Are you shy and find it difficult to make new friends? Do you want to make your life more pleasant by overcoming shyness and being more confident? If the answer is yes then you are reading the right article. In this article I have compiled some essential tips that can help you to overcome shyness and connect with people around you.
Making a positive impression on people around you is not as difficult as you might think. Let`s go through some tips one by one.
1. Introduce Yourself with a Smile
Have you ever been afraid of introducing yourself to somebody. This is a very basic habit but it plays a very important role. Don`t ever delay in introducing yourself to a new face because longer you wait the harder it gets.
2. Be a Good Listener
The person you are most interested in is You. Everyone loves to talk about himself. Never interrupt people who are telling you about their daily lives. You can even ask them more about their lives and let them talk.
3. Be Generous To The People
It`s easy to be judgmental but difficult to be generous. Don`t be in a hurry to judge the people who act differently than you expect. It`s a better idea to reserve the judgement and give some time to the person so that he can be more comfortable with you.
4. Give Compliments
It`s not advisable to compliment someone for the sake of it. But if you genuinely like something about a person then go ahead and give them a gift of compliment. Everyone loves a compliment and you are one of them. Always remember the golden rule – “Do to others as you would have them do to you.”
5. Remember The Names
Every one of us wants to feel special but we always seek approval from others. If you have met somebody earlier than it is a good idea to call him by name. Remembering somebody`s name is one of the greatest gifts you can give somebody.
I would like to push you to think about your moments of shyness. Think about them and try to identify the things which are holding you back from overcoming shyness and making new friends. Pick one of the tips from the article above and apply it in your life and I am sure that you will definitely see some positive changes.
