You’re A Poopy Head!
At the same time, this is one of our deepest fears.
This is why despite the massive piles of cash that can be made in sales, few people would go near a sales job.
This not only requires talking to other people, but getting rejected by others.
That huge pile of cash is smack dab on the other side of one of the biggest fears of all.
Just imagine, for a second, that you had ZERO fear of rejection. You could talk to anybody, anywhere, any time and say anything, just to see what would happen. Even if they started screaming and yelling at you like you were the Devil himself, you’d just think it was pretty funny. Like a four year old kid calling you a poopy-head.
What could you do? What would you be able to accomplish?
Here’s a trick that can help that happen. It won’t happen automatically, and you’ve got to practice it for a while, but when you do, it’ll sink in and become automatic.
Everybody, regardless of who they are, has a HUGE collection of fears. Even the greatest actors of all time suffer from MASSIVE stage fright.
CEO’s who made billions have a collection of irrational fears just like everybody else.
And as you can guess, many of these fears stem from childhood.
One of the deepest fears, which was installed BEFORE we learned any language, is fear of abandonment.
We crapped our pants, we cried, and for a while, nobody came to help us. Sure it may have only been a minute or two, but from a one month old’s perspective, that was an eternity.
So here’s the trick.
Next time you see somebody you’d love to approach and start a conversation with, for whatever reason, just imagine them as being one month old. Laying in their crib with a big steaming pile in their pants.
Screaming their heads off, and wondering why nobody is coming to help them.
Do this until you feel sympathy for them. Then, once you start feeling genuine sympathy for them, imagine walking over, one adult to another, and making them feel good. Imagine that YOU have the power to uplift them, rather than the other way around.
Most people see somebody they’d like to talk to, and imagine that other person has all the power.
But this quick exercise will quickly dissolve that imagination, and replace it with a more resourceful one.
