009: Turn Rejection into Progress with This Old-School Mind Hack

If you’re facing a lot of rejection, here’s an old-school hack I learned early on in my sales career. 

You might have heard this before: The trick is to just turn every rejection as a stepping stone on the way to your goal.

Work out the math. If out of 100 people you ask for a yes, 95 give you a no, and you want to get 1 yes per day, then make it your daily goal to get 20 nos. 

In this episode I dig deeper into why this reframing technique works, share some personal stories, and a few extra ideas to help you make it even more effective.

What’s your way of handling rejection? I’d love to hear from you on Twitter or LinkedIn. Already gotten a lot of great responses in these threads:
