Rejection sucks.
I sometimes find it hard to say no.
“Can I pitch my startup to you?”
“Can I introduce you to X?”
“Can I interview you for my podcast?”
“Can you take a job thats 3 hours away and would mean you would miss your child waking up and going to bed?”
Ok, I shared that last one intentionally, because we all experience opportunity cost. By saying no to something, it provides us with choices on what we can say yes to. Whereas if we accept that job or agree to take the dog for a walk, we have committed to how we will spend our time.
In itself, saying yes is not a bad thing, if it’s consciously what you want. But try and reframe your rejection or saying no as an opportunity to open up your options to what you may say yes too!
