Have you met anybody that completely ignores a no response and somehow interprets it as a yes or a maybe ? They are stubbornly annoyingly selective in their hearing. They apply for that job 10 times? Try that business idea 50 times? They have had a lot of knocks but still find a way to get up. I admire them and sometimes irritated by them and other times wonder about them. I have met some of these guys who have stories that make me smile. Sometimes the no is verbal other times it is in the attitude of those who have some power, other times it is in the way the system runs.
I can’t imagine how they must have felt after the first few negative responses, I know I don’t take rejection very well. I don’t mean they become desperate or rude but there is something in their attitude, it’s in the eye it’s in the shoulders , it is in their stride which says I heard that you said no but I will take that as a Yes. .
They take the pieces of brick thrown at them and add it to their building site. If you remove the book from them , they use the words engraved in their heart. They are defiant, they are determined, they are resilient, they are dreamers and most importantly they are believers.
There is one thing I have learnt from them: no is definitely not always the final answer.
To all you my friends and family out there who keep going, I say we see you .!
