Publisher's Summary

Shy? Quiet? Nervous? Does your heart beat fast? Does your throat clench? Do you overthink social interactions?

Forget shyness. Forget being the quiet person in the back of the room. There’s nothing wrong with being an introvert, but society has largely confused this term with a real problem that many face: social anxiety.

Communicating your authentic self to others is crucial to achieve success and a happy life. If you are among the 40 to 60 percent of people who report being shy, this book will guide you through the necessary steps to learn to be yourself in front of others. 

This step-by-step guide to stop being shy and being yourself in front of anyone teaches:

  • How the author, Mark Metry, went from having severe social anxiety, unable to speak to anyone or even make eye contact, to becoming a socially free person and speaking on stage to thousands of people worldwide
  • How to conceptualize shyness for what it really is: a glitchy nervous system run by ancestral neurochemistry and other biological functions
  • How to establish long-lasting motivation and consistency for your existence: to do what you really want to do, without being affected by the opinions of others
  • How to use food, sleep, and other biological tools to reengineer your body’s physiology and rewire your brain to be less socially anxious
  • How to redesign yourself as a human: Change the way you think about yourself, understand the layers of social anxiety, overcome overthinking, and get on the path to be capable of learning anything.
  • How to rip off the mask of false confidence and expose yourself psychologically with exposure therapy
  • How to begin expressing your true self at work as an entrepreneur and even sharing your voice on social media, if that is what you desire 

Includes more than 50 scientific references and exercises at the end of each chapter to take action!
