No one rejects us, as much as we reject ourselves.

We were taught to say “No” more often than “what if” by our parents and guardians, because they used more “Nos” than “What ifs” on us.

We stop ourselves even before we start anything. We want to see the whole path, before taking a step.

We reject our ideas, we reject our thoughts, we reject our words, we reject our actions, we reject our intent and ultimately, we reject ourselves.

Try replacing “Nos” with “What ifs” in your self-talk. The former triggers inaction and excuses; the latter triggers action and alternatives.
