Video – on being an introvert in an extraverted world

At the book launch of “From Wallflower to Sunflower” I spoke about my motivation for writing the book, in relation to being an introvert in a world that’s set up for extroverts to succeed.

If you’re an introvert, or have a strong introverted side, do you do you feel pressurised to be different from the way you are?

You don’t seem to quite fit in with the way the world is.

“Introverts are most commonly not recognised for their gifts and talents or seen for who they REALLY are.”

They may fail to get short listed or headhunted for jobs they are eminently suited for.  They may be brilliant on paper but find it difficult to communicate this brilliance verbally or when under pressure.

And if you are not sure if you are an introvert do “The Gifted Introvert Test” and see if you qualify.

If this is your story you may concluded that you’re not confident enough, that you need to get much better at XYZ, or you’ve resigned yourself to the fact that people like you just can’t seem to break through the glass ceiling no matter how good you get.

And yet as a group introverts are more likely to have exceptional intelligence. According to some research 75% of people with an IQ above 160 are introverts.

In other words some of the world’s most brilliant people are introverts. They excel in design, sciences, engineering and computer sciences. They make wonderful therapists, healers, writers, and intuitives.

It seems grossly unfair that introverts are as a group mostly languishing on the sidelines, that their gifts and talents are not being seen or valued by the people who most matter and they are not getting paid what they’re worth.

Discover how you can turn all this on you head and find true freedom as an introvert.

The book tells my story of how I moved from wallflower to confident person in a relatively short amount of time.

It is highly practical, grounded in psychology and scientific research and offers a step-by-step guide with proven strategies, practical tips, exercises and free online resources.

My courses have helped hundreds of introverted people acquire the skills that many extroverts naturally have – and as a result make radical changes in their lives and their prospects through the Sunflower Effect – the confidence building system I have developed.

Reading the book will enable you to get more out of my courses because you will understand more about how the Sunflower Effect works.

You will also be able to download the free bonuses to support you on your journey through the course and afterwards.

The book has been highly praised and received 5 star reviews on Amazon. You can unsubscribe anytime.

The Breakthrough Group is the first step for many people – particularly if you feel shy, self-conscious or experience social anxiety. I’ve seen some miraculous transformations in my 20 years of running this course.

My next courses next start:
Wed 23rd Sept @ 7.45pm  and Tues 29th Sept   @5.30pm

Or, if speaking up in groups, being heard, or any kind of public speaking is your challenge, then the  Finding Your Voice course is a good place to start. Particularly if anxiety or nerves are an issue. I’ve had people with very severe symptoms including panic attacks, overcome these issues with relative ease.

My next courses start:
Thurs 24th Sept@ 7.45pm  and 1st Oct @5.30pm

“I don’t know what to say” improvisation for social confidencei s great for people with average confidence who experience some form of social anxiety or awkwardness but find themselves stumped with knowing what to say. Working through improvisation and will transform your verbal confidence and social skills.
