I woke up this morning to a message on my LinkedIn. A man, who invests heavily into Crypto and does a lot of blockchain, denied coming onto my podcast to talk about both topics (it’s very common for those to do so because they’re scared about ruining their reputation — including Forex Traders).
24 hours prior to that, a “spiritualist” who I’ve come across on my Instagram post told me, “oh, due to my bandwidth, I’ll have to decline your offer.” I scratched my head and said, “huh? Well, ok!”
The point I’m trying to make here reverts back to Jack Canfield’s 18th principle: “Some Will, Some Won’t; So What – Someone’s Waiting!”
I’ve brought on millionaire authors, actresses and so many other unbelievable personalities who shared with my audience unbelievable knowledge.
Rule #1: Acknowledge what you’ve already done!
Sure, I don’t get many responses, but at least I got two that officially rejected me. In the future, when I’m making it big, guess who will probably come back? Just saying…this is what always happens.
“If you are going to be successful, you are going to need to learn how to deal with rejection. Rejection is a natural part of life. You get rejected when you aren’t picked for the team, don’t get the part in the play, don’t get elected, get denied, don’t get into the graduate school or college of your choice, don’t get the job or promotion you wanted, don’t get the sale, don’t get the raise you wanted, don’t get the appointment you requested, don’t get the date you asked for, don’t get the permission you requested, or you get fired.” – Jack Canfield.
However, rejection is simply a myth! It’s a concept you hold in your ear! Example, back in 2006, I asked a girl name Marja to the senior prom. She said, “oh, I have an agreement with someone else — sorry!” Was it a lie? Absolutely…but the simple fact is I wasn’t suppose to go with her to prom because it would’ve been cringing. Instead, I went with a triplet couple and had a great time.
Just Say “Next!”
Colonel Harland Sanders left his home with his pressure cooker and his special recipe for cooking Southern fried chicken, he received 1,009 rejections before he found someone to believe in his dream.
Because he was rejected over a thousand times, there are now over 10k KFC’s in more than a hundred countries around the world.
“Don’t get stuck in your fear or resentment. Move on to the next person. It’s a numbers game. Someone is waiting to say yes.”
