Jia Jiang, author of Rejection Proof, is well known for putting himself through 100 days of rejection. For 100 consecutive days, he made an audacious ask to get a no. His goal was to desensitize himself from the pain of rejection and overcome the fear.
The result? While he initially received a plethora of no’s, those no’s started turning into yes’s. Because his inner confidence increased, his delivery changed when making big asks and he became fearless — Jia didn’t care about hearing no.
Imagine if you had this type of mindset when asking a VC for money, asking someone to buy your service or product, making presentations, or at a networking event.
