My Name Is Dalton K. Finney. I Used To Be Painfully Shy & Awkward.
I was painfully shy for most of my life. I was uncomfortable being around people (including my family) and panic attacks were a constant part of my life.
I always knew my shyness was a problem and would tell friends, family, and therapists about it. They’d tell me, “Oh, Dalton, you’ll grow out of it. Good things come to those who wait.”
“Bullshit”, I thought. “Good things come to those who work.”
I was 19, a sophomore in college. I was fed up with my stuttering, having panic attacks, being unable to chat up a cute girl at a party, having next-to-no friends, and sweating bullets every time I had to give a class presentation.
I wasn’t going to let my shyness run my life anymore.
I dove head first into every remotely applicable self-improvement practice so I could finally beat my shyness:
- I took jobs as a bartender and waiter to help me with my conversation skills.
- I took improv acting classes, sales training programs, and joined Toastmasters.
- I meditated and went to therapy.
- I’d spend entire days talking to strangers.
- I took countless self-improvement workshops.
- I read every damn book, bought every freakin’ CD series, and bowed at the helm of every self-proclaimed ‘guru’.
NakedCharisma.com is the sum total of my 14 years of experience from transforming my shyness & social anxiety into confidence and social ease.
