Today I completed my first dare! I asked for a refund, even though it’s several days past the full refund date. And guess what? No pushback, no questions, they agreed to give a full refund. I didn’t want to ask. It was uncomfortable. It turns out it was so easy. Mental barriers ARE the biggest obstacles. My next dares: workout at the gym (where I often see coworkers) without any makeup, ask for a day off, run for a full minute at 7.5 mph, wear obnoxious nail polish.
And now my question: is the purpose of these dares to feel rejection? to feel uncomfortable? to push the limits of what I think is possible? If the purpose is to feel rejection, then I need to step up my dares. And that just made me feel anxious….
