’ve always been a proud girl as you probably can tell. How afraid am I of getting rejected? Just as afraid of my website crashing when I wake up the next day, just kidding, but this is how afraid of rejection I am, just like anyone else. I recently watched a TED talk by Jia Jiang: What I learned from 100 days of rejection, which I found quite inspiring. For the most of the time I run away from the situations that I will most likely get rejected, without recognizing that I actually run away from opportunities at the same time. Jia Jiang points out that how the fear of rejection could stop people purchasing their dreams but once you get rid of it, open up to embrace all kinds of rejections either in your personal or professional life, you will find out that you actually get more than the losses you are afraid of. Just like the old saying – if you never try, you will never know, right?
Turn your BURNING RED into fireworks, and make it to be light in your life.
