Whenever i experience rejection, i try to recall this cliche, "some will, some won't, so what?" Next?

If the rejection is on the personal level, it may a little bit difficult to handle.

If it is related marketing, here is the formula:

There are 3 groups


Probably / may be - fence sitters

Nays - they will never change their mind.

All Of Them form a percentage in every business.

So I am always prepared for the third ones and concentrate mainly on the second.

I agree! I teach my team the art of 'sorting'

Everyone knows that we can't get every person that we meet to join our business. Some people will never join any business. So I look for the ones who will, and make sure that I have the training I need so that when I talk to them, I don't talk them out of joining.

I am afraid that rejection and failure and disappointment are a regular feature of ordinary life, no matter how successful someone may be.

I hate rejection. In the past, I've been guilty of consciously avoiding situations where I might get rejected, both professionally and personally. I often steer clear of men who are “out of my league," and I've frequently held back from telling people my true feelings for fear they won't reciprocate. The last time a man turned me down I retorted (word-for-word, and I'm not proud of this): "You're either kidding yourself or you are just an arse." Ergh.

I'm working on

a) being comfortable with making myself vulnerable and

b) dealing with the inevitable occasional rejection in a dignified manner.

Resilience is learnable, but it takes practise.
