Growing up, I was never a particularly social or outgoing guy. I wasn’t one of the “popular” kids in high school or college and I leaned toward an introverted personality type. Quiet, reserved, and a little shy.
For most of my early 20’s, I found myself just nodding along and agreeing with what other people said because I’d never put in the effort to develop my own unique personality.
Whenever I was talking with someone and a third person entered the conversation, I quickly faded into obscurity while everyone else joked and chatted.
I assumed the role of the “Silent Third Wheel”, a sort of spectator in social settings…someone sitting on the sidelines rather than acting as a leader of conversations and interactions.
As I grew older, I began to realize that my introverted and often socially awkward tendencies were negatively affecting my dating life and preventing me from meeting the women I wanted.
Not to mention its detriment to my professional life and business opportunities.
And throughout it all, I couldn’t help but wonder, “Why am I so awkward?”
I knew that being socially awkward was holding me back from living the life I wanted and after taking a hard look in the mirror and acknowledging my weaknesses, I committed to learning how to be less socially inept and taking action toward the life I wanted.
Little by little, I began to improve. I noticed myself being and feeling more extroverted. Conversations started to flow more smoothly. And when I started to taste real social success…my life changed forever.
For the first time in my life, I built an abundant dating life filled with women I wouldn’t have even talked to the year before. I started making more and more powerful business connections and acquiring mentors who helped me achieve wild success in my entrepreneurial endeavors.
But most importantly, I developed a greater sense of personal identity and self-confidence.
I never became the “Life of the party” and that was never my goal. But I did learn how to assert myself in social situations with men and women, connect deeply through stimulating conversations, and leave everyone I interacted with better off than before.
And today, I’m going to teach you how I did it.
This guide will teach you step-by-step how to be less socially awkward and more persuasive. You’ll learn the exact systems and strategies that took me from a social zero to her, and, if you take action…I promise, your social life will never be the same again.
