How Rejection Made Me a Better Person; Rejection is okay

How Rejection Made Me a Better Person; Rejection is okay

There once came a time when I was scared of failing and getting rejected. I had been rejected. so many times in my life that I just had that feeling nothing could get better. I am sure you can relate. I had to change my mind and realize that everything is fine, and that was so hard to do. But when you do change your mind you can achieve just about anything. For real.

I want you to know, Rejection is OKAY, though. Not everyone is going to like you, not everyone is going to buy from you. Some people might not be happy with your service or product. That is okay. I am giving you permission to understand this is okay. It doesn’t mean they don’t value you, or your work, but rather that they don’t need it right now. It might mean they have their own problems, whatever it might be.


Furthermore, It is okay to say no and accept no as an answer in life and business. I have turned away customers for numerous ideas, but I did it knowing that I could save my own sanity and time.

When someone rejects you, either personally or professionally, take some time to reflect. Was it because of an internal battle you had with yourself, or were they just not ready? A lot of times it is because of our own insecurities and problems. We doubt ourselves. People can hear it in our voices and see it in our faces. No matter what, keep doors open and look forward. Sometimes things just don’t happen because there isn’t a need for it at that moment.

Once I realized my worth and who I really was, I realized I didn’t care about rejection. Why? Because I knew I was worthy and knew that I could change it around. What other ways can you get rejected? If you send out a proposal after they already agreed that they wanted the job, but now changed their mind. That is hard. However, it is okay. This type of rejection hurts, but it just means you need to get better with closing your sales. It means you need to communicate better with them.

In order to grow in life and business we must accept rejection and turn it into a positive thing. We often will find ourselves in a rut and dealing with self esteem whenever we get rejected. Don’t do it, you will be just fine. —> Join me over in my private little clubhouse for FREE RIGHT NOW, before we no longer accept new members!!

We can all learn something from our competitors

A long time ago someone who is very close to me and smart, told me to not look at competition the same way. I thought what does that mean? After much time of being a business owner I have realized that this is now more true than ever. There is NO such thing as a competitor… Hear me out.

Each “competitor” is different. We all have something different and unique. We all have something more personal for each business. If my competitions offer the SAME EXACT THING, they might not get the same price, experience, or professionalism as myself. It is important to be aware of your competitors, but to not feel threaten.

 

Whenever I travel, I can see different food options, I have to decide which one I want. Do I go with Burger King or Wendys? They both have burgers but each have different branding and tastes. So which one am I in the mood for? I have to choose between this, but I am not limited to either. I can choose one now and one later, but I still go to both and do not close out competitors.

What if I told you that I work with other designers when they have a workflow overload? We need to rely on one another and help each other out. That being said those people I do do design overflow for, I have learned so much from and gained so much insight from it.

The point is that we can help each other and motivate from one another. We can learn something from each other and help cultivate each other. So take it with a grain of salt and understand that your competitor isn’t truly a competitor.

Business Motivation: How Can We Motivate Others

I am sick of hearing and seeing people put others down. Everyone always wants to be right but does it really matter? Didn’t your parents tell you, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, then don’t say anything at all?” We are human, and we all have feelings. We all want to help and feel good about ourselves. I want you to compliment someone every day, and realize how awesome you feel.

I have managed to change my mindset on most days. There are some days when I have bad days and am in a bad mood. I am human, guys. But, even then, I try to be nice and make someone’s day better. You literally don’t know what someone is going through, so be kind to one another.

When I first started going through my transition in life (a divorce), I began to realize a lot of things including mindset. I’ve always had a positive go-get-‘em attitude, and I felt like I lost it for so long. I felt like I couldn’t be the person that I needed to be to achieve success. I am in charge of myself, and that’s the easy thing to say. I realized that I wasn’t happy; I couldn’t even allow others to feel good. I realized when people started to compliment me, I felt good and wanted to give back to them. See how that works?


Life happens, period. We let kids, spouses, family, friends, work, life, or whatever to get in the way. If you want to be successful, you have to be willing to grow, overcome, and change. This growth is where the mindset comes in. You have to take challenges and risks every day. You have to change “I have to” to “I get to.” For example, I used to say, “I have to get up this morning and do all this crap, and I don’t want to.” I then started to say, “I get to wake up this morning and help my clients, take care of my son, and be an independent woman.” Which one do you think worked better for me? By realizing I have a great morning to start with, it helped me start the day right.

Friends and family around me would uplift me by saying certain things and helping me change my mind. Your mind can be your worst enemy. Whenever you get those negative feelings or thoughts, block them out. But honestly, we all need to motivate and compliment one another more. It doesn’t matter who but let’s do it more. If we can give one compliment or saying a day to someone, we would live in a better world. Think about how much better the world could be.

Open up to someone, and realize that they might be able to help you or even listen to you. We all have a story, we are all human, and just want to live and feel good.

P.S. If you receive a compliment, say thank you and give a compliment to the next person.

How To Stay Motivated When You Work From Home

I have been working for myself officially now for almost two years. During that time, I have realized that I needed to have a ton of control in my life to be successful. People tell me all the dang time, “it must be nice to work from home” or, “I wish I could work from home” or even, “I couldn’t work from home.”

I like to think that I have always been well-disciplined and can get items done that need to be done. Being an entrepreneur has its perks. Even with kids running around, cooking dinner, and doing everything in between, I am still able to get motivated and focused.


  1. SHARE GOALS AND PLANS WITH FRIENDS: I know there will be times when we all want to slack off. There are days where I go to the spa instead of working, but it is because I know that I can pick up when I get back. I am part of a mastermind, and also have a sales coach; both of these seem to help me stay accountable. Furthermore, my parents are always by my side when it comes to running my business. I keep them informed and allow them to know my business goals and plans.
  2. THINK BIG PICTURE: Your mind is going to wander, so get that straight. From writing to social media to photo editing to networking, your list will go on forever. You will want to tackle bits daily, but you need to know that you are in charge. Focusing on the end game is much more motivating than seeing each task as an individual chore. Find a way to see the big picture and the end game that you want, and what the steps are that you need to make to get there. Too often I find myself seeing the end of the results for my business but unsure how to get there, so I make a plan. I draw a huge plan and write it out on my whiteboard + make sure to have it visualized in front of my desk daily. This process helps me to stay focused and reach that goal.
  3. CELEBRATE LITTLE MILESTONES: You cannot get to the end game or the big picture unless you celebrate every little milestone and learn from the past. I will tell you that I had to do both; it is just the nature of the game and being an entrepreneur. I have learned that EVERY single small milestone matters. Sending out that email, knocking off the emails, whatever it is, it matters.

The truth is working from home is great; I don’t mind it at all. I am very well-disciplined and can manage my time and see the big picture of where I see myself, and my business. Tell me, what do you need help with working from home?
