Day 11: Merchanting irl

Fabis

89 views

For Day 11 of my 100 day rejection therapy, I tried to sell my headphones. I have a pretty good pair of Sennheiser headphones, that I bought for about 22 Ls (44 USD) and so I thought I'm gonna try to sell 'em. If the person would agree to buy them, then I'd try to sell them for 30 Ls at first and then maybe go down a little, but I wouldn't sell them for less than 25 Ls!

 

So anyway, my lectures are over, it's like 6 PM and dark as shizzle already and as I walk towards my tram station I'm choosing my victim. Almost every time I do this, I do it after my lectures, so I think I might be conditioning my brain to be afraid from leaving the University building :D Anyway, I finally spot this woman with her child and I approach her. "Excuse me, do you want to buy my headphones?" I ask. I felt like she actually was annoyed by that question, as if I was some crazy street salesman trying to scam her. Obviously she said no. I didn't quit, though, and I told her that the headphones were really good and the sound quality was good too, as she was leaving. Without even looking back, she says "No" even more angrily than before.

 

I actually kinda wanted to not get rejected this time, because I would've made some money that way :D But of course, getting rejected was my goal and thus that felt good too.

 

In other news...

 

Still nervous for my gig!

I don't understand a lot of these challenges. Yes I understand they're made to put you out of your comfort zone, but they're never fruitful. All it does is set you up for getting used to doing things you don't want and having nothing come out of them.

 

It's good that you're doing something about it, though, anxiety is a nice doggy! to deal with.

It makes me used to getting rejected either if I do or don't want to actually do them. There are a lot of things in life that you must do that you don't really want to do, but you know that you have to do. Also I don't really go into it with the mindset that I don't want to do those things and so I actually want to fail (well, there have been some occasions of that I admit). For example, this time I would've actually made money if the woman would've agreed.

 

These challenges make me get used to rejection of any shape or form. And if you don't fear rejection, then you can do the things you want to do and aren't stopped by your anxiety.
