The Affirmation Spot – Affirmation of the Day Tuesday September 18, 2007

“Those who need my services are on their way to using them. I am thankful for the opportunity to serve them.”

Good Tuesday morning to everyone.

Stop. Look around you right now. Everything you see around you is there because someone somewhere sold something. Sales people, and their close cousins entrepreneurs, deal with a unique amount of rejection in their jobs.

To deal with it, they have developed aphorisms to stay motivated in the face of this constant negativity. One of my favorites is, “Some will, some won’t, so what!” I have no idea who coined the phrase, but it is ubiquitious and seems to sum up the mind set that a successful sales person must have to survive.

Now I know there are many burgeoning conscious business people who read this blog. Most of you are working to better the world through your products, services, or ideas. And as you venture out into the world, you are going to face many of the closing doors that other sales and business people face. Rejection can be very personal, especially when you believe the world is in desperate need of what you have to offer.

Some will. Some won’t. So what.

You are good with the “some will” part of the equation. The people who recognize the value of what you have to offer are obviously smart, evolved individuals. :o)

You may even understand that “some won’t”. It is the “so what” part that you have a hard time swallowing. What you are doing has so much meaning to you and could have such a positive impact on the world that you want everyone to benefit from it.

It’s easy to get stuck on why some people – sometimes those who need it most – refuse to see the value in what you have to offer.

You can invest a lot of energy wondering why “some won’t”, but all you really need is the wisdom to say, “so what!” It’s hard to do when you really believe in what you are doing.

Stop. Look around you again. All those things that someone sold to someone else began with an idea – an idea just like yours. In most cases, many people said no before someone said yes. Eventually, though, the right person said yes and the rest is history.

When you are bringing value to the world -and you know you are – the world will eventually say a giant “YES” to you.

In the meantime, take a page from the old sales sages and remember, “Some will, some won’t, so what!

Have a peaceful and prosperous Tuesday!
