Dear Entrepreneur,

We can’t control what happens to us, but we can control the way we react to them. What you’re about to read isn’t easy, but when you experience rejection, use it to fuel your motivation. I know there will be more than a few moments when you’re just not feeling it at all. But, find the inspiration and motivation in the rejection, to keep going even when it feels like nothing is going right at all.

I want you to shift the way you view rejection. Use every rejection as your motivation to keep doing the work that you do even when nobody is cheering for you. Use every rejection to become a better version of yourself and get more determined to accomplish your goal. Rejection doesn’t have to be the end of your story. Ending your story is a choice that you alone can make. You can choose to continue trying until you change your life, or you can choose to give up and accept defeat.

My advice is: never choose anything that takes away your willpower. I view rejection as a lesson, and then I get very tactical about what I’ll do next. This is your life, and you only get to live it once, so you have to do all it takes to live it right because there isn’t a second chance to live it again. So, dear entrepreneur, make each experience and decision count.

With love,
