Five Confident Ways to Overcome Your Shyness
Those who have never got a chance to deal with shyness have no idea about how debilitating it can be, especially for someone in professional circumstances. If shyness is holding you back, learn how to get rid of shyness and become confident.
Shyness can hold people back- partly because those who are shy avoid public gatherings and speaking up, and partly they experience so much chronic anxiety.
Take your first steps in getting past from your shyness with these amazing thirteen techniques to help you become a more confident you.
1. Don’t tell.
You don’t need to advertise your shyness. Those who are close to you already know and others may never even got a chance to notice. It’s not as visible as you probably think.
2. Keep it light.
If others bring up your shyness, keep your tone casual. If it becomes part of a discussion, speak of it lightheartedly.
3. Change your tone.
If you blush when you’re uncomfortable, don’t equate it with shyness. Let it stand on its own: “I’ve always been quick to blush.”
4. Avoid the label.
Don’t label yourself as a shy person –or as anything. Let yourself be defined as a unique individual, not a single trait.
5. Stop self-sabotaging.
Sometimes we really are our own worst enemy. Don’t allow your inner critic to put you down. Instead, analyze the power of that voice so you can defuse it.
