 How to Make “No” Your Friend!

Most people cringe at the word “No”. It’s the word you heard as a child that crushed your immediate wants. It’s the word you heard as a teen that made you feel angry and rebellious. It’s the word you hear as an adult that makes you feel disrespected as you feel you deserve more of an explanation that just a “No”! “No” is sharp, it’s final, and it’s bold… but it’s out there… so you have an option to either fear it, fight it, or friend it!

No matter who you are, what relationship you’re in, or what line of work you do… YOU are a salesperson; selling your ideas, your wants, needs, and dreams to others: your boss, employees, significant other, children, friends, etc. As a salesperson… if you cannot make “No” your friend, you will become frustrated, rude, bitter, and fizzle out of that job or relationship quickly. But in this case the job is your life… and fizzling out is not an option! So, what to do?

The first step is to UNDERSTAND the “No”. Once you hear “No” it may be your first reaction to think your are a failure or they’re an “idiot”, you feel dismissed and frustrated, you move on quickly to the next whatever, and the consequence become more “No’s”…. because you haven’t learned why the first few “No’s were said. It is imperative to gain an understand of the “No” you received (if possible). Be careful not to react to the “No”, but rather ask, “I understand you are saying no for now… can you help me to understand why this is not working for you; as it will help me to improve and be better for other _________? Yes, this is written in a business format and feel free to reword it to fit your situation. The goal is to understand their “No”, find the objection, see if there is a true glitch in whatever you are pitching, and if there is a way to modify to meet their need and yours. An important note: Modification should only be done if it remains respectful, dignified, and reasonable for YOU and the relationship!

The second step is to APPLY! “No” can provide valuable lessons if you are willing to remove your ego. What are they saying “No” to and why? Whatever their answer… are you willing to at least examine what you are offering. Just because it seems and sounds great to you; does not make it great, reasonable, and doable for everyone. The good news is… whatever you are offering is not going to be for everyone, that would be impossible! Can you be OK with that? If you are interested in adapting and evolving… then it makes sense to apply what you learned from the “No”, apply it, test it, and EVOLVE!

Lastly, REMAIN COURTEOUS! A “No” may mean several things: not right now, they didn’t quite understand you… confused people rarely say yes to things, it could mean they are bogged down and not ready to take on anything extra, they are having a bad day, or simply they are not interested because they are too used to doing things the same old way. Whatever the reason… YOU choosing to remain courteous will keep the bridges wide open for the future. When I first started in business, I naively thought what I had to offer was for everyone. I slowly realized that it wasn’t… and that’s ok. It was for the people who were ready! My job as the Founder and CEO was to make sure business continued, so when those people are ready the business still exist. Stay true to your mission, remain courteous, and keep EVOLVING… you never know when paths will cross again… and believe me, you’ll want to be on the right side of that reunion!
