This Talk is amazing. Jia Jiang talks about how his childhood fears were holding him back. Then how he learned to stare down and work through his fears. But what I loved the most was what happened on day 3 of his rejection journey, which you can watch separately on YouTube – search “Olympic Doughnuts.”
He goes in to Krispy Kreme – looking for rejection – and instead people go above and beyond to help him.
I love the evidence – that we aren’t all doomed – and sometimes, all we need to do is ask. Of course we will hear No more often than not, but occasionally we’ll get a mind blowing yes that can carry us forward for days and years. (Link for video here.)
