How to Handle Rejection From Girls
I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed. - Michael Jordan
It is common knowledge that pick-ups are a numbers game. The first girl says NO, the second says YES.
What is most important in the game is bouncing back. A rejection can really hurt. The ego, depending on how fragile it is, can become damaged.
The good news is that you can bounce back — it may take minutes, hours, even days or months.
Even the best pick-up artist is not always on top of his game. Using his best field proven lines and tactics sometimes does not work for the master pick-up artist. The difference between a regular pick-up artist and the master is that the master always bounces back.
When a basketball player goes to take a shot he feels that it will go in (or at least he tries to get it in). Sometimes he misses. The great players shut out the misses and concentrate on scoring. How can you score when you doubt yourself and your abilities?
Injury is common in the game. You are going to get hurt. All pick-up artists know this. Risk, pain, and injury are part of the game.
Can you imagine how many times Michael Jordan was knocked to the hardwood floor, or elbowed in the face? How many times has he in addition to missing the lay-up come down hard in the paint?
He and other great players just get up and limp down to the other end of the court, waiting to get a chance to try again. The greats know that when they go on court that they might get hurt, but they still play hard. The greats play to win.
I went to a club recently and the first 2 girls who I asked to dance said NO.
The third girl who I asked said YES... and we danced together all night. What if I had stopped after the first 2 NO's and gone home?
I would have missed out on the YES.
