In November 2017, I met with one of my coach to to decide on our next line of action. Prior to our meeting, I have been given a major jab above the belt which landed me safely on the floor, gasping for breath in the ring of life.
The uncertainties of the coming days appearing to be casted in a stone was a rude shock I had not seen coming.
We both designed a strategy that can ameliorate the consequences of the rude shock. As we discussed the nitty gritty of the plan, I knew right on the spot that I was in for a tough, rough time. However I have a pressure management system that helps me to cope in such scenarios.
So the plan was to setup my own popcorn business, sometimes this thing sounds simple but in those processes are the bits of very consequential lessons that makes for growth in life. The first assignment was to go get a space.
After work on a particular Monday, after praying and declaring God's word concerning favor, I stepped out. I moved from store to store trying to convince the owner to allow me to use a small portion of their space for a price. I moved to about 10stores that day, and all I got was "NO" "NO" "NO" "NO" "NO" "NO" "NO" "NO" "NO" "NO". It was a devastating experience.
But the more "No" I got, the more I consciously had to encourage myself to try another option that might just work.
Eventually after about 15attempts, I got a "YES" that works.
Here is the point in this post. This week you won't necessarily be immune from disappointment, heartbreak, setbacks, rejection and dejection.
I want you to know that you are not alone, I get disappointed, experience heartbreaks, suffer some losses and rejection too. But then all these are a setup for a fantastic comeback.
So dear friend, it doesn't matter how tough it seems right now, "it has surely come, to pass." Keep winning! Stay positive! You are full of AWESOMENESS.
I have a big announcement coming soon. Watch this space I am Biyi Agboola a BLESSING to my GENERATION, and an ASSET to NATIONS.
