Description

Rejection? It's nothing to be afraid of ...

Maybe you avoid situations where you might be rejected. You don't apply for that dream job. You don't ask for that pay rise. You don't ask that person on a date. But it doesn't have to be that way - the only thing standing between you and your goals ... is you.

Jia Jiang had allowed his fear of rejection to rule his life. But he decided to take radical action: he quit his job and spent 100 days deliberately seeking out scenarios where he would likely be rejected, from ordering donuts interlinked and iced like the Olympic rings to asking to pilot a light aircraft. And something remarkable happened; Jia not only learned how to cope with rejection but also discovered that even the most outrageous request may be granted - if you ask in the right way.

In this infectiously positive book Jia shares what he learned in his 100 Days of Rejection, explaining how to turn a 'no' into a 'yes', and revealing how you too can become Rejection Proof and achieve your dreams.

Review quote

Rejection Proof is a fun, thoughtful examination of how to overcome our fears and dare to live more boldly. You have no idea what you can achieve until you try! * Nancy Duarte, author of Slide:ology * I hope you buy two copies of this book because as soon as you read it, you'll want to give it to someone else who needs a boost of bravery too. * Jon Acuff, author of Do Over and Start * Rejection Proof smashes fear in the face with a one-two punch. You'll laugh out loud at Jia's crazy social experiments, but you'll also go away thinking differently about what you can accomplish. * Chris Guillebeau, author of The Happiness of Pursuit and The $100 Startup * Jia's compelling and inspiring book is a wonderful example of how shifting our perspective can allow us to really see what makes us tick. -- Dan Ariely, author of Predictably Irrational [An] entertaining study of rejection in all its many manifestations. * Daily Mail *
