Funny how many times people let the fear of something prevent them from doing things. Let’s think about this a little…
People tell me they get the pyramid objection, their friends won’t talk to them, they had someone get up and storm out at a meeting, etc. Then I ask when exactly that happened, or did it just happen in their mind?
It’s amazing how often they then get a sheepish look and admit these things are fears they have, but haven’t really had happen. Or happened back in the 80’s when they were working some frontend-loading deal.
I can’t even tell you how long its been since I’ve had a nasty rejection. Haven’t had the pyramid objection in five years. Haven’t had anyone storm out of a meeting for 15 years. (And that only happened once out of at least 10,000 meetings!)
So how about you? Are you facing serious rejection challenges – or are you making them up?
Don’t be so afraid to die that you forget to live.
