Make ‘no’ your vitamin!

Motivational speaker Les Brown taught me the following lesson, ‘Make NO your vitamin!’.  If you are trying to be successful, you need to be willing to accept rejection and keep moving forward.  He tells a story about when he was trying to get a job at a radio station and the manager kept sending him away.  He went back everyday with the same enthusiasm and continued to be sent away.  Finally, the station manager gave him a chance and worked hard and waited for his opportunity to become an on-air personality.

Turn to this advice whenever I am working applying for homes, promotions, jobs, etc.  There is often many rejections on the way to success and you need to persevere and look for the next opportunity.  When one door closes, another door opens.

Never stop believing in yourself!  Talk to you tomorrow 🙂
