I am such a WIMP.
Last week I had a dentist appointment, but chickened out at the last minute and purposefully didn’t show up.
(I need to get a filling replaced, but keep avoiding it due to the reason of: I am scared of needles.)
Well, the dentist just sent me a $50 no-show fine. So now I’m actually PAYING money to not face my fears + I still have to get the filling replaced.
I guess the only way to get through this —> is to JUST DO IT.
Sooooo, I’d like to make a deal with you… How about this…
I will face my fears and do something I don’t want to do, if you face your fears and do something you don’t want to do.
I’ll get my filling fixed.. And YOU will do that thing you’ve been putting off because you’re scared. We can hold each other accountable.
Ok, now shake my hand…
OK, good. We have a deal.
Have a great day! I’m off to face my fears — (and actually show up)
Thank you for holding me accountable.
