Sean Cooper explains in his program The Shyness and Social Anxiety System:
“Social Anxiety (SA) is often based on the assumption that you are in some way weak, inferior, inadequate or less good that others, combined with the fear people will notice this (supposedly inherent) defect and disapprove of you.
“And the disapproval will have dire consequences for your ability to get on with people and to feel you belong.
“Because of their fear of disapproval, people with SA react to situations where they think they will experience disapproval or rejection in the same way that most people would react to real danger.
“They may experience physical or mental symptoms. ”

The Shyness and Social Anxiety System
I’m actually a pretty normal guy, who went through a point where I decided that I needed to finally figure out how to get rid of my social anxiety and shyness.
I won’t bore you with the details, but I was going through a time where I had just moved to a new city… and I realized my inner issues were making me feel completely alone and isolated. I had no friends or romantic relationships. One night I said to myself “I am going to figure this out for myself, no matter what it takes”.
Well, it wasn’t exactly easy to “figure it out”. I spent the next few years reading a lot of books, listening to “motivational tapes”, going to seminars, and generally trying out a lot of whacky ideas that I was learning.
I quickly found out that most of the information on overcoming shyness and social anxiety out there was not only bad … it was worse than useless!
Having Social Anxiety Sucks!
You’re not able to to do and enjoy many of the same thing that other, “normal,” people take for granted.
You can’t deal with meeting new people.
It’s hard to get any type of job.
It seems next to impossible to try to form any close friendships and relationships with people.
Public speaking is the worst thing imaginable.
And the list could go on and on.
Believe me, I know how bad it is to have social anxiety because that is exactly how I used to be.
Notice how I said “used” to be. I figured out a way to destroy social anxiety FOR GOOD.
I no longer feel social anxiety in most social situations. Sure, I still get anxious occasionally, but that’s only at times when anyone would get reasonably anxious. And I never get overwhelmed by anxiety like I used to.
Once I found the “cure” for social anxiety, my life was never the same.
And no, it doesn’t have anything to do with taking prescription drugs or doing some type of weird hypnosis or new age rubbish.
The cure I found is completely natural, proven effective, and based on the most cutting edge neurological science.
