>I’m all for getting out of one’s comfort zone, but this rejection therapy thing is just bizarre.
Getting rejected by a different person every day is called working in sales. For me (and many others), it’s also called dating. And yes, each rejection I get in my professional and personal life only makes me stronger, but like someone in my office said a couple of months ago, “I’m tired of hearing ‘no’ all the time. Just once, I’d like to get a yes.”
Plus, I wish I would have thought of a silly self-help scheme like this to make a few bucks. Maybe I’ll write something called, “Ask For Forgiveness Not For Permission.” It will help people become more assertive, or possibly get arrested, but I suppose a disclaimer would cover all legal ramifications.
Again, breaking out of your comfort zone is a wonderful thing and it does help to face your fears. But playing a game to purposely see how much you can get rejected? I guess whatever works, but it seems a little masochistic if you ask me.
