I just received my first “no” of 2023 and I couldn’t be more excited!
As we enter Day 2 of 2023, I would like to offer a word of encouragement - persistence.
Persistence is a firm or obstinate continuance in a course of action in spite of difficulty or opposition. Origin of persistence: mid 16th century from French persistance, from the verb persister; influenced in spelling by Latin persistent- “continuing steadfastly.”

Scientists studying resilience have found that those who keep working towards overcoming their situation by maintaining constant focus and effort, are the ones who emerge most successfully from whatever it is they are dealing with…
The motivating factor is generally stronger than any sense of fear that arises when looking at the big picture, and momentum is created by belief in the power of repeated small steps.”
The "no’s" we receive are a step in the direction toward the bigger picture. Keep your momentum and let the "no’s" motivate you to continue in spite of adversity toward your goal.
