I think it's safe to say that business is 90% mental.
When I talk to people who want to start businesses but haven't, or they aren’t seeing success in their business, a lot of their problems stem from their mentality.
I constantly go back and forth with our accountability coach for the AffluentAcademy to get feedback as to what's going on with our students.
One of the main problems we've been seeing recently is demotivation caused by rejection.
Which is really what I want to discuss with you today.
I'm going to be very blunt with you and tell you something that you probably don't want to hear.
If you can't get over rejection, you will NEVER be successful in business. That’s just the way it is.
Rejection comes with the territory and it shouldn't be something that you are scared of!
You have to embrace it!
You have to understand that words can do nothing to you, if they do something to you, it's purely mental.
Outside of someone physically harming you, there's not much someone can do to you if your mindset is rock solid.
Sure, in the moment it sucks, but you just have to remind yourself that you are one rejection closer to making that next sale, you are one rejection closer to success in your life, and you are one rejection closer to achieving all of your dreams.
Business is a marathon not a Sprint and success comes to the toughest individual in the valley.
The best advice I can give you is that when your mind starts panicking and you get all stressed out, stop thinking and remove yourself and your emotions from the situation.
Understand this is necessary, breathe, and know this is just temporary.
Because that’s not you panicking, it’s your mind, and you are in control.
You are in front of the steering wheel.
So take control of your thoughts, and if that means telling yourself 100times rejection is nothing, so be it.
Persistence is what will bring you massive success in business
That's persistence with your mindset, persistence with your sales outreach, and persistence in your ability to deliver to your clients.
Dating is such a perfect example of this.
If you see someone you think is attractive, why not introduce yourself and tell them you think they're attractive?
The worst answer they can give you is no.
Confidence is knowing that if they say no, it’s their loss, not yours.
And this carries over to business, especially in digital marketing.
You are literally presenting the opportunity to business owners for them to be able to make more revenue.
They need you, and when you approach every situation with that confidence, rejection means nothing.
Now that doesn’t mean walking around with an inflated ego and acting like you own the world.
Walk humbly, but know your worth.
I'll leave you with this...
Rejection is temporary, regret lasts a lifetime.
