Break Out Of Your Shy Shell

When we first posted our How To Get What You Want From Your Career article we received a few comments in regards to people being shy, networking, and confidence. So today we are bringing you some tips and tricks on how to boost your confidence and break out of your shell!

Our first shell breaking tip is to build your confidence and know your strengths. 
Everyone has a strength and below you can see some examples of this broken down to get you thinking and build your strength list.

Knowing your strong points will help you promote them as well as yourself.

Next it's time to stop doing certain things that we sometimes do unintentionally.

1. Stop doubting yourself -Doubt is the number one dream killer. Never doubt yourself and your potential.
2. Stop your fear of failure- The only failure is never trying at all. Try your hardest, learn from your mistakes, and continue building yourself from there. 
3. Stop negative thinking- Negativity brings you down. Think positive, be positive in your thoughts of you and the future, and surround yourself with positive thinkers too!
4. Stop destructive relationships- Destructive relationships make a mess not only of your life in general but also puts a huge halt to your success. Make sure your relationships are strong, positive, and beneficial for all involved. The people in your life should help lift you up and build confidence, not bring you down.
5. Stop criticizing yourself an others- This is negativity again, and who wants negativity in their life?
6. Stop gossiping- I never understood gossiping, it always comes back around and bites you right in the ass anyways. Break the cycle, stop the gossip!
7. Stop being fearful- If someone else can achieve their goals there is no reason you can't. "Fake it till you make it" comes into play here. People are fearful all the time but some of the most successes people people have achieved come from them pushing themselves past being fearful and just doing it. 
8. Stop feeling as though you need to please everyone- You need to be you and do what is right for you. Part of breaking out of your shell is about not caring what others think of the true, real, you! You should never feel like you need to be a certain way just to please other. Be you, they will love you, and if they don't...their loss!
