For most of my life I dealt with severe social anxiety and low self-esteem, so what I have to share with you in this short guide comes from a whole lot of personal experience. While I cannot possibly offer everything there is to know about overcoming these internal issues, I can simplify everything down into some practical steps that can take you far if you just keep them in your mind and heart as you go through your life.
What I've found on my journey is that simplicity is key. There is a tendency to believe that since our problems have been with us for so long, the solution to them must be complex and/or difficult to implement. From my own experience, I can confidently say that the real reason we have not been able to find a solution to our problems is because the solutions are so simple that we completely overlook them. Just because something sounds simple does not mean it is not effective. Keep that in mind as you read the rest of this guide.
