Mike Tyson Is Right… A Punch In The Face Erases Most Plans!
So what does the day-to-day grind of business that comes guaranteed with a slew of rejection do to your business plans?
Well, consider that, rejection is mentally and physically painful. It can be like a punch in the face. The degree of pain varies, but rejection can literally cause you pain. It’s because the same areas of our brain become active when we feel pain and when we are rejected. Play these two scenarios in your head and see how you feel about them:
- Imagine you met an attractive person over the weekend and exchange phone numbers or social media handle after a seemingly good connection is made. However, when you ask them to hang out a few days later they totally blow you off.
- Imagine you networked with an important buyer at an event and hit it off. However, when you follow up they completely blow you off.
What do these situations feel like? Well, to your brain you might as well have been punched in the face. The reason is scientific. Our brains process emotional and physical pain the same way. You see, both emotional and physical pain releases the same chemicals and activates the same areas of the brain. If you have ever wondered why social or business rejection hurts so much this is why. The same applies to rejection you face that stimulates negative emotions. The good news is that by using techniques of positive thinking you can diminish or avoid this type of rejection pain. Even better, you can learn to overcome rejection and get what you seek. Now that type of success feels amazing.
Here Are 4 Persuasion Life Hacks To Empower You & Make Your Quality Of Life Significantly Better
Persuasion Hack #1 The music you listen to changes your perception. Different types of music affect how you view the world around you. Not a big surprise to you probably. Do you use this as a power technique to control emotions, anxiety and position yourself to fend off depression? We all learned early in life that music could change our mood. For example, upbeat songs can create feelings of being on top of the world. Conversely, a sad song can cause a downward emotional spiral. Consider this study conducted that examined if music could affect the way you perceive your environment. Participants were asked to identify happy and sad faces while different songs played. Amazingly it turns out people struggled to recognize happy faces during sad songs and sad faces during happy and upbeat songs. Wow! The music made them see things that were not actually there. This is called a perceptual expectation and occurs because when you hear one thing through your ears your brain will expect to see something similar through your eyes. So you see, this is the power of how music can improve a bad day, empower a workout, help after a breakup or brighten you up after rejection. Music sets the tone by creating that perceptual expectation. Use this to your advantage to be more persuasive.
Persuasion Hack #2 Rejection can cause anxiety. Anxiety also arises sometimes leading up to a big presentation, asking for something important or before any persuasive situation faced, however, singing reduces anxiety. Try this power trick to calm yourself before a “big ask” you are about to make or even after a rejection. Sing! Yes, just sing loud and proud to music that inspires you, makes you feel alive and feel the energy of life, or is just pleasant, calming or upbeat to your brain. Choose whatever impacts you positively and sing it. If you prefer privacy, try singing in the car and in the shower to fend off anxiety and depression. If you are driving somewhere about to give a super important presentation, then turn on your favorite song and sing loudly. Once again, science empowers you because singing floods your brain with endorphins and oxytocin. Both endorphins and oxytocin relieve stress and improve your mood. Eureka! This will make you feel comfortable while keeping your cortisol level low. Even the worst singer like me can reduce anxiety and turn any day around to a positive and powerful day that makes you more successful.
Persuasion Hack #3 Sleep matters to persuasion. Consider over-sleeper’s paradox. After sleeping for ten or more hours how do you feel? Logically, you should feel great because you gave your brain plenty of time to relax and detoxify, but somehow you feel lacking and tired. Kind of like you did not get enough sleep. You see, sleeping too much is just as harmful to your persuasion as not sleeping enough. Too much and not enough sleep can devastate the productive day you had planned. You will feel foggy and fatigued because it imbalances your almighty biological clock. Look at it this way and imagine your trying to do a cartwheel. If you don’t flip enough you fall, but when you flip too much you fall. You have to flip just the right amount. Sleeping is identical in manner so to avoid feeling tired you must sleep the right amount. I suggest you determine what that amount is right for you keeping in mind that studies indicate a healthy adult requires seven to eight hours while children and teens require more sleep. The powerful point is that when you sleep the right amount of hours your persuasion success goes up.
Persuasion Hack #4 The power of sunlight makes you a more powerful persuader. Ever noticed you feel down when you spend too much time indoors, but after walking outside your mood changes almost instantaneously? As science teaches us, sunlight is good for more than just your bones. Sunlight can actually prevent mood disorders like seasonal affective disorder, anxiety disorders, and depression. We get vitamin D from the sun, which acts as a mood stabilizer and releases pleasurable hormones. Ever heard the expression, “Fun in the sun?” You see, this is why people in locations with less sunlight are more likely to be depressed. The good news is all you need is 10-minutes of direct sunlight to literally and figuratively brighten up your world. Especially, when you are using sun power to empower your persuasive power.
