"No" is Only the Begining
Updated: Nov 6, 2019
If you haven’t gotten a “no.” Or a “no thank you.” Or an “I’m gonna have to pass.” On your journey towards successfully living your dreams, then your journey probably hasn’t even started yet. Get comfortable with NO. It’s just the BEGINNING of the process! It serves a VITAL role in helping you better formulate your plan, ideas, and vision. It helps you articulate it more clearly. It fuels your passion and desire to succeed. It’s a necessary part of the process. Stop taking it at face value. Stop assuming that the person giving you the “no” is the end-all, be-all to your success. If they don’t like your idea then find someone who does! My first book (a terribly written memoir ) was rejected by EVERY SINGLE listed agent who represents memoirs. That process was a grueling YEAR of Solid “no’s” in which I was told by many agents I should probably stop “trying to write.” That process turned me into a real writer. During all that time I KEPT WRITING. I kept perfecting my craft. I knew that to get one yes, I’d likely have to get 30 no’s. So when those no’s rolled in, I could shake them off and say; “It only takes ONE yes. My ‘yes’ is coming!” #HustleBelieveReceive was turned down by about 20 publishers before three said yes. “No” just means, “not yet.” It just means your not quite ready, or the person/place/thing the “no” is coming from isn’t a good fit for you. If you need proof of this think of how many times your kids ask (nag) you for something? How many times do you say no before eventually caving in and saying yes?
Be that kid!
Was this valuable? All I ask in return is that you like, comment and SHARE this, or tell a friend about the work I'm doing, help spreading the word is the best way you can pay it forward :) xo
