Description

     There's a technique I'm going to share with you that can be used to quickly regain control of your thoughts and stop feeling afraid, and it's the key to establishing long-lasting change and breaking free from the "Fear Cycle" forever.

     This simple technique is the reason some people are able to conquer their anxiety struggles once and for all while others remain stuck for years, repeating the same devastating anxiety mistake over and over and over again...

     And this technique explains why even people who try so hard to get better remain stuck, despite trying every traditional treatment method.

     This technique keeps you from making the same anxiety mistake over, and over, and over again...

     It's called the "R.A.I.N. Switch Technique"


     Hi, I'm Steve Pavilanis, and I'm a former anxiety sufferer and the award-winning author of the book A Life Less Anxious.

     You're about to discover the real secret behind this ground-breaking technique and why it works for all types of anxieties.

     Once you learn this technique, you will have complete confidence in yourself in ANY situation when you start to feel anxious.

     You'll finally understand WHY you kept falling into the same devastating anxiety mistake, and how simple it is to break free from it.

      And you will feel relieved and inspired, because you know this is going to work for you and that long-lasting freedom is right around the corner.

     When you finally understand how to find the "off-switch" for your scary thoughts, that's when you'll experience true freedom in your life!

     The R.A.I.N. Switch Technique breaks the cycle.

     You'll charge off into the world filled with confidence, knowing that having another panic simply isn't possible... because you know too much.   You know the technique.

     And you'll feel adventurous and alive again, knowing that fear will never again stop you from living the life you've always dreamed of :-)


     Here's how this simple yet powerful technique can quickly change your life, no matter what type of anxiety you suffer from:


     Conquer Your Worst Social Fears

     The root cause of most social fears is the fear of humiliating yourself in front of others, resulting in feeling rejected or as if you "don't belong".

     When you know you can go into situations that make you anxious (such as driving) and stop the scary thoughts and panic from ever happening, your fear of these situations will disappear as your confidence and belief in yourself grows stronger than ever.

You'll feel so proud of yourself because you'll know you've defeated these fears forever.


     Stop Obsessive "What-If?" Thoughts

     Maybe you don't suffer from panic attacks, but your mind seems to constantly be filled with anxious "what-if?" thoughts that never seem to stop coming at you.

     One of the most amazing things about the R.A.I.N. Switch Technique is that it's like finding the "off-switch" for your worried thoughts.

     When you know how to use the technique, you can literally turn off these thoughts in less than 14 seconds - because you know exactly how to take their power away.

You'll feel confident and in complete control, knowing that you can "turn-off" those unhealthy thoughts and feel better in just a matter of seconds - anytime, any place and in any situation.

     

Overcome Low-Level Anxiety That's Always There

     Perhaps you don't suffer from panic attacks, but still feel a low-level of anxiety and unease that's always there.

     While not as severe as dealing with panic attacks, there are still fears lingering in your mind that are fueling your worries. This technique teaches you how to deal with those unhealthy fears and make them disappear almost instantly.

You'll start to catch yourself feeling calm and in control throughout your day and wonder, "Wait, why don't I feel anxious?" - But you'll get used to it :-)

     

Stop Panic Attacks (Before They Start)

     At the root of panic is feeling out of control and afraid of your own thoughts. This "fear of the fear" keeps you stuck in the Fear Cycle. The R.A.I.N. Switch Technique stops the Fear Cycle before a panic attack can even begin. 

     Once you stop the panic attacks from happening, your fear of them disappears

     So when those first scary thoughts that used to trigger a panic attack pop into your head - this time you'll smile because you know exactly how to stop these thoughts and make them go away long before the panic attack can even begin.


   The "Beat Anxiety Forever Program" was created in a unique way to teach you everything you need to know about using the R.A.I.N. Switch Technique... explained step-by-step in easy to follow videos and printable guides.

     This program also contains literally hundreds of tips & tricksThis is the true gold that you won't find anywhere else. 

     This is info you'd otherwise have to spend years of REAL firsthand experience to learn - including answers to all those tough questions you can't just get by doing an internet search or buying a book.


     I'm going to teach you exactly how to use the R.A.I.N. Switch Technique in ANY situation to stop those scary thoughts within 14 seconds... 

BEFORE you feel out of control, allowing you to get back to enjoying your life!

     I'm also going to teach you step-by-step how to reduce stress and anxiety in your life, how to conquer your worst fears, and how to feel relaxed and calm all day long without relying on medication or alcohol.

     And unlike most anxiety programs, everything is explained in plain English, without any confusing "doctor" jargon.  I wrote everything so "regular people like us" could easily understand it all.

Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone who struggles with obsessive and scary "what-if?" thoughts
  • Anyone struggling with panic attacks and feeling out of control
  • Anyone struggling with fears of certain situations that they often avoid (driving, workplace, socializing, crowds, falling asleep, etc.)
  • Anyone who isn't panicked but feels a constant low-level of anxiety that's always there
  • Anyone who's made progress with their anxiety but needs help preventing relapses and establishing long-lasting change.

Award-Winning Author And Former Anxiety Sufferer

I think I'm a lot like you... In my mid-20s anxiety and panic attacks crashed into my life, and I had no idea what hit me. I struggled for 5 long years, but was determined to figure it all out without relying on mind-numbing medication or traditional therapy that simply hadn't helped.

In the end I got my life back and wrote my award-winning book A Life Less Anxious in 2009 to share with others exactly how I did it. Since then my teachings have grown into this program on Udemy, where I'm teaching for the very first time my ground-breaking "R.A.I.N. Switch Technique" - which teaches you how to find the "off-switch" for your racing thoughts and feel back in control within 14 seconds.

This technique along with the other step-by-step approaches I share in this program will help no matter what type of anxiety you suffer from. I encourage you to take the leap and start this program today, I've poured my last 8+ years of teaching into it and know it will change your life.

You got this... see you on the inside :-)
