when you felt like you already did everything you could to convince an investor
to accept your proposal, but you still ended with rejection. You might even
lose the courage to continue looking for other potential investors. The truth
is that even when a door has closed, you have to be grateful. You still have
other reasons to be thankful for.
might not be suitable for you
If the investor
isn’t sure about your proposal, you would rather see that person say no and let
go of your partnership. You will end up with more problems along the way if
there’s already uncertainty at the beginning. It’s also a good thing because
there’s a chance that you will find someone who will understand your vision and
will work well with you.
from the process
investor told you that your idea wasn’t good enough, it doesn’t mean you don’t
have a chance to be a successful
entrepreneur. It means that you have to polish your ideas and keep on doing
a better job. You might find someone who will see the potential in what you’re
doing. You can learn from the advice of the investor who said no so that the
next person in life would find it hard to decline your proposal.
Your business idea will probably not succeed
have a lot of experiences on the bag. Some of them were even behind the success
of a few startups. They know right from the start if a business has a
potential to succeed. If the investor said no to what you proposed, it’s a sign
that your current idea is terrible. You need to do major changes, or the
business won’t be viable. You will find it difficult to sell your ideas to
other people. You will end up wasting your time and effort. You will also lose
the trust of anyone who decides to invest in you.
will motivate you
It’s a good
thing that you experienced failure at this stage. It means that you will remain
grounded. Every time you accomplish something significant, you will recall the
time when someone told you that you were not good enough. It will help you to
keep pushing. If you only have a straight
path to success, you won’t have any idea about what failure means. Nothing
will push you to do a better. When that unfortunate time comes and you’re at
the peak of success, it might be difficult for you to recover. The failure will
be too devastating for you.
Be grateful for
the opportunity given to you and use it to your advantage. Never badmouth these
investors. You will still see them again in the future. They will also be in
touch with other investors. You don’t want anyone to not trust you anymore
because of your attitude towards rejection.
