The Mojo Radio Show EP 276: Resilience In An Everyday Way
This show is about discomfort and the degrees of discomfort that lead to growth. Many of our guests speak of the profound impact discomfort can have on our lives. Kaley Chu, the author of "100 Lunches with Strangers," was a young shy Chinese girl who pushed herself to arrange 100 lunches with complete strangers. In finishing the challenge, Kaley realised her confidence had grown enormously, and the experience had transformed every single aspect of her life, all by getting get out of her comfort zone.When people ask Kaley what she does, how does she like to reply? Born and raised in Hong Kong, how did her background impact how she lived in Australia? How were the perceptions of herself holding her back? Kaley's identity was built on being Asian. How has Kaley changed her core identity as a result of the lunches? Did Kaley's parents influence her identity and beliefs? How did people's perception of Kaley change after a few lunches? How did Kaley handle the rejections? Did Kaley have resilience or determination in any other areas of her life? This project has given Kaley a new way of seeing herself and is now finding other ways to challenge herself. The lunches gave Kaley a sneak-peek into other peoples lives ... "is that what I want?"

What a Ride!”. Hunter S Thompson.
