Getting "Yes" for an Answer
Nov. 5, 2011
Entrepreneur-writer James Altucher says that the #1 habit for success is assertiveness. He offer some good examples from his own life.
The people I know who have been successful economically have had this habit. They have made it routine. They ask for more. They keep asking.
They act as though they deserve more. So, they get more. They keep asking even though they get "no" for an answer.
Most people do not have the stomach for this. "No" means no. They go on to something else. Not the successful person.
He says to apply this in the equivalent of mass mailings. If you get "no" from one person, and it's really "no," go on to another person. He used a dating service this way. He went through the list until he got to "yes." Then he asked her to marry him. He got "yes" again.
The successful person keeps asking. He makes a pest of himself. It does not bother him. He has a routine to follow: ask until you get "yes."
This means you should focus on what you really want. Then pursue "yes."
