Doing what you love is the cornerstone of having abundance in your life. ~Wayne Dyer [tweet this]

Do what you love and love what you do

First of all, not many of us have those kind of choices. Most of us are told what we will do when we grow up right from our childhood.

If it wasn’t for the fear of rejection, most people would love to be in business for themselves. It is the fear of rejection that stops many people from even starting their own business, while many others give up early on when they are faced with a few rejections.

Rejections Make You A Champion - Angry Women Rejecting An Offer

Even though I have been pretty confident (my mother thought I was overconfident) from my childhood, I have been intimidated by rejections very much in the early days of my career as an entrepreneur. It was unacceptable to me that somebody would actually reject my offer.
