I did a previous post on how being introverted can pay off. Often times, shyness is tied into being introverted. This is a huge misconception. Shyness and being introverted are two different things. Shyness gets in the way.
Shyness holds you back and keeps people away.
If you are looking to make moves in your business, career or personal life, you have to conquer certain strongholds in order to succeed in these areas. There are steps you can take in the right direction towards conquering shyness. Here’s how writing can help you take those steps:
Uncloud your thoughts
A lot of the times it’s hard to communicate with people because your thoughts are all over the place. When was the last time you did a brain dump? When was the last time to released old, stale thoughts? Writing can serve as an excellent tool to release thoughts that may have been tormenting you for a while. Once your thoughts are cleared and organized, your communication improves greatly. You’ll be able to interact with others clearly and they will understand what you have to say. This helps replace shyness with confidence.
Jot it down before the meeting
If you’re having that dreaded meeting with your boss, have to give a presentation or getting ready to have that much needed conversation with someone that has offended you, it’s critical that you’re prepared to say what you have to say. Make a list of points you want to discuss and even bring it with you to help you stay on track. You won’t look foolish doing this. Instead, you’ll look like you mean business and will be taken seriously. Making this list will help you organize your thoughts and your emotions. It will also empower you to speak up for yourself. This will leave even less room for shyness to be comfortable inside you.
Be real with yourself
When no one is looking, when you’re having that private moment within yourself, choose to take the brave step and be HONEST. Be honest with yourself and honest about your feelings. Write down how that situation made you feel, the role you played and what you’re going to do about it. Remember this is a step, not necessarily a commitment. By taking this step, you’ll see a difference in your relationships with people and how you see yourself. Shyness will play a smaller role as time goes on and you use writing as an outlet.
Using writing as an outlet is a very powerful way of releasing and dealing with situations that may be troubling you. It’s been done over and over again as some of the most successful stories told originated out of someone who was ready to release through writing. If you’re interested in releasing and being able to be understood by people more, stay tuned…there’s a great tool coming for you from New3Creation!

Remember..ENVISION and CREATE!
I don’t know where the time went, but it has definitely flown by! I remember getting off that bus, with my overnight bag in tow, ready to take over the world as a member of the Armed Forces. That day dream was quickly interrupted, or should I say SNATCHED by a bunch of drill instructors with noisy shoes and brimmed hats yelling in our faces, telling us…well I won’t repeat those things here! Ha ha!
My time in was a great run as I saw tons of exciting places, met all types of people from around the world and made lifelong friendships. The experience is like no other and I would do it all over again because it’s a choice I do not regret at all. Being surrounded by others who really know the meaning of “sacrifice” will do some things to you. My eyes were opened about many things while being stationed overseas, seeing the immediate effects of war from seeing the injured soldiers at Landstuhl Hospital to standing at attention at Dover Air Base to honor the coffins that were being transported from the plane to the waiting family members.
If you come across or know someone who has served or is currently serving, take the time to really thank them for the choice they made. It wasn’t an easy one as it’s a choice that affects the rest of our lives.
Thanks. Happy Veteran’s Day!
I’ll never forget the time someone looked at me and said “you need to be more ‘boisterous’”. They really thought they were giving me sound advice. They really thought they were helping me by telling me something like that.
The fact is, they really don’t know who I am.
