What is a Rejection Ambassador:
A Rejection Ambassador is someone who, after either playing the Rejection Therapy game, or watching 100 Days of Rejection, or reading Rejection Proof, or hearing one of Jia’s speeches, wants to take on a leadership role and apply the concept to empower others in their own communities and organizations while improving themselves.
Why become a Rejection Ambassador:
Do you know who are held back by their fear of rejection? Answer: pretty much everyone. We are genetically built to be afraid of rejection, judgment, and ostracism from others. This fear kept us safe and together throughout our ancestry, but has become a serious roadblock in modern societies, businesses, and creative fields.
To avoid rejection, we rather reject ourselves. We don’t try, risk and experiment. We play it safe while making excuses for not trying. As the results, ideas are wasted, goals are missed, business opportunities are lost, and lives are unfulfilled.
Now you have learned the concept and experienced the power of Rejection Therapy, you can use it to impact others, your communities, and the world. Moreover, the best way to learn something is to teach and lead it. You will become much stronger after this.
How to become a Rejection Ambassador:
FOLLOW THESE RULES:
1. Form a group of at least five people. This could be a group you intentionally form, or an existing company/church/friends gatherings.
2. Watch Jia’s TED talk together to become familiar with the concept of Rejection Therapy (It’s 16 minutes long. Trust me, no one will complain about watching it).
3. You challenge and organize everyone in the group to do activities outside of their comfort zones for the following week – one activity per day per person.
They could but don’t have to be rejection attempts. For businesses, it could be reaching out to past/potential clients, having difficult conversations or coming up with improvement ideas. For churches, it could be inviting friends to visit. Any group or individual activities that could be considered both positive and comfortable would count.
Remember: one uncomfortable activity per day per person. Also, have fun and encourage each other!
4. After one week, you organize the group to meet again and discuss the most daring/uncomfortable thing they have done, and what they’ve learned from it.
BONUS: Everyone shares that most daring thing on Twitter or Facebook under #RejectionTherapy in order to encourage others and have us retweet.
