I am convinced that a great amount of success comes from realizing we have nothing to lose.
Ask someone for a date?
They weren't going out with you to begin with.
If they say no you are just where you started. Actually better off because you can mark them off your list and move on to someone or something that will work out for you.
Apply for a job?
You don't have it now. So what if they say no?
We talk about rejection, but what really is rejection?
It is usually when we take someone's choice in a practical matter and say to ourselves it is a choice that has to do with our person. In other words WE make it personal.
Still for that to matter, we have to say it has to do with us and the person that is rejecting us is right. Even if we believe their choice whether to buy encyclopedias from us or magazine subscriptions or whatever is all about us, we have to believe they are right for it to affect us emotionally.
So go for the things you want in 2017, but don't yet have.
You can't be any worse off if you don't decide other people know your true value better than you do!
