Jia Jiang came to the United States with the dream of being the next Bill Gates. But despite early success in the corporate world, his first attempt to pursue his entrepreneurial dream ended in rejection. Jia was crushed, and spiraled into a period of deep self doubt. But he realized that his fear of rejection was a bigger obstacle than any single rejection would ever be, and he needed to find a way to cope with being told no without letting it destroy him. Thus was born his "100 days of rejection" experiment, during which he willfully sought rejection on a daily basis--from requesting a lesson in sales from a car salesman (no) to asking a flight attendant if he could make an announcement on the loud speaker (yes) to his famous request to get Krispy Kreme doughnuts in the shape of Olympic rings (yes, with a viral video to prove it). Jia learned that even the most preposterous wish may be granted if you ask in the right way, and shares the secret of successful asking, how to pick targets, and how to tell when an initial no can be converted into something positive. But more important, he learned techniques for steeling himself against rejection and ways to develop his own confidence--a plan that can't be derailed by a single setback. Filled with great stories and valuable insight, Rejection Proof is a fun and thoughtful examination of how to overcome fear and dare to live more boldly.… (mais)

A booster-shot of positivity and inspiration. ( )
  jasoncomely | Dec 28, 2017 |
Nothing super-revolutionary here, but inspiring nonetheless. My favorite parts of the book were the author's accounts of his rejection attempts. Usually his rejection attempts involved making requests of strangers. That's certainly not easy, but it's not the same as risking rejection from friends, family, colleagues, potential romantic interests. I'm not sure you could set up such exercises, or should, but it's not something he even acknowledged. Still, this book inspired me to ask for a favor from strangers when I normally wouldn't have, and I think it will continue to inspire me to take risks. ( )

What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger

Rejection is a subset of fear. I took the training at Landmark and learned to my own astonishment that the vast majority of North Americans are afraid of people. That’s why they were there. They actually cried at the prospect of dealing with strangers. They dream of being chased and hunted down. People mask their fear by being loud or boisterous, by quickly saying No to everything without thinking about it, or by just avoiding contact with strangers and living behind locked doors, with a gun at the ready. Jiang’s fear of rejection was directly related to being afraid of people and what they might say or do or think of him. In his case, his parents and uncle. His method was to vaccinate himself by approaching strangers with odd requests of no consequence. This desensitized him and made him a much more open person. He has become a national celebrity as a result.

He had wanted his own high tech company, and was so distraught when the one entrepreneur he was working with turned him down, he never even thought to ask why, and adapt his pitch for another go – even with that same investor. I found that bizarre, but it led him to a new mission and a fortuitous chain of events culminating (so far) in this short, easy reading book. It is destined to be a corporate classic like The 10 Minute Manager and the others of that ilk: short enough that everyone will read it, simple enough that everyone will get it, and cheap enough to give to everybody.

The problem with his “system” is he never puts himself at risk. He never asks people he knows for things that make a difference (like investing in his company). So he can ask an animal shelter to borrow a dog for a day, or ask the donut place to make him Olympic Rings donuts, and it doesn’t matter if they say No. At SXSW (where thousands gather to collect data on new products and companies), he had little difficulty handing out pamphlets and having attendees check out the website. In the “capital of live music” he asked someone to perform some music - live. It reminded me of James Thurber bringing an armful of corn into the Corn Exchange Bank and asking for an exchange. No is practically beside the point.

Remarkably for a small empire built on social media, Jiang doesn’t provide links to any of the youtube videos or blog posts he created to document his 100 days of rejection. He describes them in great detail, but especially for the e-book, the absence links to his videos to see him in action is surprising. And it’s too bad he videoed all his attempts, because that must have intimidated people from saying anything stronger than No. It definitely colors the results. It’s also too bad he did this all by himself and didn’t ask any experts. They could have told him – and us – that depending on the circumstances, it is easy to predict when rejections will be few or many. Handing out pamphlets at a tradeshow is very different from asking a mugger if you could have your wallet back.

The deeper he gets into it, the more it resembles the principles of marketing. The best source, which Jiang references too, is Influence. Cialdini divides influencing people into five principle approaches. They are largely intuitive, but knowing them allows you to control and adapt them – and help avoid rejection.

If self desensitization allows people build up an immunity for the real, personal rejection situations, terrific. Certainly worth a try, because the worst they’ll get is a No, and get used to it. And that’s a genuine life lesson we all do need to learn.

Oh. And rejection? Happens less often than we fear.
