Being social should be Fun ... Here's how

Socializing sucks. You don’t know what to say or how to behave. Anxiety is through the roof. Everybody is looking at you like a weirdo.

It doesn’t have to be that way. Being social should be easy and fun.

This proven framework teaches you what you’re missing.

See this goofy guy?

Yeah, the one in the white shirt who looks like a hobo about to ask you for some crack money. Take a good look at him.

That was me in high school.

I was obsessed with becoming liked, respected, and accepted by people around me. Instead, I was that weird guy who would draw cartoons in the back of the class, talk about things nobody cared about, and look creepy in social gatherings.

Don’t believe me? Here’s another example:

I didn’t even know how to play the guitar. I just thought it would make me look cool and impress people when I post it on Facebook.

(Spoiler alert: it didn’t.)

The worst part is that I couldn’t figure out what I was doing wrong. Here I was, just as “normal” as everybody else, yet I had so much trouble talking to people without feeling like I’m diffusing a bomb.

I had no self-esteem, no confidence, and worst of all… no idea how to improve myself. This made me feel depressed and angry with the world.

Sounds familiar?

If it's so easy, why can't I do it?

At one point, I said “enough is enough”. I wiped my tears of and deciding that I’m going to change. I’m going to become the biggest, baddest motherfucker on the planet and everybody is going to be sorry they ever made fun of me.

So what I did was… uhm… go on Google and type in:

  • “how to become popular”
  • “how to make people like you”
  • “how to talk to girls”

As you can guess, I wasn’t off to a badass start.

Even worse, this led me to a lot of bad advice. From self-help gurus to pickup artists, everybody claimed to have “the magic formula” or “the golden technique” that will solve all of my problems.

I tried everything I could. Some things worked, most didn’t. After almost two years of following other people’s advice, I was pretty much the same person. 

Insecure. Unsocial. Unhappy.

The #1 problem stopping you from being social

(It's not what you think)

It took me a long time to realize something. And that “something” changed the way I think about socializing forever.

Think about it… what does all social advice focus on?

  • “Do this”
  • “Say that”
  • “Stand here”
  • “Look there”

Everybody is telling you exactly what to do, say and how to behave. And I get it, those are exactly the things you don’t know. But all of this advice comes with a major underlying problem.

It doesn’t matter!

Focusing on every single aspect of the way you talk, move or behave is the opposite of making it easy. It’s making it hard in a whole different sense.

Not only that, deep inside you still feel anxious. Saying some magic words or standing at a certain angle doesn’t solve your core issues.

When I say socializing should be FUN and EASY — I mean it!

It’s not about learning tactics or pretending to be someone you’re not. It’s about dealing with what is making you anxious in the first place.

Imagine if you could just go out with people and NOT worry about what they think of you, whether they like you, or what you should say. Imagine NOT having to remember tactics or fake being confident.

Imagine if you could just… be yourself. And be okay with it.

That is exactly the reason I made The Social Gladiator. It’s a framework for dealing with your social anxiety and learning how to feel relaxed and comfortable in social situations.

I’m not claiming it’s a magic formula. But here is how it helped me:

Drinks with friends in Zagreb
How I Met Your Mother pub in New York
Dinner with new roommates in Bali

The Social Gladiator teaches you how to understand your insecurity and anxiety, what you can do about it, and how to improve your social skills without losing who you are.

This framework is based on:

  • Psychological research on socializing, anxiety and relationships.
  • Years of trial-and-error.
  • Real-life personal exprience.

In others words: Backed by science, tested in the real world, and explained in terms you will understand.

A little about me

Hi, I'm Phil Janecic

I founded Mind of Steel in 2014 to help people become the strongest version of themselves. My work has reached hundreds of thousands people since.

My approach is direct and sometimes harsh, because I value honesty above everything else. Sometimes, you need to let go of old ideas to make ways for new ones.

What others say

Mind of Steel helped me became tougher while staying a good person. I’m naturally a “nice guy” and never asserted myself, so people often took advantage of me. Now, I am still a nice guy, but stand up for myself, enforce my boundaries, and I am not afraid to speak up.

Phil is all about the "let’s get real" approach. His methods force you to stop making excuses and take responsibility for your own life, no matter how painful or embarrassing that may be. I had no idea I would get tips and methods I would keep coming back to.

Phil's approach can help you conquer anything. No BS, no dancing around the point, just honest and direct advice that really works. Most importantly, Phil is always available when you need help, you can see the guy genuinely cares a lot.

Be honest, how far has googling gotten you so far?

You’ve already tried searching for answers. You went through blogs, articles, podcasts and videos of all kind.

Did they work? Or are you still clueless about what to do next? 

You don’t need a thousand random ideas and tips, you need a structured plan you can start using immediately.
