Rejected Again?

September 18, 2012

Daily ReadHow Do You Handle Rejection?

Hearing the word “no” time and time again can be frustrating.  But if you are in sales or are an entrepreneur rejection can be a daily part of your life. How you handle rejection will determine if you give up or become even more tenacious and push ahead.  So how do you keep rejection from bringing you down?

  • First, accept that you’ll hear ‘no’ more than you hear ‘yes’.
  •  When you have a truly unique idea or product, view it as a compliment that most people don’t have your vision.
  • Share your idea or product wherever you go.  The more people who see it, the more compliments and encouragement you will get from your ultimate customer – the consumer.
  • Surround yourself with people who believe in you and are actually willing to help. But don’t dismiss all rejection as bad.  Use it as a necessary sounding board which can tell you how to adjust your focus. You should listen to them but don’t take their rejection personally.

An entrepreneur’s life is one of frequent rejection from both potential customers and potential investors. So learning to handle rejection correctly is an essential survival skill.
