He starts with a story about his kindergarten teacher doing a gift and compliment exercise (which backfired horribly.)

He created “Rejection Therapy”, going out and deliberately getting rejected over and over again to desensitize himself. He created a blog based on his experiences called “100 Days of Rejection” where he filmed himself in various scenarios like asking a complete stranger to borrow $100 or asking for a “burger refill” at a fast food restaurant. As each rejection occurred, he found himself becoming less and less fearful of rejection and built up his self-confidence. He creates “Rejection Therapy” with helping himself out, going out and deliberately getting rejected over and over again to desensitize himself. He created a blog based on his experiences called “100 Days of Rejection”.
