I came across a book that had a helpful perspective on creating and advancing one’s life mission or company vision. Reinventing Yourself by Steve Chandler has many great tidbits for one to consider. One that I found helpful was where one can find a “yes.”
Chandler suggests that “yes” (the sale, the affirmation, the solution that works, etc…) is always found within the “no” (the rejection, the call that wasn’t returned, the book proposal that was rejected, the leader that didn’t pan out, etc…). The reason many people are good at getting yeses is because they aren’t afraid to put themselves out there and hear the “nos,” as well.
So, let’s be courageous. Believe in the thing you’re creating because the yes will be found within the cloud of no.
