The fear of rejection is a big reason why it’s difficult to get rid of shyness from your being. Think about all the moments in the past that has made you feel the fear of being humiliated, getting rejected, and most importantly, being disappointed when you went for the things you wanted most. In the last post, I mentioned that in order to get rid of shyness, you need to understand that it’s based off of emotion, not logic. How easy do you think it would be if someone said, “this is what I’m suppose to do” and go for it no matter how many times they failed. The problem may not even be failure but the possibility of failing. Gaining confidence in certain areas of you life helps you overcome no self confidence in that specific area of your life.
When you want to get rid of shyness, there are a few things you need to get over
1. Fear of rejection
2. Fear of failure
3. Fear of the unknown
There are more out there but these are the most common. Once you override your emotions and fears and do what needs to be done, then you’re on your way to becoming a person who gets what they want. Getting what you want is an amazing feeling. Your confidence overflows and it flows on to others. Pretty soon you’ll help people overcome their shyness. You’ll think back to when you felt the fear, and now you’re above and beyond it.
To get rid of shyness, you must be very patient and take baby steps. This is where the challenge lies. You want to be confident right now and get over the fear already. When you open your mind to the possibilities that are out there for you, you get impatient and pretty soon you’ll get disappointed because you’re still stuck in your ways. When you add patience and gradual work into the mix, you’ll notice your success start to accelerate faster, even though you’re not going at a fast pace. Within a few months you’ll surprise yourself of how long you’ve come in such a short period of time.
In closing, I would like to say that the fear of rejection is all in your head. There is a way for you to overcome this dilemma and start becoming a person with massive confidence no matter how much fear you have at the present moment. Don’t let the fear of rejection keep you back from getting what you want.
