Day 2172 - Success Principles and the word NO

When it comes to business, "no" doesn't have to be final.  

Something I've learned on this entrepreneurial journey I'm undertaking is that not everyone understands my vision.  

I get a lot of "nos".  

Some of them are actually "no", but others end up being "I didn't fully understand your brand but now that I've talked to you some more I understand the potential".  

I've managed to slip my way into a lot of doors.  Big doors.  Big doors full of potential and opportunity.  The kind of doors I only ever dreamed of entering. 

This week I knocked on another big door. 

But I got another "no".  

It was a "no" from a big wig.  A very big wig.  I was sad of course, but then I thought about it and said to myself "they just don't understand this well enough".  

I KNOW we'd make a great partnership.  I KNOW it will be successful.

They just don't know it yet.

So we need to prove it to them.  A "proof of concept" deal perhaps. Yes.  That's it.  

Who knows ... it could be a big ol' waste of time ... but it's worth a shot isn't it?

I'm not taking their "no" as a "no".  I'm taking it as a "I didn't fully understand the potential of your brand ..."

Because one thing I know for sure, every no is one step closer to a yes. 

There are "yes's" everywhere ... you've just got to find them.
