When I was in my 20’s I had a friend who was rather plain and average looking. Yet he was always getting dates with attractive women who were very nice people. I asked him what his secret was and he said:
“It’s simple. I only ask attractive, nice women for dates. And I know of every 20 I ask out, 17 or 18 are going to turn me down cold. But that means I always know I’m going to have two nice attractive girls to go out with. What guy is going to complain about that?”
As you might imagine, it didn’t take him too long to find the woman of his dreams and marry her. He then became a very successful consultant who always has a nice stable of top-notch clients. I asked him his secret to getting great clients and he said:
“I only pursue prospects I think would make ideal clients. And I know that of every 50 I approach, 45 or 46 of them are going to turn me down cold. Two may show some interest and then turn me down—but those final one or two will become great clients.”
My friend makes six figures a year and spends every evening with the woman of his dreams (although I’m sure they argue a little here and there). The reason he has accomplished this is because he knew intuitively that rejection and what he learned from it would pave the way to achieving everything he set his sights on.
Knowing that rejection would ultimately lead him to exactly what he wanted—it never really seemed to bother him. In fact, it always seemed to put a little grin on his face.
When you acknowledge and accept that rejection paves the road to success—rejection will no longer bother you either. In fact, it will only serve as a great reminder that you are out there trying to make things happen!
When you accept this counter-intuitive principle as fact, you are well on your way to attracting all the success you can handle.
So put yourself out there and enjoy getting rejected! Believe me, it will ultimately pay off for you.
