Episode 62: Why “No” is the Secret to Getting “Yes” | An Interview with Andrea Waltz

Listen On

Success is a rare thing. Many people settle for less than the best and never leave their comfort zones because they are afraid of rejection. Overcome your self-doubt and your fear of failure with Hal Elrod’s guest, the best-selling author, and entrepreneur: Andrea Waltz.

Beginning at age eight with an impassioned plea to George Lucas, Andrea has never been one to shy away from the word no. Today with over 18,000 followers on Twitter and over 300,000 copies of her book Go for No: Yes is the Destination, No is How You Get There sold, she has created a new model where failure is the path to success.

No stranger to failure, Andrea shares her story of how her biggest success was born from her failure (10:50). Learning from her past mistakes and achievements, Andrea shares her three biggest strategies for failing your way to success (17:50):

  1. Have measurable and meaningful goals
  2. Just start!
  3. Don’t let critiques get to you

Ask yourself what you really want and decide what sacrifices you are willing to make to get there. Try setting a goal for how many no’s you want to receive within a month. When you stop avoiding “no”, amazing things can happen.
