How To Conquer the Fear of Rejection


Have you ever been afraid to talk to people about your business? Are you worried about what people will say?

Today I am going to talk about the “fear of rejection”– specifically how to conquer the fear of rejection in network marketing–listen to this brief video message, then read below it for a little extra encouragement==>

NEVER be afraid to share the love of your business with EVERYONE you know–you never know what people will do, or who they might lead you to! Don’t forget the story I share in my best-selling book “Rock Your Network Marketing Business” of someone that I didn’t call because I was too afraid (the one who got away)…

My mom and I used to work for a woman named Stacey. Stacey and her husband own several successful businesses in Chicago. We both thought of her several times and never called her. The chances are, if you think someone is great, someone else does too. Eventually someone will call them, and in this case, they did! Rose out of Chicago beat us to it! She used a referral-based approach, complimenting Stacey, building on her credibility saying something simple like:“Stacey. I know you’ve built several successful businesses in Chicago, and I know you’re well networked in the Chicagoland area. I respect you. I am building a business in Chicago too. I was wondering if I could treat you to coffee, share with you what I’m doing, and pick your brain on ideas of how to grow this. I’d also like to see if you know people who you think may be interested.” *(This is great language you can use when reaching out to your prospects on your “chicken list”!)

Stacey met Rose for coffee, came with a list of hundreds of names she was ready to give Rose as referrals, and when she heard the opportunity she decided to come to a meeting to hear more for herself. I happened to be hosting the meeting that night, and in walked Stacey! My stomach hit the floor! She joined us! Stacey ended up being the top recruiter in the company that year! She earned her company car, and promoted to the very top leadership position in our pay plan!

Shoulda woulda coulda? Of course I’m thrilled for Stacey and Rose, but how many know that you only have to learn that type of lesson once? Now if someone comes to mind, I follow that little tug in my heart. I have a professional sense of urgency. I call them immediately, and I think: “which is greater? The risk or the reward?” The worst thing they will say is no! You won’t die (I have yet to die doing this business!) The best thing they will say is “yes”! And they change your life, their life, and countless of lives too!

Conquer your fears. Persevere. Take a chance–it just may change your life!
