Are You Being Held Captive By Your Anxiety And Insecurities? Learn The Techniques To Say ‘Screw The Fear’ And Then Do It Anyway
Stop Letting Your Fears Sabotage The Most Important Moments Of Your Life – Start Taking Control Now
I sat there, staring at the empty computer screen, cursor blinking. It had been three days. Not a single email had been written. Not a single web page had been posted.
It was 2008 and my new consulting business was in shambles. I needed a new client. Like, now. Rent was due in two weeks. I barely had enough money for food.
I should have been working like a madman.
But instead, I sat there, sitting, staring at the cursor, blinking on, blinking off.
Should I email some prospects and try to get them on the phone for a sales call? Should I try to network and get myself invited to an event? Should I touch base with my past clients and see if they needed anything else?
The stress mounted. My vision blurred. I opened up the ‘Applications’ menu on my cheap, old used computer and pulled up another video game – my regular choice of escape – and began playing.
And every second I played that game, I hated the fact that I was playing it. I hated myself for playing it. For avoiding what was necessary. For avoiding the person I wanted to be but felt incapable of being.
Yet I kept playing and playing.
How To Stop Running Away From Your Insecurities and Finally Face Them
For years, my life was driven by fear. All of my actions were based on avoidance, procrastination, and insecurity.
Later on, when I finally did get that consulting business up and running, I noticed the same patterns among my clients. Tons of people:
Were terrified to get out of the house more and put themselves in social situations to make new friends.
Wanted to advance their career or start a business but were afraid to take the first necessary risks.
Were anxious around people they were attracted to, unable to speak or show interest.
After working for years with thousands of clients, I discovered a funny trick that, once a person did it, their fears and anxieties would suddenly seem manageable and even easy to overcome.
The trick is simple. Anyone can do it. And it only takes a few moments.
In fact, it was so simple and so obvious that people would often look at me and say, “Wow, that was it? That’s all it takes?”
And that’s the funny thing: just because anxiety feels hard, we convince ourselves that overcoming it must be hard and complicated.
But the key to overcoming your anxiety is actually rather simple. And once you know how, the difficulty becomes much more manageable.
That’s why I’ve put together an online interactive course to help people like you conquer their anxiety once and for all.
It’s a simple step-by-step course that guides you through a series of simple exercises you can do to attack whatever issue is holding you back at the moment.
Each exercise is based on decades of psychological research and is backed up with years of coaching experience.
The course is also interactive, so if you get stuck or feel that your anxiety is particularly unique or you have a special circumstance, you can seek advice from me or other users who have been through similar situations.
When You Sign Up For The ‘Overcome Anxiety Course’ You Will Also Learn:
The root cause of our fears and anxieties and why it’s so hard for us to act despite them. (Hint: it has something to do with biology and reptiles.)
The most common “solution” for anxiety that DOESN’T work and why. (Hint: You’ve probably tried it before. and failed.)
4 lies we tell ourselves whenever we’re afraid to do something – how to spot them and get rid of them.
The ONLY foolproof method to get you over your fears, backed by decades of psychological research (You’d likely pay a therapist thousands of dollars for this alone.)
The simple psychological trick to act despite your fear so you can tackle whatever is holding you back.
What the subtle difference between confidence and insecurity is and how to achieve it.
How myself and hundreds of other users also used these tools to conquer our fears and how you can learn from our experiences.
And much more.
The Overcome Anxiety Course is a series of videos lessons. Each video presents a concept or idea, and then at the end of the video, you are given an exercise to carry out.
These exercises are often interactive, requiring you to go out into the world and try something, or to communicate with other members of the course and analyze each other’s thought patterns and behaviors.
Once you complete an exercise, you write up what you learned and submit it, then you move on to the next lesson. By the end of the course, once you’ve completed all of the lessons, you should have made significant progress battling against whatever anxiety is holding you back.
The course can also be repeated. So going through it once may get you 50% of the way there. But going through it twice will get you 90% of the way there.
You can also go back and reuse it on different anxieties. Because if you’re like me, you’ve got more insecurities than you know what to do with!
“The biggest benefit was the rapid elimination of fear and anxiety, by way of the simple exercises. The tasks not only helped me internalize the principles, they also enabled me to reduce fear.”

“It is a really awesome course mate. I love that it is authentic and simple. Very powerful stuff. Thanks.”

Included: Dozens of Hours of Bonus Seminars and Interviews
This is where I put on my Billy Mays mask and say, “But wait, there’s more!”
Because there is more, bitch!
Every course member also gets private access to my own little Ft. Knox of recorded seminars, interviews, podcasts, and old articles and audio. It’s all available to download, more than 40 files in all, and it’s all free with your course membership.
I’m also regularly updating the stash with new interviews and Q&A videos that I record exclusively for course members.
Don’t ever say I didn’t love you.
“Excellent idea, and effective. The progressive desensitization approach is very intelligent, and one I wish to use in all areas of life. Thanks!”

A Community Full of Feedback And Support
As a course member, you get access to a private forum where you can discuss life problems, major life decisions, nerdy self-improvement topics, and solicit people for advice.
The forum is stocked with hundreds of users going through similar struggles as your own, as well as a small group of qualified experts there to give people personalized advice.
“I have been becoming much more open and vulnerable lately due to the fact that I just feel way more relaxed when I talk to people and get the ball rolling. It’s made all the difference. I used to be very neurotic and guarded around people. Now I feel ‘normal’ for the first time ever.”
