Fear of Rejection is the biggest reason for quitting

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Commitment

Did you know that men are rejected earlier in life than women? It starts at a very young age by getting  rejected by girls in school. Though rejection is a common feeling for everyone, in sales it is the biggest reason for quitting. We have to mentally prepare ourselves, thinking that each time we get a no we are that much closer to a yes! We must realize that all people are equal and that the image we have of ourselves is just a mental one. We created it! We didn't loose it all at once, so we might half to invest ourselves. By going out and purchasing some image clothing or hang out with a better group of people. Either way, once we build our image up our self confidence will grow right along with it. Just think how your image will change when people acknowledge you, congratulate you, and show their appreciation for you!

rejection sucks. I've had my share in this industry but for some reason i'm still here after 23 years. Not a testament to me but to my God who has helped me persevere THRU the rejections.
