Does your love life feel like a broken record that keeps skipping the second date?Or maybe it doesn’t even get that far—you enjoy a nice email exchange and a couple phone calls but always wind up riding solo on the Lonesometown Express.When battling rejection, how can you withstand the constant blows to your ego and still come out a champion? Keep some Perspective Remember, in this world where people must constantly fight against disease, wildfires, and droughts, your dating issues are not the biggest problem humanity has ever had to conquer.And haven’t you had some successes in your personal life that far outweigh any temporary setbacks you’re feeling in your love life?When love seems to be slamming the door in your face, it’s important to remember the windows you’ve opened for yourself.These can be personal goals met, adversities overcome at work, self-expression achieved through art, or the contribution made by helping others.
Think Like a Salesperson Have you ever had a job where you had to sell something expensive, such as a car or a set of diamond earrings?
When people are shopping for someone dear to them, they’re highly selective, and many people walk out of the shop without buying.
It doesn’t mean that your cars aren’t fast or your diamonds aren’t sparkly.
These people may just want a car with more seat belts or different hubcaps, or they may simply be willing to settle for an amethyst.
A good salesman knows that every sale is important, but he also knows how to size up a person who’s not buying, so he can get on with his day and make a real sale.
