One of the most common social skills questions I get is:
"How do I start a conversation?!"
It's not rocket science, but it's about as terrifying as being strapped to a rocket.
To answer this question, I brought in an expert: the magnetic Felicia of Instantly Irresistible.
She's the real deal, and she created a video on how to conquer your inner fears and start a conversation with anyone.
I remember after reading Neil Strauss’s famous book, The Game, I was fascinated by this idea of ‘approach anxiety’.
It’s typically what a lot of men feel as they are about to approach women -- a tightness in their chest, sweating, and of course, the prominent fear of being rejected.
But what I realized is that ‘approach anxiety’ is not limited to just men. Women feel it, too! And even I experience it myself--and this is what I help people with for a living. When I’m at an event and see a stranger I want to start talking to, my heart starts beating faster, I become self-conscious, and I start to think: “What am I going to SAY?”
