"In every defeat is a lesson showing you how to win the victory next time." Robert Collier

You have been turned down. You have been told no. You have been informed your idea won't work; that your business plan doesn't cut it. It's not the right idea, not the right place, not the right fit. Better luck next time.

Ouch.

Regardless of how hard you try, sometimes you get a big, fat, yucky 'no' for an answer. It's not the answer you seek, certainly not the answer you want to hear. But it's the answer you receive once in a while.

No, it won't work.
No, you don't have it.
No, you can't cut it.
No, not now, not this time.
No, no, no, no, no.

"Drop the words if only and substitute instead the words, next time." Smiley Blanton

Now what? After the no, what's your next step, your next move? What happens next after no?

Do you head back to the drawing board to tweak or fine-tune your idea? Do you make adjustments, make it better? Do you figure out a better way and then give it another go, another stab? Or do you pack it in and call it quits?

Despite the sting of the setback, you need to keep your chin up and keep moving forward. No matter how many times things go wrong, there is always a next time, a next opportunity, a next chance to make things right. And that next time starts now. Not next week or next year, but right where you are right now.

You have to take the next step even though you may still be reeling. You have to take the next step despite your fears and reservations. You have to take that next step. And you have to take it now.

That next step will not be your last step, maybe not even the right step in the right direction. But it is the most important step you will ever take.

"Never look down to test the ground before taking your next step; only he who keeps his eye fixed on the far horizon will find the right road." Dag Hammarskjöld

Never allow defeat to have the final say. And never let 'no' to linger around. Take no in stride. Put it in your rearview mirror. Set your sights on something bigger, something better. And move on.

There is always a next time; a next opportunity to make something happen, a next chance to stake your claim. There is always a next place to make a mark, a next opening to make a move.

And that next time just might be the right time you have been hoping for, the chance you have been dreaming about. There's only one way to find out. You have to have the guts to take that next step.

Step away from the negatives.
Step away from the objections.
Step away from the rejections.
Step out. Step up. Step forward.

"It is the next step forward on the path to the sunrise, and the sun is rising over a new heaven and a new earth." Martha Carey Thomas

What's next in your life? What is the next thing you want to accomplish, the next stop you want to make? What's the next challenge, the next adventure, the next phase in your life? I want you to picture that next great thing in your mind. I want you to feel it in your heart. Paint it on your soul.

Got the picture? Now go get it.

Go get it with passion.
Go get it with purpose.
Go get it with all of the feeling and fervor you can muster.

The next time you encounter a no along the way (which you will), don't make a big fuss. Use the no as a starting point, a stepping stone; a springboard into the future. Forget about the last thing that happened and zero in on the next good thing, the next great thing, the next incredible thing in your life.

Make things better. Then make things right. GET better. Get going. And get on down the road. Take that next step. Then take the step beyond.

The next thing you know, you will be turning one no after another into YES. And you will start living the life you deserve.

Power Pointer: Don't take no for an answer.
