English Video Discussion - Rejection

This is a great video by Jia Jiang about how he turned rejection into success and worked through his fear of rejection. I find him very inspiring and hope that you and your students enjoy his talk as much as I did.

Pre- Discussion:

  1. What is rejection?
  2. When do we feel rejected?
  3. How do we deal with rejection when it happens?
  4. Do you agree with the statement, "Rejection can make us stronger?"

Post Discussion:

  1. Why did the speaker desire to beat rejection in his life?
  2. What did he begin to do in order to overcome rejection?
  3. How did he deal with rejection when it happened in his experiment?
  4. Do you agree with his way of handling rejection?
  5. Do you think you would try to do a similar experiment? Why or why not?

    1. Rejection is simply a signal to try another approach...or provide a better reason for why they should accept you, your proposal, but your product etc... ("If at first you don't succeed try try again")

    2. "Trying another approach" is a great way to see it. I love how the guy in the video just begins to ask questions after being rejected, then people let down their guard.
