I've applied to countless jobs that never got back to me.

I've pitched to investors that never responded. 

I've applied to hashtag#MBA schools that never shared any feedback post a ding. 

I am someone who has gotten way more "silences" than "hell yes" when I applied. 

But I have had my fair bit of success too. 

If you are stuck trying and getting rejected, know that:

In 2020, I got my critical yes from Rajat Gupta (former global CEO Of McKinsey & Company) for teaching management consulting at our GGI. 

This came after multiple NOs. 

Post that, many more global hashtag#CEOs gracefully agreed to teach business to our students. 

Today, I often find emails from interested and kind investors in my inbox. 

You don't need 100 yes to crack your hashtag#career code.

All you have to sit tight for that is that one magical yes. 

Until then, you don't give up. 

You keep your fight on ✊
