Some people try to avoid rejection in every aspect of their lives. They seek perfection and success in every endeavor. But all they do is set themselves up to be unprepared for rejection.

Because once they encounter rejection, it shatters their reality. They’re so used to doing everything perfectly that a rejection means that something is wrong with them. It becomes a big, personal deal — even if it’s not.

You need to accept that rejection is inevitable. It is simply a natural part of life that we all face. The strongest individuals understand this and constantly seek out the possibility of rejection. That’s the only way to internalize that rejection is temporary and a source of power.

So go on a damn rejection spree.

Commit for the next week or month to try and get rejected as often as possible Make it a game — if you get rejected, that’s how you score points and win. 

This one idea is so damn powerful yet few people ever do it. They let their pride get in the way of their growth when they could be accelerating the process.

If you welcome rejection rather than avoid rejection, you will be unphased by it in no time.
