The rule of rejection is simple. It’s made up of three parts:
A. You won’t get anything if you don’t ask for it, so don’t reject yourself.
B. If the answer is “no,” ask “why?” This may lead to your getting what you wanted, or getting something else that’s close.
C. Remember that rejection doesn’t define you. It’s the way you react to rejection that defines you.
So, if you want to overcome your fear of rejection and get more of what you want, don’t run. Remember the rule of rejection.
When you do, you’ll start turning “no” into “yes.” More important, you’ll change the way you view rejection, forever.
