I was never an outgoing person. In college I always hid somewhere in the corner or at the back of the classroom. I found it very difficult to have a presentation in front of the class. I got anxious, my face got red, and my hands got sweaty. After college I had to find a job and I couldn’t get any. I got invited to the interview a few times but I always blew it because I was anxious and couldn’t really express my thoughts.
At least my family stood by my side and my father suggested that I should seek for help. He said that cognitive behavioral therapy might help me, so I googled for more information. Then somehow I came across this book. I wasn’t sure if this book could help me. I was afraid that the book won’t cover my problems specifically, but I really didn’t have much options.
I could either do nothing about my anxiety, or I could try to overcome it. I really had nothing to lose. Even if the program didn’t work, I would still have done something about my anxiety. So I bought the book and followed it to the end. I’m really grateful for all the information I got. It has helped me immensely. I analyzed my fear of job interviews and found the way to overcome it. After that I had two more job interviews and I got the job on the second one. Thanks, Andre!
