It’s a new week and that means It’s time for some Rejection Therapy! This means exposing ourselves to situations, with a specific question, request or action in mind, that most likely will get us rejected! We do this to desensitize ourselves from the fear of getting turned down- imprinting the association in our brains that a NO will only make us stronger! But also, building self-esteem by designing these challenges so they align with your values believes and GOALS – going after the things you want in life! And this time the focus will be about cold calling your way towards your goals – reaching out to people that you admire or possesses knowledge you could benefit from!
We do rejection therapy challenges every other week, and every other week we do personal development work focused on building self-esteem with the help of the book The six pillars of self-esteem by Nathaniel Branden.
My objectives of the week is to call one person each day that can help me in getting clear on how I should outline my business idea for a competition I’m going to apply for. For you this means calling a person that in some way can help you move towards your goals!
Remember the only way to fail is to NOT ASK THE QUESTIONS! If I get rejected, I INCREASE my ability to handle rejection, and I increase my Self-esteem If I do what I’ve set out to do, no matter if I get rejected or not!
1# The request’s/question’s need to align with your goals, values or beliefs! if you go out and do something just to get rejected, but it interferes with your moral or what you believe in, it will decrease your self-esteem.
2# That means you’re not allowed to lie! Own the situation; rather tell the exact reason for why you’re doing what you’re doing, then try to manipulate your way to a yes.
Some tips along the way:
Plan what you are going to do and say – or at least have the overall gameplay outlined! Unclarity will be a reason to hesitate when you are about to do what you are going to do – that’s my own experience!
Don’t let time play with you psyche, the longer you wait with the approach, the worse it’s going to get. JUST DO IT!
Remember, that no matter how shitty you feel before you do it, the reward that awaits you on the other side, will greatly make up for that!
