Don't Let Shyness Stop You

Have you ever wanted to do something, but you didn't do it because you were too
shy? When I was younger I wanted to be an actress, but I was so shy I decided
not to. Don't do what I did. If there is something you want to do don't let shyness
stop you. Tell yourself what you want to do is possible and don't worry about what
other people may think of you.

* You want to say "hi" to someone...
   Say "hi" to someone. What's the worst that could happen?

* You want to dance on the dance floor...
   Dance on the dance floor. Don't lean on the wall all night.

* You want to be a singer...
   Be a singer. If you love singing you've got to do this.

* You want to ask someone out...
   Ask someone out. If they say "no" just move on.

* You want to give a speech...
   Give a speech. As long as you practice you'll be O.K.

   Remember, don't let shyness stop you.

Embrace What Makes You Different

Self-esteem is a lot more than looks, but you can't deny looks are important. When
I was younger, I had a gap between my two front teeth and I hated it. It took me a
long time to accept my teeth, but I finally did. Years later, I got TMJ and I was told
I had to get braces to fix my jaw. The braces closed the space between my teeth,
so I had to get used to having no gap. The point is,you should embrace what makes
you look different.

Are you someone who doesn't like the sound of your voice? Is it your accent?
Is it your tone? Don't be a voice hater.  Fran Drescher didn't let her voice stop her 
 from pursuing an acting career.

Take what makes you different and embrace it.

Act Like a Celebrity

Act like a positive celebrity please. Celebrities...  

Act Confident
Act confident and you will become confident.

You will be more approachable and personable.

Here are some ideas:

  • earrings
  • tattoos
  • belts
  • necklaces
  • scarves
  • hats
  • eyewear
  • rings

Change Styles
Instead of wearing jeans all the time try khaki pants. Instead of wearing pants
all the time try a dress. If you normally don't wear a tie, put one on to see how
it makes you feel.

Try Different Activities
Go places you've never been! Do things you've never done!
