If you’ve been following The Bad Blogger for any length of time, or taking an active part in the Internet Marketing community, you’ve probably heard of Michael Fortin. He’s considered to be one of the best copywriters around, who’s been known to increase conversion rates and ROI’s dramatically. What you might not know about him is, he started out as a very shy door-to-door salesman who was terrified of rejection. In fact, the reason why he got into sales is he wanted to…
that Fear !
Years passed, he knocked a whole lot of doors, was rejected a whole lot of times, and now he can proudly say his fear of rejection is gone. Right now he’s a great salesman, businessman and entrepreneur, who helps hundreds of people all over the world to…
in Their Lives and
Well, something interesting happened this morning. A few hours ago, I was interviewing a young man for a sales position in one of my businesses, and as I was talking to him, I realized people who are not entrepreneurial at heart, those who want a nine-to-five and a check at the end of each month, seem to be…
More Afraid of
On the other hand, business people are the exact opposite. They don’t mind getting rejected, but they can’t stand failure. It’s not in their vocabulary. What I want you to realize is whether you want it or not, rejection and failure are everywhere around you. If you haven’t experienced them already…
If you think about it for a moment, you’ll realize you can get rejected as you look for a job or, if you sell physical products door-to-door, like Michael Fortin did. You can feel rejected when you spend hundreds of hours trying to sell something online, but people just…
Don’t Want to
Buy it !
You can even feel rejected when you ask a girl out and she says no. Rejection is everywhere. The thing about rejection, though, is it’s usually short term and temporary in how it affects your life. I mean, even if you knock one hundred doors and get rejected one hundred times, you can still knock another one, and if you do, as the law of averages attests…
Going to Say Yes to You
Sooner or Later !
In other words, as long as you don’t give up, every rejection will bring you closer to finally getting accepted. On the other hand, the effects of failure seem to be more devastating and lasting. The changes it creates can be deep and damaging. If you feel you’ve failed in life, it might be difficult for you to get up and…
Together Again !
But again, it’s crucial for you to understand that rejection and failure are everywhere, and they’re just part of your life, as breathing and eating is. They happen, and you can’t hide from them. The great thing is you will get through both of them, if that’s what you want. No matter how many times you’ve gotten rejected or failed…
You Can Get Up and
Keep Going !
Sure, at first you’ll feel depressed and discouraged, but that will pass relatively soon. If you put your mind to it, you will alter your life, and it will be improved because of the failure or rejection you had to go through. I like to think of everything in life as a learning process. When you fail or get rejected, you need to look at what you can improve, make the necessary plans to change, regroup and keep going. That’s…
How You Create
Greatness in Life !
None of the successful people you read about or see in movies have been born successful. They’ve had to face failure and rejection long before they became who they are now, and they still face those things all the time. You can take every experience, no matter how difficult and learn from it. You can look at what you have accomplished each day right before you go to sleep, draw conclusions and get up rejuvenated and motivated the next day. You can achieve anything you desire, if…
Give Up !
Giving up and throwing in the towel is the ultimate failure. It happens when you decide you’re going to stop trying and move on to something else. I don’t want you to ever do that. Why? Because it doesn’t work. You see, if something is worth your while, it’s going to bring rejection and failure before you see success. If you’ve spent a lot of time learning and working on something, there’s no point in giving up and starting something new from scratch. If you do, the only thing you’ll accomplish is start over. It might be refreshing, but…
Is a Terrible
Waste of Time !
You might be tempted to start something new, when you begin seeing that you’re failing at what you’re currently doing, but I can tell you from personal experience if you ever get serious with that something new, you’ll fail at it, too, initially. This is not because you can’t do anything right, but because that’s…
One of the
Laws of Success !
Success will come, but first you’ll experience hardships, rejection and failure. That’s just how it is. So, do not give up and get distracted just because something gets hard. Instead, keep at it. Keep trying, and you’ll soon see great things happening. How do I know? If you’ve read this book “The Guy Behind the Bad Blogger Manual” you probably already know I’ve failed miserably and was rejected by dozens of people before…
I Succeeded At
What I Do !
I’ve been where you are now and I know you will succeed eventually, if you follow a solid plan. It will be hard. It will take time and a great deal of effort, but you will succeed, no matter what it is you’re trying to accomplish.
Never Say Die,
