Make it Social
There was a time when I used to do most things alone. I didn’t feel lonely, or a loner or any other negative label people associate with doing things alone. It was just normal to me. This was until I met someone who was the opposite. He hated doing anything alone, and he needed someone around and would go so far as to beg people to do activities with him. Somehow, it didn’t come from a needy place either.
This was so strange to me, but it made a permanent imprint on me. I took on some of those habits and still keep em in the back pocket. They’re so useful on the social side. He made me feel included, and from then on I thought…”hey, if this is making me feel included, I’m sure other people would like to feel this way too”.
If you’re a person who spends a lot of time alone, consider stretching yourself and inviting other people to do activities with you that you’d normally do alone. You’ll get that yes and you’ll also get objections if you do this enough. Then you go through objection handling (in sales this means having a solid answer to resolve the objection). Then viola! You are doing an activity that was meant to be solo with another person or other people!
