What Does Rejection Mean to Me?

This is exactly what I was thinking about today at around 11:20AM while I was handing out my business cards for my art site on Fifth Avenue and 53rd Street in Manhattan - I have, while I stand there attempting to give out these cards to people as they pass me by in the 14 degree weather that we had today - the greatest opportunity in the entire world to both stand up to a great deal of the most difficult rejection that I could possibly imagine right alongside the greatest opportunities every moment to get beyond the rejection of one person and place my business card introducing my art on the Internet to another potential viewer - It is with great joy and anticipation that I place myself in the way of the rejection of so many people in order to make the connection with the next person who is open and willing to take my card and I do so with so much confidence and determination along with persistence that very often allows me to not only be rejected by some but to walk up to those very same people who have rejected what I have offered them - and while they are waiting for the light to change at the corner - offer the very same card and see them change their minds so many times and not only take the card but smile as well when they take it and discover what it is that I had been offering them that they rejected just a few moments ago - my next big project that I am focusing on can be read about here: The Bottom Line enjoy the adventure!!!! :-) P.S. I would love to hear from any of the people who instead of rejecting my offer either the first of even the second attempt - actually took my business card and who have enjoyed viewing my art - it certainly would make the rejection even more meaningless altogether - . 12-17-2012BABCDEFGHIJ by Walter Paul Bebirian
