I read an interesting book today and it was called "Go For No!".
The book told a story about a salesman who instead of seeing how many "yes's" (sales) he could get he would see how many "No's" he could accumulate.
So instead of looking to get 5 people to say yes to a product he was selling, his goal was to get 20 people to say no. In his mind failing wasnt just a part of the initial learning process, it was an integral aspect to succeeding.
So if you were a car salesman and you met your quota for 10 cars that month, you were more likely not to sell anymore cars because your quota had been met and you were satisfied.
By striving to get 200 "No"s in a month, he found that he sold 2-3 times as many cars.
I couldnt help but think of how this could apply perfectly to PUA's. Instead of trying to get 2 phone numbers in one night, you strive to get as many girls in the club/mall/street as possible to say "No".
Obviosuly you don't literally try to get them to say "No", you'd run your game as normal but, you'd just have it in the back of your mind "If I haven't failed at least 50 times this month, then I can't succeed."
This is just kind of a general theory I was thinking about at work today. What do you guys think?
