Never Take No For Answer


Foundational Beliefs #9 Never Take No For Answer

It may sound negative or contrary but I have always refused to take no for an answer. I learned early on not to listen to the naysayers and those who said I could not do something. Telling me no or I could not do something only served to strengthen my resolve. I would not be writing this blog if listened to the priest who gave me an F in ninth grade English (some may argue he was right). I could cite numerous other examples. If someone tells you no or tells you can’t do something, go back re-examine what you are doing, reframe your arguments and come back and try again.
