Motivational Snack: No Simply Stands for ‘Next Option’

Quote- Ciara

No matter who you are, you’re going to be told, “No”,  at some point in your life. It’s just inevitable. But what you can control is how you react to it. When someone tells you no, it doesn’t give you permission to give up. Your life isn’t over and your dreams aren’t destroyed.

 

The word “No” simply stands for ‘Next Option’

 

So when you find out that you didn’t get the job you really wanted, it doesn’t mean that you’re unqualified and should settle for any job you can get; it means that you have to look for that next option. If you work in sales, you have constant run-ins with the word, “no”, but again, it doesn’t mean that your company is horrible and should go out of business. It simply means that you have to go back out and look for that next option.

 

Every time I’ve been told no, I’ve told myself, “Okay, next option”.  Being told “no” will never be a setback, it’s only a setup for bigger and better opportunities. Once you embrace this, your dreams and goals will never again be deflated by a “no”.

 

“When someone tells me “no” it doesn’t mean I can’t do it, it simply means I can’t do it.” – Karen E. Quinones Miller
