100 Days of Rejection

100 Days of Rejection

How often do you allow your business or your dreams to be held back because of fear of rejection?

How many of your clients simply don’t get the help they really need because you are scared they might say “No” – and so you don’t step up to fully serve them?

If this sounds like you then you will LOVE this short video that a new client told me about last week – thank you Anna.

It’s a talk by Jia Jiang at Tedx about how he challenged himself to 100 days of Rejection after facing a devastating business setback.

It is entertaining, uplifting and inspiring – and who knows, maybe it will inspire you to risk a spot of rejection this week?   And what I loved most of all is that it’s also a bit of a love story …

Go make yourself a cuppa and sit back and watch this – it’s just 12 minutes long but it could make your day – especially if it inspires you to go out and get rejected!

Go on, I challenge you – put yourself up for rejection today – and do let me know how you get on by commenting below

Happy rejection!

    Hi Catherine,

    What a brilliant and video.

    His fearless and optimistic approach to asking is truly inspiring and as the speaker said – “Rejection is just a number”.

    Thank you for posting it in your blog as this has been inspiring and reminded me maybe I had forgotten about the joy in connecting with people.

      Hi Chris, thanks for your comment and I’m glad you loved it as much as I did – I also found it totally inspiring and heartwarming. The point you make about the joy of connecting is so true – I think that when we don’t put ourselves in a position to be rejected we also miss out on the connection that entails and life is the poorer.

    Thank you for sharing this Catherine. This is a brilliant video and great idea. I’ve got a couple of friends and we are trying to look for ways to be rejected. Lets see how it goes and looking for ideas of things to ask for !

      Hi Andrea
      Yes it’s a brilliant video isn’t it – I loved it. It makes me realise it takes huge courage to be rejected – even when we are expecting it. But it’s also heartwarming how many times he got a Yes when he was expecting a No – it’s an important reminder of just how many “Yeses” we might miss out on in our business just because we have “made up” in our heads that we are going to get a no.

    Thanks Catherine
    Definitely something for me…
    Using games to find solutions for life’s challenges. The world will open to you if you open yourself to the world. The kindness of strangers. Rejection is a normal part of business (and life)
    Looking forward to using this 😉
