  1. Every morning, as soon as you get up, get in front of a mirror and say out loud “I feel great! I feel great! I feel terrific!” Repeat this statement with excitement at least ten times everyday until it’s ingrained into your subconscious mind. If feel a little self conscious to begin with lock yourself in the bathroom. The effects will amaze you.
  2. Feel good about yourself. Look your best. Dress up more often. This gives you an extra feeling of security and self respect. On its own just knowing that you look good will boost your confidence and reinforce with others that there are things about you that are worth getting to know.

  4. When you are involved in a one to one conversation, or with a bigger group of people, let them know that you’re shy. This stops them from misunderstanding you and they are far more likely to invite you into the conversation rather than leave you just listening and wishing you could contribute.

Many people, me included, find following a talk in a noisy place difficult. If you are having trouble say so and move so that you can hear. People admire honesty, and vulnerability and you will bring more honest people into your life as a result.
