GET USED TO REJECTION
‘Your comfort zone is a cage,’ says Jason Comely, who calls himself a ‘rejection expert’. The solution? Rejection therapy – or intentionally chasing knockbacks so you no longer fear them. ‘Success at Rejection Therapy is accomplished when rejection feels like success, not like failure,’ says Comely. ‘The point is to hardwire your brain to take action – to “go for it” as the default.’ Start small and work your way up – just asking someone for a phone number, a discount or a bite of their croissant is enough to ‘pass’. Remember: if you get what you ask for, you’ve failed.
