Live long enough you will encounter rejection. Be strong enough, you will learn how to conquer it. Reject rejection.
As I’m sure you may have heard before feelings are fickle. But yet, it’s our feelings that paralyzes us. It can have many stuck mentally. Physically, you can’t move because of thoughts.
“What if they don’t like me?”
“What if they don’t buy my new products?”
“What if this new relationship don’t work out?”
“What if I fail?”
“What if I succeed?”
The fear from rejection causes many traps. Those traps of insecurities, unworthiness, uncertainty, and not being accepted causes open doors. The obvious ones are bad relationships, living in complacency, over achievement and being validated by others.
Validation comes in various ways. Seeking the attention from others for likes on social media. Going to events to fit in a box. Going broke trying to look rich. Being in toxic relationships just to have “somebody”. The list goes on.
Your worthiness cannot be dependent on an opinion of another. You will never win that way. Why? One day they can love you and hate you the next. You must remain constant with you while making room for improvement. As a man (woman) thinks is his heart, so is he. Proverbs gives us many words of wisdom.
But what if…you reject rejection? What does that really look like?
In a society that gets wealthy from people not feeling secure about themselves, it’s almost rebellious to be ok with saying, “SO WHAT, I’m okay with being me.”
Here’s the bottom line: Anyone that has some pinnacle of success has dealt with rejection. And still do. The common denominator with successful people is that they are persistent. Win or lose, they kept going.
Rejection is underlying fear. So this year, this moment…..reject rejection.
Act on it. What’s your it?
Let’s go back to the basics. Identity. The lack thereof is the root of rejection.
God, the creator of the universe thought so much of you to create you too. As it is stated in Jeremiah 1:5, “Before I formed you, I knew you. Before you were born, I set you apart.”
The reason we can have issues with identity is based on outward perception. You were already set apart before you began to fight with fitting in.
God knew about his own rejection the entire time on Earth, but that did not change the way he loved.
Be confident. Then you will never lack. Whatever you create, someone will respond. When you love, love will come back. Just because that bad relationship didn’t work is a strong indicator there is someone ready to love you after encountering a counterfeit (or a few). You can’t fail if you don’t try. You can’t succeed if you’re not willing to put yourself out there.
Reclaim your power and your time. Reject rejection.
