You have been rejected, damn, life is over! WRONG.
What would life be like if you could truly believe that rejection is a gift? It would dramatically improve your lifestyle and success. Why you ask? Because rejection forces us all to see what we are doing wrong and make an adjustment to get a better result.
Use rejection as a measuring stick. It is merely a signal that our efforts are falling short of the desired outcome. If we can program our minds to think this way, we will eliminate all of the emotional nonsense that stops us dead in our tracks. Misplaced emotion is simply allowing assumptions, most of which are false, to run our lives and force us to make decisions based on wrong information. Ugh.
When people reject us, they are not saying anything personal so don’t take it that way. All they are saying is the value proposition you are putting forth is not worthy of their taking a risk to say yes, at this particular moment in time. So they opt to say the answer of NO RISK, “NO”.
Do not take this personally, clear your mind and evaluate the situation and empathize with the person you are trying to influence to understand what they are looking for. Then simply re-evaluate your message and look at ways for enhancing the power of it so that you can transform that NO into a YES!
Yes, it really is that simple to overcome a rejection and turn it into a positive experience. But only if you are willing to look at rejection as a gift.
Share an experience where you have faced rejection, re-evaluated the situation and turned a NO to a YES!
