Rejection can happen
Here we go. Another day in the office and before some interesting meeting with a potential client or business owner. What a day! Which brings me straight to my subject of today’s post – rejection.The meeting earlier today was again unsuccessful in the case of selling another product or having somebody to join my business as a partner. However, I think it all depends on how you see it. You hear it at business functions, meetings and read it in books and still it is so difficult to accept that not everybody will like your product or is into what I am doing. I think every successful person went through these periods of rejection of either the product or the business idea. Maybe, I should try what Jerry Yang, co-founder of yahoo, did in order to overcome his fear of rejection. He literally went on the street and talked to complete strangers about anything that came into his mind and got many, many times rejected and people gave him weird looks.
At the end, I want to find people I can work with, that are ambitious and want to make their dreams come true. There people might be difficult to find, but they are out there – at least I hope! So, here is the question that I have in my head all day – where do I find these people? They must be somewhere and I will find them.In a recent meeting with a very successful business man, I was told that every time I talk to a person about my business idea and the products is worth about £300. This is actually quiet amazing considering that this chat will only take about an hour or two. This is quiet good hourly rate!
I promised myself that I will not give up until I have told enough people about my business idea, so that I cam make sure that I can have the opportunity to decide every morning what I want to do today. Sounds great? It does!!!!!!!!
But first, I need to some work, as it does come from nothing and freedom is at least a great thing to look forward to and worth putting some extra effort into it. What would you be willing to give up for the freedom to decide each day what you would like to do today?
