Publisher's Summary

Are you frustrated with finding yourself in awkward situations full of embarrassing social blunders? 

Do you feel like you're drowning when you talk to people due to your social anxiety?

Are you tired of giving yourself the constant excuse that you are “too shy” or “socially awkward” to talk and connect with others?

If you find yourself saying yes to any of these questions, we might have a solution for you. The panic that sets in when you try to talk to someone new is terrifying. You may consider yourself “too shy” or “socially awkward”.

Without good social skills, you may suffer from low self-esteem that may prevent you from going out, making friends, going on dates, getting your dream job, and just having the quality lifestyle you dreamed of. Social anxiety does not have to take over your life.

In 2018, Steve Bressert stated in the Psych Central study, “Facts About Shyness”, that 40 to 60 percent of adults consider themselves shy, and for most people, shyness is something that is learned later in life.

Hopelessly, these adults live life poorly, not being able to connect with anyone. Evidently, if you can be taught how to be shy, then you can also be shown how to become more outgoing and happy. Thankfully, this book holds the fountain of knowledge that will show you how to be confident and successful in any given social setting and obtain the quality lifestyle you desire.

In this helpful guide you’ll discover:
 

  • The four little-known barriers causing you to live a life of debilitating social anxiety (and how how to pinpoint and stop each one from destroying your social life)
  • Ways to use seven simple strategies to take the edge off your anxiety and grow your self-confidence
  • Things that confident people know about boosting their self-esteem by using these four simple methods that anxiety-ridden people aren't aware of
  • Ways to start a conversation with a stranger and how to fix it in no time if things get too awkward
  • Reasons why your confidence goes down and your anxiety goes up when talking to new people and how to eliminate your horrible social anxiety
  • One essential truth you may have forgotten but is commonly used to reduce your fears and insecurities that may trigger your social anxiety
  • How to identify three styles of communication people use and how to use it to your advantage
  • The absolute worst six things you may be doing right now that are making things unbearable and awkward for everyone involved
  • And much, much more!

By relying on these expertly researched facts that will ease your social anxiety, this audiobook will show you how to read any social situation and what to say to avoid any awkward situations.

So, if you want relief from social anxiety, learned shyness, awkward situations, and much more, click on the "buy now" button.

Great book.

The most important part of the book is the social skills for kids, because it is much easier for them to improve their confidence and sociability. Great book, highly recommended for shy and uncertain people.

This audiobook helped motivate.

This audiobook helped motivate to be more social than how to be social, but I refer this book to my other introvert friends because I think it can help them too.

Excellent.

Excellent. It adds structure to social interaction, confirms what you have been doing right, and illuminates what wrong you have been doing wrong, and how to do it right. As a person who deals mostly with computers, this is exactly what I needed.

The book helps me to be more thoughtful.

Moreover, the book helps me to be more thoughtful of what I am saying by putting me in other shoes and predict how the other person might respond to what I say.

Excited to finish this book.

Excited to finish this book. It is honest and straight forward. It doesn't have that unrealistic positive magic pill vibe. It says things as they are and that it takes time, practice and effort to develop your social skills to the level you want them to be.
