My First Blog Post!
This is my first blog. This is a new experience for me. When we do something new or make change in our lives, there is always risk involved. Doubts come to our mind. There are many fears that present themselves. One of them is the fear of rejection.
However, if we do not try new things, we cannot make progress. Without trying new things, we might move in a backward direction or experience more pain.
So, this morning I thought of rejection. I reflected on other times when I tried to move down new paths. There were times when I did experience rejection, criticism, people who tried to discourage me. But I have learned that our greatest rejections can provide our most positive directions. I would say, see beyond the bad, look to the possibilities, let uncomfortable feelings nudge you in a better direction. How you reflect on things can bring you closer to your goals of success, of happiness, of living a good life.
Sharing your learnings, your thoughts and experiences can help others. I would love to hear your thoughts. What have you learned about taking risk? What have you learned about trying new things? What have you learned about facing your fears? What have you learned from rejection?
