Brett’s Story

“I’m not afraid to talk to my bosses anymore.”

Sales Representative, 27

Why did you decide to try Joyable?

It started getting scary. I was confused, I was bummed out, I honestly couldn’t really explain what was going on. I felt like I was running out of options. I really didn’t want to get on medicine. I was starting to get really scared.

I thought I would lose friends, lose my job, and end up being secluded. I had tried talk therapy. It wasn’t getting me anywhere.

I wanted to do something structured. I wanted to give something a shot before resorting to medication.

Why did you decide to get help?

I always tried to do things on my own. I decided to get help because I was out of options. It was almost debilitating. I couldn’t really do anything. Having a conversation with people was exhausting. I was exhausted everyday by being so overcome by anxiety, my feelings, you name it.

Overall, I wanted answers. I wanted a program or assistance to help me figure out what was going on and give me tools for the future and help me get through it without prescription drugs.

I was exhausted everyday by being so overcome by anxiety, my feelings, you name it.

What was your biggest fear before starting the Joyable program?

What if this doesn’t work? What if I don’t get it? What if I’m one of the people this doesn’t work on? I couldn’t imagine what it would be like if this didn’t work.

My biggest fear was that it wouldn’t work. I stumbled upon the program and took it as a sign.

How did we overcome that fear?

Practice. Repetitiveness. Especially with my coach and the program. He kept hammering things into me. You do the activities. You log everything. You go back to the content. You go back to everything you need. You’re constantly being reminded of the steps.

It really hammers into you by being repetitive and I think that’s a good thing. My coach kept reminding me. He pushed me if my answers were too basic — he made me elaborate. That really helped me in the long run.

Any concerns I had about that, they worked themselves out over time.

Each time I succeeded, I realized that I can beat social anxiety.

How has your life changed since you began the Joyable program?

My life has turned around 180 degrees since starting Joyable. I have gotten a raise and I’m on track to get a promotion soon (moving into a larger sales territory).

I’m not afraid to talk to my bosses and I’m not afraid to talk to strangers. I’ve got confidence back again. It’s completely changed me. My energy levels are higher. I’m not drained every day. I’m confident. Confidence is huge in my line of work.

I honestly have seen a complete change from the first day I started Joyable. It’s amazing. I absolutely love it. I feel so much better.

What was the best part of the Joyable program?

Definitely the activities. Setting a goal. Going through. Facing your fears, working your way up to the highest level of anxiety. Taking baby steps. I wish there were more activities. They were becoming so much fun, because I would really, really challenge myself. By far the best part was challenging myself.

Each time I succeeded, I realized that I can beat social anxiety. You realize that it’s things in your head and there are tools that can help you through. You really learn that maybe on the outside, it’s not as bad as it seems on the inside. I’m better than that.

A big part is that he said, “text me anytime, call me anytime.”

Tell us about your Joyable coach.

I think the coaching was one of the best parts. Probably one of the most important parts of the program. It was hard for me to stay motivated. But my coach was always on me. It reminded me why I started this program. Having an involved coach is a huge part of this program. It was my coach a lot of times that kept pushing me to challenge myself.

A big part is that he said, “text me anytime, call me anytime.” Knowing that if I had any issues, I could reach out. He was an excellent guide throughout this.

Sometimes I would get busy and brush things off. Not to mention any random questions I would have, I knew he was there to answer them as well. He was amazing, honestly.

If you were to recommend Joyable to your best friend with social anxiety, what would you say?

Yes. I would recommend Joyable 100%. Honestly, I wish I knew more people with social anxiety and that people were more open about it. You have to try it. Look where I am now.

I’d tell them it’s an amazing program. It worked for me. You just have to give it a chance and actually work on it. I think you’d be pretty happy.

Is there anything you’d like to add?

My life is totally different. It was getting really bad. It came to a point where that’s all I’d think about all day. How stupid I feel. How hard it would be to talk to people. It ruins everything. It was getting really terrible. It started affecting work. When it started affecting family, that was the last straw. I should be able to talk to my mom and dad. I should be able to make eye contact with them and not feel like an awkward weirdo.

Now, I’m extremely happy. I think the program helped me outstandingly. My career is sales. I was killing it when I started. All of a sudden, this anxiety picked up. It’s a huge part of what I love doing. I love being out there, talking to customers. Now I can be myself. I can tell things are better. Relationships with friends, co-workers, customers, etc.

Getting educated about social anxiety is one of the biggest perks. Knowing what’s going on and what you’re dealing with. Before, not knowing made it even worse. And it was scary.

I feel great. I couldn’t be happier and more grateful that I found my coach and the program. It’s been such a positive in my life. I hope I can use some of these skills for the rest of my life.
