🌼You’ll Never Fear Rejection Again if You Adopt This Mindset
Follow the one percent rule
Get one percent of the 7 billion people on planet earth to love you and you’ll become wealthy, happy, and have a massive network.
Once you understand that it doesn’t take all that much to get what you want, you can begin to create an attitude that helps you get what you want by not trying to have everything.

Let me explain.
Why You Struggle to Get What You Want
Not every person is going like you, want to be your friend, want to date you, want to do business with you, etc. Logically, you understand that it’s impossible to get one hundred percent approval from the world.
But you still want it.
Maybe you don’t literally want everyone to want what you have to offer, but you want to avoid feeling rejected. How do I know this is true, not just for you, but for me also?
If we didn’t feel this way, we’d just go about our lives ruthlessly executing the things we want to do without worrying about which specific person is into it.
Our need to be liked, to be wanted, to be approved of, keeps us from this mentality of constantly swinging.
The one percent rule can help you start taking more swings.
The One Percent Rule in Practice
Think about the things you want in your life. Maybe you want to start a business or do something creative. Maybe you want to improve your social skills and make more friends, get dates, or find a partner that really suits you. Perhaps you have some mission, some cause, that you need a certain number of people to accomplish.
The one percent rule can help you get all of the above. Here’s the way to think about it. Regardless of your confidence level in whatever it is you’re trying to do, consider what it would take to get enough people to your cause to move the needle.
There are 7 billion people on planet earth. Let’s make it easy and say there are 3.5 billion adults. Let’s say you can get one percent of them to pay y attention to what you’re doing. That leaves you with 35 million people. Now let’s say only one percent of them really have much interest in what you’re doing, that still leaves you with 350,000 people.
Think you could find a solid partner if you went on 350,000 dates? Probably. Think you could start an amazing business with 350,000 customers? Truth is, you can start an amazing business with 3 customers depending on what the product is.
The point of the one percent rule isn’t that you’re going to literally interact with every human being on earth. That’s impossible. But it’s just there to show you that we live in a world full of abundance.
The Motto You Can Use to Find Great Opportunities

I’m working on a new product as we speak. I know the vast majority of the people who see the offer will not take me up on it. I know that most people who read my work will never financially contribute to my career. But that’s ok. That’s the game.
Putting yourself out there can be terrifying. I know. I know that this 1,000-word blog post isn’t just going to magically make you more confident. But I want to remind you what’s on the other side of perceived rejection. You get what you want.
You write 100 blog posts. 99 of them are duds but one goes viral and shifts the trajectory of your career. You talk to 100 different people. Your life could change by finding one person you really click with. Success in life is a lot like sales and marketing. You have to go through a lot of no’s to get to the yes’s.
As palpable as the fear of rejection is, deep down you know that it’s all in your head. Get out there. Get a handful of people to join your cause. That’s all you need.
