Build your confidence with-

The Asking Challenge!


Each time we face our fear, we gain strength, courage, and confidence in the doing.

 -Theodore Roose

 


 

Asking for a discount is a great way to get comfortable with asking for what you want while accepting rejection. In fact, you can start seeking rejection. Rejection can be your goal!

This challenge really helps you build confidence and get over feelings of low self-esteem.

Start off small, next time you buy a coffee ask for a small discount or even try to get a free coffee.

The more uncomfortable the better this means you are pushing your comfort zone and what’s the worst that can happen? You get rejected, but that’s your goal so it’s a win-win.

With realization of one’s own potential and self-confidence in one’s ability, one can build a better world.

– Dalai Lama

Most likely you will find that the person being asked wants to give you a discount as its natural to want to help others. In fact, you will find that most people you ask will feel more uncomfortable than you because most people want to please.

Set a goal of one a day and see how you get on

Even when it feels super uncomfortable to ask, ask!

It could be a raise from your boss, a business deal or a date with that person you have your eye on.

Good luck, and please let me know how you get on.
