It’s time for week 9 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 so they align with your values believes and GOAS – going after the things you want in life!
This week is a little bit special, because I’ve chosen to focus all my rejection therapy challenges in one life are: RELEATIONSHIPS – Girls, that is. I need to give this area more attention, and one of things I’ve learnt the last year is that if you want something, you give that one thing all your attention.
So what does that mean for you? Well, either you do as me and focus in the challenges on one area you need/want to develop, like social skills, or you just do five random challenges as the previous weeks!
– 5 Rejection Therapy Challenges throughout the week!
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!
