Rejections is part of everyday life
Rejections occur in any sales call. Just remember this. It is not the end of the world. In this article, we offer suggestions on how to deal with the different types of rejections.
Before we get into this, let’s get some reality checks.
Remember the job applications, asking someone out, the proposal to your boss and time when you wanted that Xbox from your parents. You would think by now, rejection is just part of everyone’s life.
Have you heard of the term, “thick skin”? Some people just do not feel insulted or upset by what others say or do.
Technically, sales reps face more rejections than any other jobs. However, you are seeing this as a job.
If you think about it, there is no difference between selling yourself and selling your offers. Sales skill is a life skill. They are the same thing. By simple logic, we are all sales reps whether you like it or not.
Therefore, learning how to deal with rejections is just part of life and it is relevant to all of us, not just the people who want to sell or doing it as a job.
