In my book The High Diving Board, I address seven paralyzing fears that can get between you and success. One of these, the fear of rejection, the fear of being told “no,” is perhaps the worst of all. Fear of rejection can stop you from asking for the things you need in life: help, support, money, a date, a job, a referral, a sale—the list goes on. 

As I explain in the book, victims of this fear can become overwhelmed to the point of debilitation. “They become tongue-tied. Their paralysis makes it impossible for them to pick up the phone. They’ll actually avoid the person they want to ask for help, going as far as walking across the room, or leaving it altogether. They break out in a sweat at the mere thought of asking for what they want.” Not exactly an ideal situation.
