7 Easy Steps to Overcome Shyness
It's Time to Get Out There!
Are you suffering under the burden of shyness and wondering if there’s a way for you to break out of your shell and become a more confident and assertive person?

If so, you’ll be excited to know that we’ve collected seven fool proof tips for overcoming shyness, which you can practise right now.

1. Recognise What Shyness Really Is

Most shy people don’t realise that there’s nothing humble about being shy ... in fact, it’s quite the opposite. Shyness is pride. Just as being loud, obnoxious and egotistical is.

This is because both the loud and arrogant pride and the quiet, shy pride focus more on oneself than on other people.

The difference is that shy pride is being overly focused on your insecurities, while loud and arrogant pride is being overly focused on your "perceived" strengths. 

So there’s nothing humble or noble about being shy, and most of the time realising that alone is enough to snap you out of it. 

2. Let Go of Approval Addiction 

If you’re shy, most likely it’s because of a need for approval from other people to feel good about yourself. This approval addiction will always keep you from being your best self, by being afraid of whether or not someone will think you’re “weird”, or some other negative. 

People will have opinions about you no matter how great you are. The best thing that you can do for yourself with other people’s opinions is to stop letting them have so much influence on your life. 

3. Take Small Steps 

Like any other personality trait, shyness is a habit and we can overcome it, just as you would overcome any other kind of habit. This means taking small, incremental steps designed to replace the habit of shyness with a new, empowering habit of being outgoing and assertive. 

Start by simply saying “Hello” to people whom you don’t know. Do this for a solid week, or until it becomes second nature. 

Once this happens, add the simple phrase: “How are you doing today?” and again, do this until it becomes second nature ... then you can move on to bigger things like starting conversations and getting to know people whom you just met.

4. Improve Your Posture and Body Language 

Your posture has a significant impact on the condition of your mind, and your mind strongly impacts your perception of yourself. Start concentrating on how confident people carry themselves: their posture, the pace of their walk and the manner of their gestures (whether they are slow or fast, certain or timid, etc.). 

As you do this, you’ll recognise patterns that you can incorporate into your own posture and body language. 

5. Positive Affirmations 

The way you talk to yourself has a dramatic impact on your self-image, and your self-image is what determines whether you are shy or assertive. 

Using positive affirmations such as “I am interesting, outgoing and enthusiastic” and other phrases that convey confidence and assertiveness can help you develop a positive thought process. This will help you build an empowering self-image and overcome shyness. 

6. Find Like-minded People to Practise With 

A great way to overcome shyness is to find like-minded people who have the same interests and passions as you. This is because it will awaken your inner source of passion and give you something to talk to them about, which will make you forget your shyness. 

The more you do this, the easier it will be to overcome the habit of shyness and to become outgoing. 

7. Take a Dance Class 

Taking group dance classes is probably one of the best ways to overcome shyness because it forces you to get comfortable talking with people ... which is normally difficult for shy people to do. 

Dancing is also great because it will help you meet new people and give you something interesting to talk about. Whatever you do, pick a few of these tips to apply and get started right away!
