Surprising Lessons from 100 Days of Rejection

Surprising Lessons from 100 Days of Rejection

The Hidden Opportunity Behind Every Rejection

The Hidden Opportunity Behind Every Rejection

Jia Jiang is the owner of Rejection Therapy and author of Rejection Proof: How I Beat Fear and Became Invincible, One Rejection at a Time, an indispensable guide to overcoming rejection and living more boldly. After he left a career in the corporate world to pursue life as an entrepreneur, he was soon confronted with everyone's biggest fear – rejection.

To conquer this fear, Jia embarked on a courageous personal quest to seek out rejection and documented his discoveries on his blog, 100 Days of Rejection.

With humor and authenticity, he shares his journey of triumph and self-discovery, leaving audiences with widely applicable strategies for embracing rejection in life and business. Participants also take away a better understanding of how much a world of opportunity can open up to us if we take more chances and break out of our comfort zones.

Surprising Lessons from 100 Days of Rejection

When entrepreneur Jia Jiang left corporate life to build his dream company, he had no idea it also meant facing crushing rejection. To overcome his fear and pain, he decided to fully embrace rejection by making crazy requests for 100 days. To his surprise, the world opened up to him. Jiang flew a plane, taught a college class and befriended a billionaire. In the meantime, he made a viral video blog that got more than six million views on YouTube, and elevated a well-known company’s stock by 29 percent. This presentation will show the humorous and insightful learning and truth about rejection and fear Jiang has discovered, and their practical applications in life and business.

 

The Leadership of Rejection (College)

Jia Jiang always believed that leadership came from power and position, and that racial differences were an insurmountable barrier among all people. However, through social media, he discovered that leadership is all about authenticity, empathy and influence. Jiang believes that everyone has the ability to develop effective leadership qualities by confronting their fears and connecting with others on a level deeper than those fostered by our differences in culture and appearance.
