Yesterday, January 2, is World Introvert Day. We
are sharing with you these tips for overcoming
shyness as an Introvert as written by Joel

1. Avoid negative labels. Labels can build you
up or destroy you; choose the label that
empowers you instead of tears you down.
Think Quietly Confident instead of Shy.

2. Look within. The key to finding your true
self is to look within and to celebrate who you
really are. Practice non-judgemental
awareness, self-compassion and loving
kindness for the beautiful person you are
inside and the way you see the world.

3. Stop overthinking everything.
Overthinking and shyness go hand-in-hand.
Overthinking leads to indecisiveness, mental
exhaustion and self-defeating, negative
thoughts. The solution is to learn how to
outsmart your overthinking.

4. Find your safe place. When you develop
your safe environment, a place where you can
be free to be vulnerable, you will have no need
to overthink things. When you slowly expand
this environment, your Quiet Confidence will
also expand and grow.

5. Find your tribe. Spend time with those who
build you up, and support and encourage you
unconditionally to express yourself.

6. Find a creative outlet. Developing and
expressing your creative passions can lead you
to become a Subject Matter Expert, which will
help you will naturally become more confident.

7. Develop positive body talk. Confidence
doesn’t have to be verbal. Becoming aware of,
and adjusting, your body language, posture and
physical appearance can provide you with
instant confidence.

Inside Quiet Confidence: Breaking Up
with Shyness, readers will discover
simple, easy-to-follow steps to build
the courage to break up with their
shyness, and embrace the beauty

Readers will learn to create a life-
changing blueprint to release the
grip that shyness has held over them
for far too long, and help them
develop the calm, quiet, and
courageous voice they have always
dreamed of but never thought they
would ever find.

Quote from Quiet Confidence:
Breaking Up with Shyness:

“What is shyness, really? For me, it’s
something I’ve experienced for many
years. It’s like this invisible being
that approaches, silently restricting
and controlling me and leaving me
powerless. It is as if someone is
actually placing their hand over my
mouth and restricting my speech. I
feel helpless to do anything—like
when you try to speak in a foreign
country but nothing comes out
because you don’t know the right
words. Silence is a better option
than making a fool of yourself.” –
