Overcoming Rejection with Jia Jiang

At Gateway Church in Austin, we continued our series called Voices.

Yesterday we heard from Jia Jiang whose story is powerful, hilarious, and inspiring! He was part of our church years ago when he stumbled across www.rejectiontherapy.com which helped him gain confidence as an entrepreneur as he sought out 100 days of rejection. Ironically, he was surprised at how many times people said yes to his outlandish requests. He now owns the website and offers free resources to help us overcome the fear of rejection.

Jia’s videos of his adventures have gone viral and opened the doors for speaking at TED and on television shows and featured on podcasts.

In his book Rejection Proof: How I Beat Fear and Became Invincible One Rejection at a Time, Jiang will “take you on a journey past fear, through rejection, and all the way to empowered courage.”

Next Steps:

Work through the following questions and Scriptures on your own, and get together with your running partner, life group, or friends and family to talk through what you are learning.
