If you’ve been receiving rejection letters and emails, please don’t be discouraged.
I know it can be hard to deal with, especially when you see other people around you scoring consecutive wins.
The rejection is your tax. The winners you see today have paid theirs, but you can’t tell by just looking at their smiles.
Stay in the fight and understand that you’re not alone.
Don’t isolate yourself and feel sorry for yourself. The devil will step in and whisper nonsense in your ear.
Dress up, leave your house and be around successful, happy people. Don’t underestimate this emotional strategy.
Even if you don’t want to talk, just hang out at business events and listen. Sometimes, the idea that activates your destiny lies on the tongue of someone else.
If you live in Lagos, you’re especially fortunate because there’s something going down every weekend.
If you don’t have money, there are many free events listed on eventbrite. I did this in my first year in Lagos.
Clean your soul of every drop of envy and befriend those whose results you admire. Learn from them.
Your day will come and when it does, people won’t understand why you’re laughing and crying at the same time.
Oya shake off the sadness. It haff do.
Go out and get seen.
Make money moves.
Create products and services.
Make sales calls.
Apply for everything in sight until they’re sick of you.
Get your head back in the game.
