Here’s a question for you: How many total “no’s” did you personally obtain yesterday?  Last week?  Last month?  Where are you for the year?  Do you know?  Well, you should.

Most people, if they actually counted the number of times they hear “no” during a typical day or week (which we recommend they do) would be shocked to see how low the number actually is.

If you don’t know your number, it’s time for you to start counting every “no” you hear, because the very act of counting your “no’s” will increase your no-awareness and that, in turn, will enhance your no-focus.

Are we saying that you must love “no” or you won’t succeed?

It is true that there are many people who never become comfortable with failure and rejection, but are highly successful nonetheless. These people keep “failing forward” in spite of their feelings.

Now, if the same person could learn to do more than “tolerate” failure and rejection…  and, perhaps, one day even learn to enjoy being rejected and hearing NO, then the journey itself could also be rewarding, not just the destination.
