Rejection Therapy

Rejection Therapy

Rejection.

In life, rejection is inevitable. Whether you’re rejected by a company you wanted to work for, by a girl or guy you really wanted to date, by society, by some friends…the list can go on. If it hasn’t happened yet, rejection will come sometime in life.

As I’ve been starting this new freelance job, I’ve had many successes, but that only comes with even more rejections. Even people like the famous author, C.S. Lewis, received 800 rejections before he sold his first piece of writing.

My brother sent me this video of an inspiring speaker, Jia Jiang, who talks about Rejection Therapy. He went through 100 Days of Rejection Therapy to try to desensitize himself from the pain of rejection and overcome his fear. A very interesting story about rejection. If you have 23 minutes to spare, I’d encourage you to take some time to watch!
