March's Theme: Facing Rejection
Come watch this TED talk where Jia Jiang describes his bold adventures into rejection. By seeking out rejection for 100 days — from asking a stranger to borrow $100 to requesting a "burger refill" at a restaurant — Jiang desensitized himself to the pain and shame that rejection often brings. By the end of his journey Jia discovered that simply asking for what you want can open up possibilities where you expect to find dead ends.
