The Lucas Rockwood Show

Fear is one of the most powerful motivators on the planet. Unfortunately, it usually motivates us to play small, hide in our own shell, and avoid the awkward and personally challenging situations needed for us to self actualize. But to face your fear, almost by definition, means to embrace rejection. And for most people, rejection is scary.  

 

This week, Lucas and guest Jia Jiang discuss the power of “rejection therapy”. Jia Jiang is an entrepreneur, blogger, speaker and writer. He's the founder of the online site Fearbuster.com that aims to beat fear one rejection at a time. He conducted a personal experiment where he asked for 100 different whacky things 100 days in a row just to completely break down the fear of reaction and welcome the world of possibilities—and that's why I have him on the show here today.

 

While you're listening, you can learn more about his work at Fearbuster.com

 

In this Show, You'll learn:

  • What is “rejection therapy” , and where the idea came from

  • How you can go about defeating your fear of rejection

  • Some exercise you can start practicing at home to improve your self-confidence
