As part of our upcoming conversation about rejection and alternatives to fearing rejection in sales, check out this special post by my guest blogger and April Tea Topics with Tomasa guest…Penny Sampson, F.I.E.R.C.E. Leadership Life-Stylist
Tell me: what would it be like to live your life without being swallowed up by the concern or need to be liked and accepted, or to constantly please others? What if being yourself as you are – right here and now, flaws and all – was enough? Can you imagine the liberation? What you could accomplish, create, or do with your life?
The possibilities are limitless! The irony is, we know this; we’ve heard it before. The only thing we have to fear is fear itself, and Oscar Wilde said “Be yourself – everyone else is already taken.” So why do we still continue to feel the stifling FEAR of rejection, the need to please others, and the desire to be what they want us to be, instead of being who we authentically are (quirks & blemishes included)?
