Rejection is just part of the process for getting anything that’s worth having in life. Whether you are dating, trying to land that promotion, or applying for a loan, you’re going to hear “NO” far many more times in life then you will hear “YES”. The important thing is to remember that every “no” brings you that much closer to a “yes”, and no doesn’t mean forever, it just means “not now.” If you’re not willing to try because you are afraid of hearing the no, then how much closer does that bring you to achieving your goal?
Does a waitress sit there and cry every time someones says “no” to having a coffee or dessert at the end of a meal? Yet she still goes on asking just the same, and eventually someone accepts her offer. And look at little kids. They’re the best example of not taking rejection personally. They do however scream and cry sometimes(which is just another tactic to try and get to that yes, and more times then not it works.)
So I say, bring on the rejection! Embrace it, hold your head up high, and as my dad used to tell me, remember that “success is nothing sure, I’ve cried. It’s failure that will win, when nothings tried.”
