A personal trainer’s job is give me physical training for my money. However, I believe an hour of my time could also be valuable, if used correctly. Especially in the area of technology, entrepreneurship and blogging, I feel I have a lot expertise to offer. On day 24 of my rejection therapy, I ventured into 24 Hour Fitness to exchange 1 hour training session with a fitness trainer.
Instead of getting physical training, I receive a rejection training. Jordan is the type of person who really knows how to say ‘no’ to people. These are the types of things you don’t realize when it happens, but only catch them during post analysis.
Learning: A good ‘no’ should include 1: a reason/consequence 2. a path/alternative to a ‘yes’ 3. patience and respect. In the case of rejection, it’s really not what you say, but how you say it.
