“Rejection was my curse, was my boogie man, had bothered me my whole life because I was running away from it. Then, I started embracing it and turned that into the biggest gift in my life.”
This Jia Jiang TED talk is one of the best (and most entertaining) talks I’ve seen in a long time.
Jiang explains how he was terrified of rejection his whole life until he decided to force himself to experience 100 rejections in 100 days. He then details what he learned from the experiment including some hilarious stories of his attempts to get rejected and the incredible ways his life changed in the process.
I bet his story would make a great movie.
