We've all been told "no" at some point and depending on what it was, I bet it was slightly devastating at that time.
When you have your heart set on a goal or on something and it just vanishes away with a two letter word it really stings and leaves you questioning a lot of things.
Did you give up when you heard that one word or did you persist, "truck on," as they say? I hope you kept going and didn't give up on your goal or dream.
Sometimes we don't realize the true meaning and blessing of the word "no." Don't get me wrong I'm a "yes" girl, I love to be told yes... but when everything comes simple and easy we loose the value of it, because it was just given to us, we didn't have to work nearly as hard to get it.
When you get told "no" embrace it, because it's a sign from above testing you to see how bad you want it, and if you're worthy enough to get it and have it. Don't get discouraged but rather think of it as a test. If you just give up, that means you truly didn't care and you honestly have no right to be upset.
Find that burning flam inside you and keep it lit until you reach and attain your goals having nothing or none stop you in between. You will see how much more rewarding and fruitful it is to have it when you attain what you want.
