Welcome to our monthly newsletter covering the “rules of success” for SFI affiliates. Each month, we cover one rule.
About SFI Rules Of Success:
Since 1998, more than 17 million people worldwide have become SFI affiliates. During this time, SFI and its affiliates have invested millions of dollars and millions of hours in trial and error. What has emerged is a very clear picture of what does and what does not lead to success. We have distilled for you all of this into the SFI Rules Of Success. If you want to SUCCEED in SFI, you must follow these rules. If you want to risk FAILURE, ignore them.
RULE #19:
Some will, some won’t. So what?! Someone’s waiting! Next!
Because most people aren’t “entrepreneurial,” rejection is natural and normal in our type of business. For every 20 people you present SFI to, expect 19 “no’s” for every “yes.” You may do better than that, but expect 19 rejections. This way, the rejections won’t bother you. Also, realize that they’re not rejecting YOU–they’re simply rejecting an idea. Just keep moving ahead.
“Some will, some won’t. So what?! Someone’s waiting! Next!”
Memorize this and say it to yourself when rejection happens. And remember that you’re now one step closer to the next “yes.”
Be persistent, ignore the rejections, and you’ll get more than enough “yes’s” to build a successful business.
“You can experience rejection for free or you can do it for money. Nobody likes rejection but it is a fact of life in just about every thing you do. In business, deal with it or stay poor.”
–Jack M. Zufelt
“Defeat is simply a signal to press onward.”
—Helen Keller
“Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit.”
–Napoleon Hill
