It made him appreciate the moment more and come to terms with the fact we only have a limited time here on earth.

The Moment HQ talks to Tania de Jong 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.
