Shyness & Social
I have a confession to make.
For most of my life, I’ve struggled with people calling me quiet and telling me that I don’t talk much.
(I don’t think most people know these types of comments can actually make someone feel WORSE about themselves.)
I didn’t speak very often.
I could only express myself around my brother and a couple of guys I knew really well.
But around other people, I automatically became quiet and awkward. It felt like I LOST most of my personality, social skills and sense of humor around people I didn't know well.
If I was around people I didn’t know well, then it felt like my mind was usually blank … I literally had no idea what to say.
And even when I DID speak up once in a while, my voice always sounded weak, timid and unsure.
I would have people asking me to repeat myself … or leaning in to hear me better in loud places … or sometimes even not noticing that I had said something — like I was invisible!
Other times I felt like I "weirded out" anyone I talked to with my incredible self-consciousness, awkwardness and nervousness.
And the most frustrating part was that it felt like I had tried everything to become more confident and social, and it seemed nothing worked...
The reason why I’m sharing this with you is to make a point...
When you continue to struggle with the same basic problems over and over again, year after year…
In the beginning, I had tried to change. But now I started to DOUBT if it really was possible for me to improve.
Finally, after struggling ALONE with being a quiet, shy and awkward guy for most of my life...
I finally decided to swallow my pride and search for advice.
But that didn't go too well, either...
I'm a big nerd, and when I get interested in a topic, I read EVERYTHING I can about it.
So I decided to spend several months going through every article, book and course that was even a little bit related to conversation and social skills.
I searched the internet for articles, I read the bestselling "Conversation Tips" books at the bookstore, I listened to audio programs and video seminars on confidence.
And guess what?
In the beginning, I was very disappointed.
Most of the books I found in the bookstore and the library didn't help. They just said things like...
"smile" ... "be a good listener" ... "stand up straighter" ... "be interested in other people"
And as I read book after book, I thought to myself:
How did this JUNK even get published!?!!
It was just common sense, packaged into a book.
And it seemed like the point of the books was not even to help readers, but to make the authors ... rich and famous!
So if you haven't yet found any advice that's actually helped you become better at talking to people, then I've got some good news:
The truth is, most of the common advice out there is written by people who have never had to struggle with a REAL lack of confidence or poor conversation skills themselves!
Most of the articles and books out there are written by phony self help gurus and motivational speakers who just repeat whatever advice "sounds good" to them!
Now, I know it's natural to ASSUME that if someone has a book on "confidence" or "conversation" published, then they MUST know what they are talking about...
But think about it: If THEY have never had problems like the ones WE have...
Like not knowing what to say ... or being too quiet ... or freezing up around groups of people...
Then how would THEY know what advice actually works?
All they can do is repeat the same useless advice they read from some other "expert" and HOPE that it will work for you.
Which led me to realize...
It was only after I went PAST all that useless "common advice" and started learning from other more FORBIDDEN SOURCES that I noticed dramatic improvements in my conversation abilities.
What types of sources? I'm talking about...
To overcome my own difficulties with making conversations, I became an information sponge.
In the beginning, progress was painful:
I took the techniques I learned about and tested them out on myself in the real world.
Now, only a few of the ideas and techniques I tried out made any difference. Most of them were pretty useless.
But I kept going. I slowly discovered more of the golden useful ideas... and even started to DEVELOP my own techniques...
And guess what happened?
After spending my whole life being miserably withdrawn in social situations... and weirding out anyone I talked to with my incredible awkwardness and nervousness...
I was truly changing the way people responded to me in conversations:
I know none of these "accomplishments" are even that impressive. All I really learned to do was talk to people in a normal, confident way.
But for a guy like me -- who grew up having basically no friends, no experience with girls, and with really poor social skills -- I felt like I had discovered new superpowers.
Within a couple of months, my social life and dating life completely took off. And my career became better than ever because I wasn't afraid to put myself out there.
The question you're probably asking now is: How EXACTLY did I do it?
I'll show you how you can learn all the same conversation techniques I discovered and developed in just a minute...
Now, I realize my story is a bit unusual and you might be somewhat skeptical at this point.
So let me tell you a bit more about me so you know that I really am a real person...
Just to remind you quickly, my name is Sean Cooper.
First of all, you already know that I was very quiet and didn't talk much. But that's only part of the story.
I grew up with extremely bad social anxiety... to the point where I couldn't even make eye contact with people. I couldn't go to the store without having my armpits dripping with sweat. I couldn't carry on a simple conversation. I had no friends and felt extremely isolated.
My problem got so bad that about 3 years ago, I made the decision to study psychology books and programs like a maniac and (surprisingly) managed to overcome most of my issues.
Then I decided to teach other people how to overcome shyness and social anxiety... and quickly built a loyal following:
Since the beginning, my breakthrough advice received rave reviews from clinical psychologists, professional confidence coaches, and -- best of all -- the customers who bought it.
Here's just a couple examples of these reviews...
"I find something fascinating in what Sean teaches in this program because you can tell he's been through it, he knows personally what it's like to have shyness and social anxiety, and he grasped how to beat it."
- Eduard Ezeanu,
Social Confidence Coach With
9+ Years Experience, Romania
"As someone who has read and studied a lot of different systems in psychology and personal development over the past half decade, I can attest that the techniques shared in Sean's System work."
- Steven Handel,
Journalist At "The Emotion Machine" Who
Has Written 300+ Articles About Psychology
Now that you know a bit about me, I'll continue...
After receiving so much positive feedback about my System, I knew I should figure out more ways to help people struggling with shyness or social anxiety. I knew I should develop solutions for specific problems and frustrations you face daily.
And if you're still reading this page, then you're probably here because your conversation skills simply aren't as good as they should be.
I've decided to create an all-new program.
I'm very proud to announce...
Conversation Hacking is specifically designed for people who are shy, quiet, awkward, nervous and withdrawn in conversations.
It will show you the step-by-step path to become more confident, social and talkative in everyday social situations.
Conversation Hacking is NEW and DIFFERENT than anything else out there because it is based on ideas I've uncovered from many different little-known sources. It's a course that contains the techniques I've developed over the years to help literally thousands of shy and socially anxious people all over the world.
This is a 4-week program. Each video module will be delivered to you weekly.
Here's a quick overview of what you'll learn:
The first module will show you exactly how to eliminate the problem of "not knowing what to say".
Once you go through it, you'll never have to worry about standing there quietly, feeling left out, having a blank mind in social situations or running out of things to say.
The second module will make you louder, more expressive and more confident in conversations.
You'll learn how to use your voice to make yourself a warm, charismatic person people are drawn to.
The reason why you may have a hard time making friends is because you don't TALK to them in a way that leads to a friendship.
This module will show you how to talk to people in a way that connects with them and makes them like you.
If you're frustrated that you totally lose your confidence and personality around people you don't know well, then this program will fix that.
You'll be able to talk to anyone about anything and have it be interesting.
When you decide to invest in the Conversation Hacking Program today, you'll also get two valuable bonus programs that are not available anywhere else...
This bonus will explain why some people are magnets for friends and attention... and other people are stuck being ignored and invisible.
The insights and ideas in this report are ones that I've spent years learning from different sources on marketing, influence and persuasion.
What I've discovered is that there are certain "triggers" that make people immediately see something (or someone) as being popular. This is how some politicians become famous quickly, and why some products are known by almost everyone.
When you know how to use these "triggers" to your advantage, people will start seeing you as being more interesting and desirable to be around. You'll soon find them paying more attention when you speak, contacting you more often, and even inviting you out to do things.
One Breakthrough Psychological "Trick" To Get Last Minute Confidence Whenever You Need It Most, Just Before Any Situation
Most confidence advice sucks. It's obvious and just common sense.
Let me be clear, this bonus video is NOT about:
The little-known technique I'll share with you in this special bonus video is one of my most closely-guarded secrets.
Nobody is teaching it ... at least not for confidence.
Actually, I learned this technique ACCIDENTALLY, when I was studying psychology books about something called "Post Traumatic Stress Disorder".
"Post Traumatic Stress Disorder" is a mental illness. Soldiers who go to war sometimes get it when they are severely traumatized by what they have seen in combat. And when someone has this illness their life becomes a combination of feeling extremely afraid and on edge for no reason, or feeling emotionally numb.
It's a terrible thing to have to live with.
Fortunately, modern psychology has developed some extremely powerful techniques to help people who have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder stay in control of their emotions.
And what I realized is that if this technique can literally transform people who are being RIPPED and torn apart inside by their emotions and memories ... then it would be ten times as effective for people who have less extreme problems like a lack of confidence!
As you now know, this 4 week program is completely new and different than anything else out there.
It's designed specifically for people who are more shy, quiet, nervous or awkward in conversations. It will give you a step-by-step roadmap for knowing what to say to people and being more interesting, confident, talkative, expressive and outgoing.
So, I'll ask you a question:
How much is that worth to you?
Many people spend thousands of dollars on medication, therapy and coaching for their poor conversation and social skills... often with slow, small improvement over years.
Other people spend hundreds of dollars on "self help" books and programs to become more confident... and all they get is useless advice like "think positive" or "fake it until you make it."
Other people spend years of their life trying to look their best by buying new clothes, going to the gym or wearing makeup... or trying to "become successful" with a university degree, high paying job, nice house and car... because they secretly believe this will make them feel more confident.
This program contains over 7+ hours of training videos. Think about it this way: If you were to pay me $100 per hour (a low rate for coaching) to teach you this information personally, then it would cost over $700...
But since I've created a program already, you won't have to pay me for 1-on-1 coaching.
I'm not going to make you pay $700...
You won't even pay a fraction of that...
Since I'll be delivering this program through the internet to you... and teaching many people at the same time... It's really in my best interest to have as many people sign up as possible.
Which is why I decided to do something a little bit insane...
Considering that's less than what you would usually pay for even ONE HOUR of therapy or coaching... I'm sure you can see the incredible value here.
And I'll even add a ridiculous TRIPLE guarantee on top of it...
Cutting Edge Quality
You'll be blown away by the sheer quality of the information and attention to detail of every aspect of the program. Conversation Hacking has been designed with the greatest of care to ensure your quick and easy success.
60 Day No-Questions-Asked Money Back Guarantee
You have two whole months to decide whether the program is right for you. If you are not satisfied for any reason whatsoever, then I will refund 100% of your money. No hard feelings. We will still be friends ;-)
Why am I doing this? Because I want you to have NO RISK in this. I want you to notice yourself improving, BEFORE you decide to commit to the program.
Impact On Your Life
If this program DOESN'T help you become better at talking to people...
Then I WANT you to ask for your money back because I haven't earned it. With this program, you WILL see results, or you won't pay a penny. Don't you wish everyone else was bold enough to offer this type of guarantee?
How do I access the program?
You'll be able to watch the first week of the program right after you order. I'll email you every week when a new module is available. I've found this weekly schedule is best to make sure nobody is overwhelmed with information. The bonuses will be made available near the end of the program.
Is it safe to use my credit card?
Yes, your order is completely safe and secure. I use a company called Stripe to process credit card payments, the same company used by many multi-million dollar websites.
Will anyone find out I ordered this?
I understand that this may be an embarrassing problem in your life, which is why I take careful measures to protect your privacy. Rest assured, the charge on your credit card statement will show "Sean Cooper Coaching" and there will be no mention of the actual product or what it does.
Will I be able to download the videos?
Yes, you'll be able to watch the video modules online or you can download them to your computer.
I need to wait for a better "life situation" when I can use this information.
Even if you don't start going out and meeting dozens of new people tomorrow, you should still sign up. That way you'll be able to make progress even if you're mostly stuck at home now... and you'll know exactly what to do on that day when you are "ready." Remember, this offer is only up for a few days, then it will be gone for months.
Where can I contact you?
If you have any questions or comments, then you can contact me here.
Here's the way I see it: most people who buy any type of "self improvement" product NEVER improve themselves... because they never actually USE the information!
Think about how many diet, nutrition and exercise products there are out there. Most people who buy those diet products or exercise machines never really lose weight. They just keep eating the same bad food they always have and not exercising.
This being the case... if you're looking for some "magic pill" that's going to cure you instantly with no effort, then Conversation Hacking is probably not for you.
This program is for people who want to follow a realistic, proven formula that builds REAL confidence and social skills that can change your life.
Don't take my word for it, take a look at some of the feedback I've received about my other products...
Your system was the same price as one-way train ticket from where I live to the capital in my country and back again. I figured I could benefit more from your product than one day trip to the capital, Oslo.
I have only used your information for a short time, but I already notice I am more confident now. One specific situation was that I got the job in my last job interview, cause I was able to be more calm and confident.
You could get a better layout on the members website. And post something there more often.
When I first saw your system, I was worried that it wouldn’t work and I didn’t want to waste money.
Since reading your information, I’ve started improving my conversation skills and being more spontaneous. I can start conversations with people I never would have before (people more popular than me, etc). I have more confidence and am revealing myself more to people.
I am now attempting to make conversations with as many people possible. Sometimes i feel like i have the motivation and sometimes i dont. But i am getting better now over time.
I only continued with the purchase because a friend had bought it already and said it was good.
The system is great and the cost is good too! I have been practicing your techniques and have had a number of pleasant conversations already because of this.
After reading your information i began to see a difference in how i acted. now i want to and enjoy talking to people.
i love the website and the fact that i get email alerts when you post a new article
I always was quite a loner and i liked it, I was enjoying being alone. The situation changed when I when to college, in a different city of my own (for my sake very close to my hometown).
Then I was left alone. Completely, unbearably alone. No one talks me, even to ask for a pen…Then I realized that there was a problem. I needed to try hard to change!
The tips you shared for making a long conversation where very useful and they work. I’ve made a step forward with the few people i know, we are closer now.
Now that the christmas vacation was over, when I met my friends again I was the most cheerful and talkative one! I also found the fact with amygdala of the brain fascinating. I am looking forward for more information!
High school was a horror show but I managed to graduate, barely. My parents always wondered why I spent so much time "hibernating" in my room. As a teenager and adult I was not able to sit in a fast food restaurant and always ate in my car. I had panic attacks in shopping malls and did not go very often. Luckily I have some artistic skills and found work as a stained glass artist and photographer. I was able to go from job to job based on recommendations and have never formally had a job interview. I did well at work because work meetings were always structured and a specific topic was discussed.
Up until 50 years old I knew something was wrong with me but did not know what it was. I was different from many other people and wondered why I couldn't socialize. At age 50 I took part in a Social Anxiety study that investigated Paxil to relieve the symptoms. Having a name to my pain helped. I joined Toastmasters International and got comfortable speaking in front of audiences. Again, as with work, this was a structured environment. I was giving a speech, not having a social conversation. I met hundreds of Toastmasters but never socialized with any of them outside of Toastmasters. Last year I titrated off the Paxil and started taking improve comedy classes. The people in the class were great and very supportive.
It was about this time that I purchased Sean's Shyness and Social Anxiety Program. It helped a lot. Sean described what I went through very accurately. His section on how to have a conversation was the best part. The improv class started having practice sessions at a members home. At age 63, for the first time in my life, I went to someone's house to meet socially with a group of people. Sean's advice on how to converse worked great!
If you are younger please do not wind up like me. Buy Sean's course and apply what he teaches. I wish his course existed when I was in my 20's. Your social contacts will approve and probably your income. Especially with social networking it is not what you know, it is who you know. I believe, as Sean does, that Social Anxiety can be overcome.
The younger you start to overcome it the better. In my case I had 50 years of conditioning to overcome. Thank you Sean, it is a great comfort that someone else experienced the same symptoms as me, overcame them and created a product to help other people.
As a former shy, "invisible" guy myself, I find something fascinating in what Sean teaches in this program because you can tell he's been through it, he knows personally what it's like to have shyness and social anxiety, and he grasped how to beat it.
The Shyness and Social Anxiety System got me realizing things I wasn't aware of about overcoming shyness. This is probably the finest proof I can give of the quality of this program, considering that I coach shy people almost on a daily basis and I believe I know a thing or two about overcoming shyness.
If you struggle with shyness or social anxiety, coaching is out of your financial range and you're looking for a quality information product to help you make real progress, this is it.
It was definitely not a fun situation to be in, but now looking back I am actually grateful for this dark time in my life.
You see, like pain motivating us to take our hand off of a hot stove, my depression and anxiety motivated me to change important things about my life.
I began to read about psychology and personal development, and I began finding ways that I could change my thoughts and behaviors and truly evolve myself as a person.
But back then "The Shyness and Social Anxiety System" (SSAS) didn't exist. Instead, I had to read a lot of different literature in psychology, personal development, and even some philosophy, until I really started finding my way and getting the "full picture" of my social anxiety.
The truth is - you don't need SSAS to overcome your shyness and social anxiety. But I think it would greatly speed up your progress.
As someone who has read and studied a lot of different systems in psychology and personal development over the past half decade, I can attest that the techniques shared in SSAS work.
Sean Cooper clearly understand the factors that influence our thoughts and behaviors, and how we can change these aspects of ourselves to build a more successful social life.
I’ve always had lots of problems communicating with strangers. My confidence was at a very low level. I always thought what some random people will think about me. I had problems with girls(which I still have, but not as much as before).
When I saw your system, I bought it almost right away. Well my card was in my wallet, and the wallet was lying somewhere in my house, so I took me like 5 minutes to discover it and 3 more minutes to fill the payment form.
Now I’ve made a lot of progress. I stopped caring what others will think, not in every situation of course (like considering running naked down the street).
I became more confident – that’s for sure. I started praising and acknowledging my positive sides and now there’s no trace of doubt that I really have them. Sometimes I wonder if my present view of myself is somehow close to being called arrogant, but then again I realize that I’m too smart, cool and fascinating to be arrogant
I’ve got me a few dates, well they weren’t really successful, but still the fact that I got them was encouraging.
Well, frankly saying it wasn’t only you who contributed to the last one, believe me or not – classic literature also helped me along, but your advices along with your understanding attitude were useful.
I watched my classmates interact with each other. I knew they were constantly in contact with each other studying together, helping each other, and hanging out with each other. I was so hesitant to ask for help myself because I hate looking dumb. I didn’t want anyone to know how much I didn’t understand.
The big thing for me was the friendships I saw among the engineers that formed without me. That hurt. People didn’t send me any messages about when groups were getting together to study.
There was a night that I looked around at the other students working. Everyone was paired up and in groups, collaborating together to figure the homework out. I was trying not to isolate myself.
I waited for someone to come up to me. No one did. My heart felt so heavy. I went to my car and cried. I’ve felt loneliness before, but it’s never hurt like it did that time.
On several times I would be in the cafeteria and see other engineering students sitting in there. I hid from them. I was afraid that if I sat with them, I wouldn’t have anything to say. I would just sit there silently which I was starting to realize is apparently odd to most people. They probably have the wrong impression of me, and now I’m buried under work and painful loneliness. And I did it all to myself.
Your system was the first one that I could completely relate to. I bought it as soon as I heard about it. When you spoke of your past experience with social anxiety, it might as well have been me speaking. It rang true and I couldn’t ignore that. I might have hesitated for a few seconds because I didn’t want to ask my mom for the money and admit that I was struggling. And I didn’t want my dad to know at all. I wasn’t willing to discuss it with him. I’m still not. But I was able to talk to my mom she felt that this system was something that I needed.
I think the system is great. It’s a fast read, the ideas and techniques are actually helpful, and I would recommend it to anyone who is struggling with social anxiety.
The technique that I use the most from your system now is threading. I don’t understand why I had so much trouble talking to the people who are the same major, in all of my classes, who I see all of the time. I just didn’t realize that I really did have plenty to say.
For example, when I was working on a lab with an assigned partner. We slowly, but surely became friends after that. I wanted to show my more lighthearted side. I love to laugh so I didn’t hide it. I began to laugh out loud. Although I still struggle with asking for help and not wanting to look dumb, I got better about saying that I needed help. I feel like that helped people to notice my existence and I felt “okay” with everyone.
I felt like they gave me the opportunity to start over. People talked to me a bit more. I tried to let down the wall a bit and admit when I was having trouble, academically and in a way socially. I have been able to sit with engineers without an invitation and actually talk more than once. I’m not a chatter box towards them, but it’s progress. I know it will take some time for people to alter their mindset about me and suddenly let me in when I was the one who avoided them for so many years.
I’m in the last semester of my senior year. I don’t feel like I have the time left to develop the friendships I want with my entire class. That is something that I regret. But I do get asked to hang out every once in awhile with some of the engineers. I do get asked to work on assignments with the one guy I was assigned to be partnered with on a lab that I talked about earlier.
Considering where I started, I think I’m doing well. Now my biggest thing is wishing that it had never happened in the first place because I am aware of how much I missed out on. But I am glad and thankful to be where I am and to be getting better slowly.
I did make a couple of friends but I felt like they were only using me and taking advantage of me, like for homework and stuff. I was so shy to the point where I became depressed. It was hard for me to have any kind of relationship with anybody, even my family, and I couldn’t take it anymore.
It’s so much better now, like I don’t know how much to thank you. Moving on to a newer school, I made new friends and they all love me for who I am. I talk a lot more now and even my family noticed and are happier with me.
My new friends still tell me I’m shy but like a talkative shy person, lol. I’m less nervous and anxious around people and I’ve built some self esteem. I’m not depressed anymore, I’m happy and I’m glad I found your information.
This program is completely NEW and DIFFERENT than anything else out there.
It's designed to take you from being shy, quiet, nervous and awkward in conversations... and make you more confident, outgoing and talkative.

You never risk anything by purchasing because I offer a 60 day money back guarantee. If you're not satisfied for any reason, simply email me and I'll refund your money no questions asked.
If you're still undecided about investing in this program, then consider this...
The definition of "insanity" is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.
If you want to be different, then you need to think a different way. You need to act a different way. You need to BELIEVE a different way.
If you don't learn a NEW and DIFFERENT approach to conversation and social skills... then you'll stay the exact same. It's as simple as that.
So make your decision now, and I'll see you in a few days...
