After doing the lie down comfort zone challenge a few more times I had stopped caring what people think of me and my confidence levels had increased.
But I still found it a challenge to talk to strangers, assert myself, handle rejection or go out by myself.
So I enrolled in the full length course Make Yourself Do Anything.
This course covers both social and desensitization challenges over a six-week time-frame and provides useful techniques on motivation, building courage and overcoming fear.
Here are videos of me doing some of those challenges:
Howling Like A Wolf In Public
Dancing In Public
Push Ups In Public
I dedicated my free time to these challenges and completed them in three weeks.
Each challenge gave a massive boost to my confidence.
Out of all the challenges I found howling like a wolf and asking someone your attracted to increased my confidence levels the most despite making me the most anxious and nervous.
So how has doing Comfort Zone Challenges transformed my life?
I can approach attractive women and talk to them without wanting anything in return – I can show up knowing my value and worth and owning who I am and what I have to offer. I don’t need to impress them, or need their approval, or for them to like me.
I can go out by myself and have a great time and meet new people.
I’m not missing out on doing cool things if the people I know can’t make it or don’t want to go.
I can assert myself and ask for what I want – I flat out asked Aziz Gazipura to feature me on an episode of Shrink for The Shy Guy…listen to my interview here.
I am able to handle rejection and know that this is only feedback not failure and grow from the experience.
I can stand in front of a large group of strangers and give a speech.
I am able to do things that I once avoided like going on scary amusement park rides, observation towers, walking up to groups and joining in the conversation, travelling by myself to different cities, and much much more.
But the two best things to come from doing these challenges has been helping my daughter build her confidence and self-esteem and using my experiences and knowledge to help others overcome their fears and limiting self beliefs.
