Afraid Of Rejection

Being afraid of rejection is a huge obstacle for people to overcome. However, if you are building a business, your success relies on getting leads. In order to get leads, you have to expose as many people as possible to your business.  You can’t be concerned with what people think of you.

More Exposure, More Success

The more people you talk to, the more exposure you get. So you have to decide how important it is to build your business. Talking to family and friends can be more difficult for some than talking to strangers. If you talk to people you know, it in some ways holds you accountable and you may feel embarrassed if you are not successful. You cannot have success without having some failure along the way. You need to take that into account and be willing to make changes and continue to move forward. You are not a failure unless you give up.

There are many excuses why we don’t do things. I actually thought that if I talked to everyone, I would run out of people to talk to. Silly, I know. But that was how I rationalized not doing what I didn’t want to do because I was afraid of rejection. If you don’t ask, you won't know the answer and you can't move on. So just get it over with.

Visualization Can Help

Public speaking and runners have the same thing in common. You can visualize a scenario in your mind that can help you with a difficult situation. People have a hard time speaking in public. An amusing way of helping with the stress is to picture the audience naked. Runners can picture themselves running the race and winning. This concept can also help with talking to people. You can picture the entire conversation and the reaction you will have to it. Obviously you won’t be able to cover all the scenerio’s that may happen but it’s a good way to realize that someone saying no is not the end of the world.

It’s Your Choice

Putting off something you feel is unpleasant can be one of the worst things you can do. Talking to people is not as bad as you think. But if you continue to put it off because you are afraid of rejection, the stress can make it even harder to do. Just make the decision to do it and follow through.Once you do, it will make it much easier to do the next time.

Create A Schedule That Works For You

Creating a schedule that works for you is one of the most important things you can do when building your online business. If you don’t, it can be very difficult to get the required steps done. If this happens, you could get discouraged and spend less and less time on them, which will cause you to fail.

The most common daily tasks:

  • Posting on your blog
  • Determining keywords
  • Using social media sites and forum groups
  • In person meetings, emailing and phone calls

Work At Your Pace

Writing blog posts come easy for some and not so easy for others. Don’t get discouraged if this is the case for you. Each person is different and you need to determine the time it takes for you. It is much more difficult for me to get one written than it does for others.

What is the best way to handle having to do all this stuff if you have been working all day and your mind is drawing a blank?

Each person works at a different pace, especially if you are brand new. As you get better, the time it takes should go down for each task. Creating a schedule that works for you is based on that time and can be adjusted as you get better. It may be that you will have to do each task over a couple days. That is ok. As long as you are consistent, you can still accomplish your goals.

Get Someone Else To Do It

Not everyone is efficient at doing everything. That is why outsourcing is an option in doing tasks you don’t care to do or you are not any good at. However, you should really learn to do each task prior to outsourcing it so you can ensure the task is being done correctly. Outsourcing has a cost but can be well worth it.

Ask For Help

If your schedule is full and you don’t have much time available, see if your family is willing to take over some of the chores around the house to free up some additional time. Creating a schedule that works for you will help you accomplish the necessary tasks to build your online business. Success is build from consistency so ensure that you plan accordingly.

You Must Step Out Of Your Comfort Zone



Anytime you learn, you have to step out of your comfort zone. If you do not, you will never learn anything. People do this on a daily basis but may not think about it. It depends on how uncomfortable you feel when you are doing something new. If you have to do something new in front of a bunch of people, you would feel more uncomfortable than if you were learning something at home with no one around.


What's Stopping You?

Why are people afraid of change?

  • Afraid of failing.
  • Afraid of what other people will think.
  • Stuck in the past-can't move forward
  • Don't deserve success.
  • Security.
  • No vision.


A Story

I like to use this story as an example because it shows how basic our fear of change is. My son wanted to go into the Army because he wanted some time to decide how he wanted to spend the rest of his life. The career he picked wasn't really what he thought it would be and decided it wasn't for him.



I discussed the fact that he may be sent to war once he was finished with basic training and he wasn't concerned with that. I would have thought that would be a big factor but it wasn't. His main concern was what would happen to his friends when he was gone for such a long period of time and what would that do when he came home. I told him there would be less of a change than what he thinks there would be. When he came back after 4 years, everyone was still around and the social part of his life resumed as if he hadn't left. Amazing how that happens. Experiencing different things allowed him to decide what he wanted to do in life.

It is amazing that if you are willing to step out of your comfort zone, you will experience so much more out of life.



It is difficult to do new things and many people will not be happy with what you are doing and why you are doing it. You have to decide if you want to live your life making others happy or making yourself happy. If you decide that making yourself happy is more important, then you must step out of your comfort zone. It will require you to learn new things, implement what you have learned and some of it may be uncomfortable for you. The advantage is, you won't have to give up everything you know as in the example above. The most dramatic change may be changing who you spend time with. Meaning more like minded people who will support you in your endeavor.
