When shyness overshadows our talents, we miss out on opportunities to grow and advance, trapped in a vicious circle of insecurity and frustration.
Shyness is often masked as disinterest or indifference, yet its root is much deeper.
If we go deep into the feeling of shyness, we will discover pure fear – fear of what others might think of us; the fear of disapproval.
If you have been to one of my events or practice the techniques explained in my books, you already have the practical tools you need to overcome this shyness, but if not, what can you do?
The only thing you need to do is find security within yourself: to reach the point where what you think of yourself becomes more important than any external opinion. Shyness is fed by thoughts of self criticism, often instilled by a judgmental or authoritarian figure in our past who made us feel less. Yet the origin is not important. What matters is that when our shyness activates, instead of acting out the same old defensive reactions, we listen to our hearts and dive deeper, beyond the fear, allowing our natural talents to shine through.
