I just lost a business deal. Right before that, I got a deal. That’s a batting average of .500 for the day. Those are Cooperstown numbers, right there.

Here’s the thing: by the end of the day, I’ll probably be batting close to .050. Those are unemployed numbers. 

At my old sales job, my batting average was about .0005 and I still made a decent living. 

What’s my point? It’s all relative and rejection is part of the job. It’s part of the struggle. It’s why people leave gigs that pay them $500,000 a year to start their own business. They want the challenge. They live for the struggle.

“Obstacles are necessary for success because in selling, as in all careers of importance, victory comes only after many struggles and countless defeats.” – Og Mandino

It’s all about how you react. I’ve always had trouble with riding the waves. It’s important to stay Stoic. Positivity is key.

A guy I used to work with said “Don’t let the highs get you too high. Don’t let the lows get you too low.” It’s great advice (thanks, Marc).

Here’s to that.
