100 days of rejection

Jia Jiang wanted to overcome his fear of rejection so he decided to complete a project: he compiled 100 things to ask for that he knew he’d likely be rejected for, and over the course of 100 days he ticked each one of those things off his list.

His TED talk What I learned from 100 days of rejection explores the consequences of rejection, what unfolded when he directly faced his fear of rejection, and what happens if we don’t take no for an answer.

Jia’s talk has clocked up over four million views.
