Tip: A surprising way to deal with networking rejection.


Best-selling author Mark Manson in his weekly newsletter, “Your Next Breakthrough”, said this recently: “One of the most beneficial traits in love and in life: be nearly impossible to offend.” Mark’s advice is “make a conscious choice to stop being upset or offended".

A good place to practice this is in networking situations. Rejection, or fear of rejection, is a real thing when it comes to networking. The following scenarios have happened to many of us:

  • You approach someone and they look at you suspiciously—why are you talking to me?
  • You are talking with someone and they aren’t focused on you, they are looking around the room for someone more important.
  • They make you feel like you’re not someone they have any interest in engaging in conversation.
  • The list goes on…
Go to that next networking event remembering what First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt said, “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
