#8 Overcoming Fear of Rejection

This is where despair and frustration can really be an obstacle. It took me several interviews to land my job and along the way, there were several rejections. Like most people, I tended to take this personally. So, what I ended up doing was writing the word NO on a small slip of paper and placed it my top pocket. Why? Because I could say to myself: ”I already have the NO in my pocket” I actually used this in a few interviews and pulled out the little slip of paper. I then said: “Sir, I already have the NO, what I’m looking for is a YES !” This helped close the deal.
