Dealing with rejections

Most people suffer mentally because either they have not been rejected before or not prepared or trained to deal with rejections. In both cases, the impact is negative. It is like any skill.

To be a giver

You cannot pour from an empty cup. Deeply satisfying your needs naturally enables you to extend your hand to others. By doing so, your giving is genuine not conditional. It is out of a true will not a tit for tat.

Most people think that entrepreneurship is about starting, organizing, and managing any enterprise and selling anything to people.

The leader’s mind.

The leader’s mind may be defined in the spirit of upholding unquestionable beliefs about the world and translating those beliefs into action.
