There isn’t one who hasn’t faced “No.” It is kind of a precondition to hear multiple no before you can get to yes. Whether you are trying to get your desired job, start a business, raise funding, get a promotion, or get the proposal approved. Numerous door knocking, follow-ups, presentations, and conversation – yet you face no.
However, you look at people having the success score with getting to yes, you will find that they keep bouncing back in spite of hearing no multiple time. They will hear no, rework on their weaknesses, and knock on another door. In my opinion, the key to handle rejections and emerge as a winner out of it lies in paying attention to the quality, not the number of rejections. Every time when you hear a rejection, pay attention to the feedback you receive, detect the friction, strengthen your proposition and get ready to hunt for another door.
It takes time to learn how to handle rejection, but gradually your mind will prepare to handle the rejections as after every rejection, you will step forward to knowing what people want, what are the unmet need that people have, what’s out there in the reality, and how to improve your offering to get closer to achieve your goals.
The result? You’ll be more actively participate in achieving your goals and rejection will act as your tools for growth and embrace your life with the accomplishments you have chosen to be one.
