Episode 611: How to Overcome Social Anxiety - Part 2 by Ramit Sethi (Developing Habits & Personal Growth).

Ramit wants to use money to say YES. He knew there was a better way to live a rich life—if we could use psychology to focus on what actually works. Not just for personal finance, but all aspects of life: money, careers, relationships, business, fitness, and more. Since then, he's been testing and sharing his findings with the world via I Will Teach You To Be Rich. He's also written a New York Times bestselling book, been profiled in a 6-page Fortune article, and been pictured next to Warren Buffett in Forbes Magazine, as well as been featured by a long list of media, including the Wall Street Journal, ABC News, NPR, Fox Business, PBS, CNBC, and more. He also has tons of documented success stories—more than 20,000.

most of the tonight show and regularly talk to the world's biggest celebrities jimmy fallon was just as court as you or me check out his honest day for us an owl if you don't believe me now he's charismatic enough to convince people i john siena two dead left him that's why some porn or practice and flexor social muscles as much as you possibly can one of my favorite ways to do that is by turning social interactions into a game after all social interactions should be fun non nerve writing is i've thinking oh my god what is the technical thing i should be doing but still how should i smile what do i do with my hands frame it like a fawn game to facilitate here a few my favorite social games i recommend you use to practice your social skills the sixty seconds rule this one is very simple within sixty seconds of arriving at an event party coffee shop or anywhere else you need a walk to someone and say hello that's all later he might decide
abusing hello and use different phrase like the ones a little bit awesome that's all up to you but do it within sixty seconds is a good time limit because it pressures you to talk to someone before your social anxiety gets the best of you the compliments game give three observations compliments in twenty four hours daughters call your mom give her compliments and take your done either in needs to be three unique compliments to three different people and my seemed on first but he'll get easier to find compliments ass soon ass he started i really your sweater while the coffee you may take great you're such an adventurous person i love it remember careful not to accidentally dole out back handed compliment the phone game i love this one b is so easy you see someone you your phone or reading a book just walk up to them and ask what kind of phone is that of an give us wishing for a long time or what book are you reading
you for something good do that three times in twenty four hours you'd be surprised at the awesome converse genes as was awesome recommendations you'll have star conversation without anxiety using these groups when you starting out learning social skills you might fall into the trap of obsessing over the perfect opener the vital though there is no such thing especially when you consider the fact of the contest the situation will vary a lot from conversation a conversation he d where you are who you are talking to what the weather is etc but there are few that will work in most any situation where you're media new person i want to show you three right now that you can use a ninety percent of all social situations to get started do yourself to people spoiler their incredibly simple but that's the point just the way to connect and build report dont over think just do eventually you'll be able to set these scripts aside and make up your own the scripts are
number one i how's your morning going number two i don't think we ve met i'm meet number three good morning how are you remember the value in these groups is not in their novelty but in there turkey you can use these immediately and i think i'll be surprised at the positive hans you'll get from others around you as it is ninety nine point ninety nine percent of people you see on the street have their nose buried in their phones other headphones on while zoning out from the entire world around them when you set yourself apart people were will respond to that though the three scripts above work for most situations on until your opening to whoever it is you're talking to especially if their service workers consider asking one of these questions for those situations barristers await staff number one what's your favorite thing on the menu why number two was the creasy think someone tried order this week number three have ever
somebody's name wrong on purpose because you didn't like them check out clerks number one you don't get a discount as an employee do you number two so picks up a tabloid who buys these things seriously how they have ever seen anyone actually buy one male person are you piazza fedex or amazon number one was the weirdest thing you ever had a deliver number two you can basically part anywhere if you're driving that truck right pause engaged reaction have you ever gonna parking ticket knows them the questions are jockey and light hearted they given easy a bill and report fun conversation along the way remember treat it like a game c o the other person reacts and build off of that illegally i am not talking to someone you dont know can be an incredibly fun experience you just wasn't part two of the post titled
