We saw a speaker on TedX talk about how his life change because of a box of donuts. We were very intrigued and wanted to know more so we watched. The speaker was a bit hard to understand because he was from China and had come to America at the age of 16 to pursue his dream of becoming like Bill Gates, an entrepreneur. He didn't know what he was going to get into, but he knew he had a dream of breaking into a business that was going to bring him success.
To make a long story short, he applied to a franchise and they told him "NO". He was rejected and it literally crushed him. He was so crushed that he almost gave up on his dream and started looking for a job. But because of a strong and courageous wife, he gave himself more time and started to research how to conquer his fear. He googled just that and found a rejection cure site. This site offered him a unique method of challenging his rejection fears by taking a challenge of being rejected for fun. He vowed that he would put himself in a position to be rejected for 100 days straight each day.
This is where the donuts come in. Yes, he was rejected day in and day out for odd things that he asked for, but when he asked crispie cream donuts for five donuts in the shape of the Olympic symbol, he received a huge yes and great customer service! He found out that people are gracious while he thought that he would never experience that. He blogged about it and the video went viral.
He found that being rejected is the key to finding a special "YES"! Even Steven Spielberg was rejected, so was Michael Jordan, and so Was JK Rowling.
So just when you think that being rejected is the end of your dreams, it may be the inspiration you need to super charge them!
With that said, "Put a little MaxPower into your life!"
