You can have the relationship you want – but so much faster – because now you have me to help you every step of the way.
You can’t control whether they will like you or be annoyed by you. By adopting this mindset, I found it took a lot of pressure off of me.
They all have different values, interests, hobbies and personalities. Here’s a great video by Mark Manson that explains this idea well in terms of dating: Rejection is not a reflection of your own worth as a person.
Somewhere out there, there are people who are similar to you. In fact, once you get a great “inner circle” of friends who accept you for who you are, then rejection becomes almost meaningless.
To put yourself in a situation where rejection is likely, but to your surprise your request is granted, is not a successful outcome. Many of the most famous authors got rejected countless times before they were finally published, and their books went on to become bestsellers. The majority of people out there you won’t be able to have any sort of deep relationship with because of incompatibility. When someone rejects you, they are saving you both from wasting time.
There are over 6 billion people on the planet right now. What I used to see as rejection I now realize is usually only a lack of chemistry.
Or (if you’re a salesperson) making a sale from every phone call you make.
