The Good, The Bad and The..OK! Day 6
DAY 6 of 30 Little Steps
The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.
One of the most challenging times for a lot of my clients is when they have to deal with groups of people. Whether that's a social or business affair, it strikes fear into the hearts of many.
Many times this is a self fulling prophecy, meaning that you set your set up to not enjoy something, so you brace yourself to have a miserable time, and you do, and this re-enforces this belief that these types of situations are always going to bring you down.
You can't change the situation, you might be able to avoid them sometimes, but ultimately the only real action you can take is to change your perspective on the situation.
Try this: What is the BEST thing that could happen during this event? Really think what would make it fantastic! It's not going to be realistic, we're just exercising your imagination here.
Then: What's the WORST thing that could happen? Were not just talking about being uncomfortable, but a really, rip, roaring HORRIBLE time.
Finally: What would make it OK? If you go to this event and found something useful, or spoke to someone interesting. What would need to happen to make the experience 'good enough'?
Post in the comments, what would be 'good enough'?
See you tomorrow!
