Tania de Jong talks about her Life Changing Moment:
Overcoming Rejection to Believe in Herself Again.
The rejection and feelings of inadequacy in Tania’s life all started with the words, “Tania I don’t think you should bother having singing lessons you’re not good enough”, which came from her friend at age 14.
A similar incident then happened at age 23, while she was studying singing professionally in London.
Tania could’ve easily lived the rest of her life (like many do) consumed by fear, feelings of worthlessness and a mindset of “I’m not good enough.” And while those things did play out for her, she found it within herself to overcome these and pursue singing, the very thing that today has made her successful in her own right.
Singing has really defined Tania’s life and helped her find out who she is and above all brought her a lot of joy. It’s also inspired all the businesses she’s gone to set up.
“If I would’ve believed everything I was told, I wouldn’t have achieved anything.”
Her grandmother was the first person to invent the first foldable umbrella. So it’s no doubt that Tania comes from a line of people who have a thick skin, creative minds and use their imagination to live out their dreams.
