Is Fear of Rejection Holding you back?


It is a natural human desire to be liked by other people. Female entrepreneurs may hold themselves back because we don't want to face the fear of rejection. It doesn't have to be that way. Hearing ‘no' is a natural part of doing business. Not everyone wants or needs our services. It's never personal.

I remember being upset when someone unsubscribed to my newsletters even though the percentage of those opting out was tiny compared to those who were subscribing, opening, reading and responding to my messages. As human beings and entrepreneurs we sometimes overlook the positives. Because we love our creative work we tend to protect it from rejection. It is great to establish safety for ourselves in the beginning of the creative process, provided we don't allow the safety to prevent us from steeping big when we are ready to do so.

Over time, I have come to realize that people who stick with me for a long time are actually part of my tribe. It is a much better use of my time to serve those who benefit from my message.

I am no longer afraid of bombarding my clients. I am here to serve them and cannot play safe and small by holding back. I trust that my tribe welcomes the messages as a means of communication and connection.

Confirmation of the fact that I should continue to send consistent messages to my tribe came to me at the beginning of this year with a beautiful email excellence award. I was really touched to receive the award.

I would encourage you to continue to express your brilliance and greatness. Don't let the fear of rejection hold you back from shining your light.
