Have you ever been told, “your application has been denied?” Has rejection made you want to give up? Do you want more out of your life?
Seldom when we are told no do we step back, assess the situation and turn it to a positive experience. We are not trained and we are not taught to grow from no. Instead we passively accept this negative response and are kept from achieving our dreams and living our lives at the next level. As humans, when someone tells us, no, we often become our worst enemy. Our reaction is to shut down, rebel, pout, play the “that’s not fair” card, or some other self-defeating action. All of us have been told no in the past and more than likely will hear it again. This straight from the heart book will help you identify the positive in what seems to be a negative situation. You will see, through the experiences of real people, how to make N-O mean Next Opportunity.
How to Grow from No is a compelling story of a young man who was denied admission to college and told he was not college material due to his low class rank and poor standardized test scores. Five years later, he earned his bachelor’s degree and first professional job offer, from the same university that denied him admission. He subsequently earned his master and doctorate degrees. How to Grow from No is targeted for students and people with challenging circumstances in business, education, sports, and life. They have now found a renewed awareness and motivation to further pursue their passions and fulfill their hopes and dreams.
