Welcome to this simple challenge, this is also recommended by Tim Ferriss as an experiment that everyone should try.
Purpose: Overcoming fear. Train your communication and negotiation skills.
- Next time when you purchase a cup of coffee, ask for a 10% discount off the total bill.
- When asked why you need a discount, you can use any reasons you like to respond and negotiate.
- It may seem odd and feel intimidated for asking, especially when other customers may be around and heard what you said.
- Don’t worry about what others may say or feel about you. Its an experiment to step out of your comfort zone no matter what the result is. Nothing to lose.
- Comment and tells us how it went afterward, great to hear your stories…….
Lessons to be learned:
- If you never ask for what you want, you will never get it.
- Be very specific on the absolute worst outcome, it normally turns out not that bad.
