Interviews in Times Square NYC

This past week I had the privilege of spending the day in Times Square, New York City, where I was able to interview numerous people on the subject of rejection. Stan Doll and Austin Melendez accompanied me and made the interviews a success.

My heart was to get a pulse of various perspectives on the subject of rejection. I did not set them up, except to simply ask, “What comes to mind when you hear the word, ‘rejection’?”

My latest book helps the reader identity a rejection mindset and how it affects our identity, relationships and wholeness. My desire was to hear from everyday people how our personal breakdown in relationship effect us moving forward.

Both on camera and off camera, the responses I got were incredible. What each person shared actually confirmed how rejection affects people’s lives, embedding a rejection mindset into our life view. Each person shared from their current life view and experience.

Maybe it was a heart wrenching break-up, a perceived failure in relationship or a painful experience growing up. Each person expressed their own story, showing us that our relational grid affects how we process future relational interactions.

We all long for love, acceptance and a sense of belonging. The answers I got from those on the street all express what a rejection mindset seeks to attack, keeping us from walking securely in who God says that we are.

What a tremendous experience and I am grateful to all those who participated! Enjoy!
