  2. 2. What does it mean? • You can freely express your opinions, set your boundaries, direct other people and move about your life.! • You can do all of this without fearing rejection.
  3. 3. What if I fear rejection? • You’re withholding your “personal power”, or right to be just as you are.! • You fear what others think about you, and are giving them unnecessary power to determine how you feel, what you do and even what you think.! • You become powerless and subject to the whims of others.
  4. 4. It’s a mind trick… • These insecurities are all occurring based on your own projections.! • You’re making yourself powerless over what you believe about others.! • It’s a false anticipation of some form of rejection.! • Being uncomfortable in your own skin is like anticipating rejection at every turn.! • You doom yourself to rejection before giving others a chance to respond.
  5. 5. Reality check! • People will reject you in the real world, but not as often as you fear.! • Dealing with occasional actual rejection is a lot easier than perpetual, self- inflicted anticipatory rejection of self-sabotage.! • Realize that what you perceive as powerlessness is nothing more than self- sabotage, and it’s in your power to stop it!
