Play Rejection Therapy: The Game You Win if Someone Tells You “No”

Idealist

Where

The more you’re rejected, the more it doesn’t seem like such a scary thing.

That's the premise behind Rejection Therapy, a new game that aims to bring people out of our comfort zones and make them less averse to risk.

Says game creator James Comley, "As I began to look for rejection, I discovered a unique thing about my comfort zone: it was elastic. The more I pushed past the boundaries, the more it would expand."

    Totally agree, let us master the art of rejection, let us transcend our own fears. Regards.

    I'm in the process of applying to be a leader for Bike & Build. I have never led peers for more than a week. This would be a 3.5-month-long trip. The more I dig deeper into this application, the more my gut tells me I'm not right for the job. But I'm going to finish the application anyway, and if I'm rejected, all will still be well! (At least I could still potentially be a rider. :) )

      I have no idea why I'm so excited for you, but I am. If this is something you want to do, go for it! Not much to lose.

      Go Jamie! Fingers crossed for you. But I like your win-win perspective: if you don't get to be a leader, you can at least work on your rejection skills!

    I love this idea. Thanks for sharing. Wondering what the cards are like. Are they super specific or general? Would love to know how they inspire you to get out of your comfort zone. Have you tried it?
