The Art of Accepting Rejection

Rejection. We have all encountered it at some time or another in our lives. And I think most would agree that it is usually not a very nice feeling. But it is a fact of life. Yet, when it comes to network marketing,
most people take rejection too seriously
and for some reason they do not know
how to deal with it. People seem to think
that rejection is a personal refusal
to accept them as a person.
This is not what your prospects are saying
to you when they reject your business
opportunity. When they say no to to you they are simply saying now is not the right time for them. Nothing more. They are not saying they don't like you. However, people do not handle rejection well and many will take it so personal that they will actually quit their MLM. They think that people are actually telling them "I don't like you!" How easily our feelings are hurt! If you want to build a successful networking business you will have to learn how to accept rejection. In other words, learn how to not let your feelings be hurt by those who say no to you. It has nothing to do with you personally. It has everything to do with the prospect. What the prospect is usually saying is that they are not ready at this particular time. Circumstances do not allow them to get involved but in the future their circumstances may change. If and when that happens they may view things differently. Those who do not learn how to accept rejection usually do not stay in the business long enough to build an organization. Once you can learn how to put aside your personal feelings when it comes to rejection, you will be on your way to building a successful network. The art of accepting rejection is not some secret formula. It is simply learning to accept that everyone is not ready to have their own home based business. If you want to build a successful network marketing business, learn to accept rejection. --Scott Cameroon.
