It’s time for week 8 of Rejection Therapy to build Self-esteem – exposing ourselves to situations, with a specific question or request 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 to they align with your values believes and GOAS – going after the things you want in life! So the Objectives are:
– 5 Rejection Therapy Challenges, one each day, Monday through Friday
1# The requests/questions need to align with your goals, values and beliefs, if you go out and do something just to get rejected, but it interferes with your moral code or what you believe in, it will decrease your self-esteem! (read the Six Pillars of Self-Esteem or watch my other videos on this topic)
2# This also means you’re not allowed to lie! Own the situation; rather tell the exact reason for why you’re doing what you’re doing, than try to manipulate your way to a yes. It’s cheating!
Some tips along the way:
- Plan what you are going to do and say; unclarity will make you more likely to hesitate and talk yourself out of it.
- Don’t let time play with you psyche, the longer you wait with the approach, the worse it’s going to get. At least in the beginning when you are starting out, eventually you want to reach a state where you can be present with the fear. But especially when starting out – 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! Some days will be great and some day will be pure crap. It’s very contextual, and how you look after yourself on a basic level will for sure affect your results; sleep deprived, blood sugar dip, clouded mind, etc. TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF!
