Rejection - Dare to be Rejected

Many of you may be wondering why it is important to allow yourself to be rejected. It's because the people who have no fear of rejection take lots of risks and go very far.

Rejection is just a fact of life. Not everyone will want you or the service or product that you are selling. However, when you learn how to handle rejection gracefully you will find that the residual effects will be very positive.

When you present yourself or something that you are offering to a person or a group of people and they "reject" you right away, thank them for taking the time to listen and than give them the opportunity to contact you in the future if something changes. This simple act of graciousness on your part will leave a positive impression and they may be inclined to mentally file you away for a later time or pass your information on to a person or company who may in fact benefit from your service. Don't be afraid to ask them if you can have their contact information if it seems appropriate. Pushiness is neither attractive nor effective so don't be the "hard salesman." Relax and make the person feel comfortable around you. Who knows, you may just end up making a new friend. Positive minded people understand that you can never have to many positive minded friends so if this happens, you still end up coming out as a winner.

I hope that in reading this you have been inspired to push yourself to the limits and to move beyond your comfort zone. Rejection is not the end of the world and you should not stress over it. Everyone experiences it on a regular basis so don't take it personally or start questioning yourself. Just concentrate on doing the best you can everyday, looking for ways to improve, and allowing people to see the real you.

Give thanks to God for this timely reminder. You are an amazing person and you are going to go very far.

  1. What if you are rejected by a person?

  2. The principle is the same. Rejection is a fact of life. If a person rejects you, move on. Don't take it personally. It's just chemistry. Working hard at getting someone to accept you is a waste of time and not worth it for you. Focus on people who accept you for who you are but in order to do that, you have to know who you are and accept yourself. Thank you so much for your comment and I hope this helps. :)
