Imagine If You Were a More Extroverted, Confident, and Influential Version of Yourself...

Imagine being energized by social situations, not exhausted…

Imagine commanding—and enjoying—the attention of others…

Imagine looking forward to making new personal and professional connections…

Imagine people looking up to you and seeking your opinion…

Just imagine how much your life would change.

If those scenarios appeal to you, I have good news: You don’t have to imagine any of them anymore because I can help you turn them into reality.

But first, let me introduce myself...

But first, let me introduce myself…

Hey there. My name is Jonathan.

That’s me over there, doing what I do best: engaging with others.

(A friend of mine jokingly told me that my death certificate is going to list my cause of death as “excessive talking.” I can’t really argue with her prediction.)

I wasn’t always great at engaging with others, though—far from it, actually.

You wouldn't know it now, but... I used to be an introvert.

You wouldn’t know it now, but…

I used to be an introvert.

Growing up, I was both an introvert and shy. (Introversion and shyness are not the same thing, but a good chunk of introverts—and some extroverts—are also shy, in varying degrees and in different ways.)

Social situations were both exhausting and scary, plus I found that my inner world was far more interesting than what the outside world could offer.

Unlike the rest of my (very extroverted) family, I often spent my free time pursuing solitary activities. I loved to get lost in my thoughts and my favorite hobbies while ignoring the outside world as much as possible. My parents always knew they could leave me alone because I had no problem occupying myself for hours.

I was also a sensitive child, always absorbing the emotions of everyone around me. I hated loud noises and was happiest when I could retreat to a quiet place.

Introvert? Definitely.

Shy? Yep.

Sensitive? You bet.

For a while, I was perfectly okay with how I functioned and couldn’t imagine it any other way.

But then things started to change.

But then things started to change.

As I reached my teenage years, something inside me shifted. Despite feeling like my personality was set in stone, I started to want to change it. It wasn’t teen angst; I simply wanted something much different than the shy and introverted personality that I had at the time. In addition to an internal desire to change, I recognized that extroverts were far too often able to attain what was beyond my grasp. I didn’t feel jealous of extroverts, but I simply felt that I had it within me to attain the same benefits that they enjoyed.

At age 20, I decided to set out on a journey that would change my life forever: a journey to become a more extroverted, confident, and influential version of myself.

Some people might say that I should have just “accepted myself” and “played to my strengths,” but that wasn’t what I wanted. I wanted to change my personality, not accept it.

Although it wasn’t a change I could simply manifest with a wish and a snap of my fingers, I would go through the process a thousand times over to be the person I am today. Throughout my personality change journey, I was fueled by the idea that I could push the limits of the introvert-extrovert divide and craft the personality that I desired. I stubbornly refused to believe that my introvert personality, crafted by nature and nurture for the first two decades of my life, was immutable.

As it turned out, my stubbornness paid off.

I have become the extroverted, confident, and influential person I wanted to be—and now I would like to share my knowledge with you.

I have become the extroverted, confident, and influential person I wanted to be—and now I would like to share my knowledge with you.

But first, let’s clear the air about a few things.

You may have heard that you should just “accept who you are.”

If you have been paying attention to blogs and social media the last few years, you may have noticed that introversion has reached an almost cult-like status. With online news headlines like Caring For Your Introvert, 9 Reasons You Might Be an Introvert, and The Advantages of Being an Introvert, it’s almost trendy to be an introvert these days.

The problem is all of this digital buzz doesn’t account for the reality of our extrovert-driven society.

No matter how many likes and tweets a “pro-introvert” article gets, we still live in a society that often encourages and rewards extroverted behavior. Period. Is it fair? Not really, but it’s reality… and it’s not changing any time soon.

With that in mind, should you just “accept who you are” like the pro-introvert movement of the last few years tells you to?

Here’s my answer:

If being an introvert makes you completely happy in every way, then of course you should accept being an introvert.

But, if being an introvert doesn’t make you happy in every way… then I am here to show you that you don’t have to “accept who you are.”

Studies have shown that personality can and does change.

It used to be believed that we were pretty much stuck with the exact personality we had in childhood—a pretty depressing idea, if you ask me.

Thankfully, in the last few years, not only have researchers discovered that personality change can and does happen throughout adulthood, they have found that positive personality changes can be beneficial to our well-being.

Unfortunately, too often these days people believe their personality is fixed and unchangeable. They blame their genes and insist they were born that way. To that end, they put themselves in situations that match their personality and flee from those that don’t. They strive for comfort, not curiosity.

The end result? They rob themselves of some of the best opportunities for growth in their life.

It’s time to stop believing that your personality is fixed and unchangeable and start taking steps toward becoming the person you want to be.

Becoming more extroverted doesn’t mean that you have to be an extrovert.

Although many people think of “introvert” and “extrovert” as two entirely separate, dichotomous personality types, that’s just not reality. The truth is that they exist on a continuum with introversion on one end and extroversion on the other. To make it easier to understand, people closer to the extroversion end are labeled “extroverts” and the people closer to the introversion end are labeled “introverts.”

Some introverts, when they hear the concept of “becoming more extroverted,” think they’re going to have to eliminate every introvert trait they have and become an entirely different person. I assure you that is not the case. I will give you the tools, but you are entirely in control of how far you go on your journey. You can build your extroverted side and move yourself closer to the extroversion end of the continuum without moving yourself into full-blown extrovert territory.

(As for me, I chose to take my personality change journey pretty far. While I’m capable of tapping into my introverted side, I’m not drawn to it. I’ll teach you what I know, but just know that you don’t have to be just like me.)

Bottom line: this is your journey and you should treat it as such.

Now that we've cleared the air, it's time to face a few harsh truths: Studies have shown that extroverts have more career opportunities, make more money, and feel happier than introverts.

Now that we’ve cleared the air, it’s time to face a few harsh truths:

Studies have shown that extroverts have more career opportunities, make more money, and feel happier than introverts.

Let’s face it: life in our extrovert-driven society can just be plain tough for introverts. I know it and you know it. Even the most amazing introverts out there can find themselves struggling and left in the dust at times in a society that exalts the outgoing, assertive, energetic extrovert.

As an introvert…

It’s normal to feel worn out after speaking with others, especially in group situations or in situations that require you to engage in small talk.

It’s normal to struggle with finding the right words or the best way to express your opinion verbally.

It’s normal to feel blindsided by those people who seem to overtake conversations by speaking louder.

It’s normal to feel frustrated when people barely glance up from their phones to hear what you have to say.

It’s normal to feel like you need to retreat to a quiet place for “alone time” after being in a social situation.

But who wants to be normal?

I certainly didn’t—I believed I was capable of so much more than “normal.”

When I was an introvert, I struggled and was left in the dust plenty of times. I often felt like people didn’t listen to me and that situations were out of my control. I longed to be not just more extroverted, but also more confident and influential. I wanted to gain energy from social situations, be assertive, and have others listen to me and respect me.

I’m happy to say that I have achieved all that and more. I’m also happy to say that I believe that every introvert—if they desire to do so—also has the ability to achieve all that and more with the material I am about to introduce to you.

Although I didn’t realize it at the time, during my journey I was developing a program to become a more extroverted, confident, and influential version of myself.

And now, it’s finally time to share my knowledge with you.

FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

CHANGE SCARES ME. IS THE COURSE RIGHT FOR ME?

You’re not alone. Change can be scary for anyone. Here’s my answer to your question:

If you’re afraid of change but are willing to work through that fear to make progress, then the course is definitely right for you.

If you’re afraid of change but aren’t willing to work through that fear to make progress, then the course is not right for you.

This course asks you to push outside your comfort zone. If you’re not willing to go outside your comfort zone, you will be disappointed with your results.

I SUFFER FROM ANXIETY, DEPRESSION, OR ANOTHER MENTAL HEALTH CONDITION. IS THE COURSE RIGHT FOR ME?

I am not a doctor, psychologist, psychiatrist, therapist, or any other medical professional, so I cannot advise you regarding any condition you may have. What is right for your condition is between you and any medical professional you are seeing.

Bottom line: If you are currently being treated for anxiety, depression, or another mental health condition, or feel that you should be, Introvert to Influential Extrovert may not be right for your life.

DO YOU GUARANTEE RESULTS?

This course teaches you how to adopt new habits, learn new skills, and start thinking about things and behaving in a different way. While I consider those actions that can help bring about a personality (defined as patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving) change over time, that’s up for you to decide. The course is based on my experience only and no results are guaranteed. You are solely responsible for your results.

HOW OFTEN ARE THE Q&A SESSIONS?

The Q&A sessions (available to purchasers of all packages) typically occur once a month, but sometimes I will add a second session if a lot of questions have been submitted that month or if I would like to focus on a particular topic.

You will be given information about how to submit a question in the private member’s area.

IF I CHOOSE A PACKAGE WITH ONE-ON-ONE COACHING, HOW DO I SET IT UP?

You will receive more information about this after your purchase. I look forward to working with you!

IF I HAVE OTHER QUESTIONS, WHO DO I CONTACT?

If your question isn’t answered here, shoot me an email at contact@influentialextrovert.com.

Do you really want to wake up a year from now in the exact same place you are today?

I am offering you the tools to completely transform your life, but they will only work if you are willing to seize the opportunity. There is nothing to be gained by waiting another hour, another day, another month, another year. You have waited too long—now is the time to do the right thing for yourself and your life. The right time is right now.
