2 years ago by in Get Fired Up., Videos

After Jia Jiang’s wife told him they won’t live with regrets - Jia quit his job at Dell to fulfill his dream of building his own startup. Four months later he was rejected by investors and started his journey of 100 Days of Rejection Therapy, where he actively sought one rejection per day to strengthen himself mentally. To his amazement, he encountered something beautiful and started to view rejection through a whole new lens.

Jia Jiang shares his story at TEDxAustin and you can follow his blog, 100 Days of Rejection Therapy.

Rejection can be constant, can be very painful and fearful but also can be delicious and very useful. It’s nothing but a number.

My 100 Days of Rejection Therapy has taught me hundreds of things. But if I had to pick just one thing, it was that when bad things happen, if you treat them like good things and fight forward, magic will happen later. - Jia Jiang
