We are all so worried about rejection.

We hide to avoid it.

But why?

Why is anticipating it so painful?

Meadow taught me something about this the other day.

She said to a student: If you were handing out $100 bills, would you be worried about people saying no?  Would you feel badly about yourself if they did say no?

Probably not.

Why not?

Because you know what you are offering to them is valuable.

You know it's their loss.

But wait.

Aren't you at least as valuable as $100?


Yes. You are.
