Rejection & Finding great people

Posted by Brandon Dillon on January 7, 2013

This last Saturday we had a Leadership Seminar here in Michigan with The Team and Mark Militello was speaking and he talked about a guy named Jia Jiang¬† and that he was trying to get 100 no’s to help with his fear of rejection. So he devised ways to come up with such crazy request that he would get told no and it would help him not take it so hard and get used to it in becoming a great entrepreneur.¬† While this is a great endeavor he is undertaking he has met some amazing people and I wanted to highlight one.

This girl Jessica¬†that works for¬†Krispy Kreme he asked for her to get him some doughnuts that looked like the Olympic Rings connected and the right colors and to do it in 15 minutes! He was just hoping for a rejection and to be on his way but she bent over backwards to help him get what he wanted. Jessica was pretty amazing in the effort and problem solving she went on to help him accomplish his request ( which she didn’t know that he really just wanted her to say no we cant do it, probably like most people would)

I think this is amazing because in his journey of trying to build his self esteem against rejection to better him self he’s found some very great people in his journey and Jessica is one of them.

Below are two videos and a link to Jia Jiangs blog and youtube page. What do you think?

The Return Video where he explains to Jessica what he was doing and thanks her because so many people loved her for what she tried to do and how big her heart was in helping him.

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The new Boeing 787 Dreamliner can carry about 250 passengers. This blog was viewed about 1,100 times in 2012. If it were a Dreamliner, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.
