Have you ever tried to reach out to someone and got nothing back but radio silence? I certainly have. Many, many, times in fact.
Whether it’s an email, phone call, old-fashioned letter (remember those?) or text message — there are more ways than ever to reach out, and to be ignored.
If you want to know what being blown off really says about you, watch this.
An important note. As I expressed in the video, sometimes being ignored is personal.
It may be the length, content or energy of your request. Sometimes it’s the timing of your communication or a host of other things that, to a certain degree, are within your control.
I’m a huge advocate for taking full responsibility for the results that you create (or fail to create) in business and life. That includes being confident and self-aware enough to ask yourself, “What could I have done differently in that situation to create a better outcome?”
But that, my friend, is another topic for another video on another day. Today, I intentionally chose to focus on the practice of not taking things personally.
Yes, it’s a more spiritual framework. But it’s one that trains you to be both resilient and compassionate — two vital keys for winning in business and life.
Now, I’d love to hear from you.
First up, let me know if you’re up for the 48 hour challenge to not take anything personally.
Do it as an experiment and investigate your results. I’ll bet you discover something that’ll serve you long-term.
Next, tell me one concrete example of where you took something personally — only to later find out that the crazy drama you made up in your head was totally not true.
Leave your response in the comments below.
As always, thank you so very much for watching, diving into the conversation, and continuing to spread the word to your family and friends.
You make my world!
