One of the most common attribute in being a successful business is how you handle rejection! No matter how polite a turn down of your sales effort is, at times it can leave you feeling dejected or just sad. If you fail to pick yourself up, that’s it, you fail to become a millionaire or feel fulfilled.
So many of us want to start businesses today but we have the in our minds the word rejection. You live in a society with people of different opinions therefore be ready to be opposed but prepare how you deal with the daily rejection. Aim to believe that you are special and you are the best! Trust me, you do have someone who will embrace you or your products over and over again.
I listened to Godfrey Mariri speak on Star FM about overcoming rejection. How about you visit his Facebook page by clicking Building my Image. The teachings are simple but so powerful, and I know they will help every aspiring business person become what they desire. Below are 3 paragraphs from him.
“It is a fact that we will all have to deal with rejection sometime in our lives. We do not have any control over being rejected but we do have control over how we are going to respond to that rejection, we can either give in with an ” I am useless and sorry for myself” attitude OR we can say “I am created in the image of God and I have unlimited potential” and soldier on.
Positive self-talk is not easy when you are surrounded by negative situations but you can train your mind to think positively no matter how bad your situation is. TRAIN YOUR MIND, training is hard work and can be painful but it brings results. Your mind needs training by repetition in order for it to grow stronger, the bible says “be not conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind”, that is training your mind.
Self-actualization is important because once you KNOW who you are it is impossible for you to be worried by someone who tells you that you are what you are not. Think of it this way, when the teachers of the law said Jesus was delivering by Satan’s power, Jesus did not break down but told them how things really worked in the spirit realm. So when people reject you by saying you are useless you can educate them on how fearfully and wonderfully made you are. “
You can do anything if you put your mind at it. Start you own thing today, oh yes they will say some pretty nasty things but go on you can make it. Think and ponder about this.
To your success!
