Wow! This video hit home.
I used to be soooo painfully shy that I had no idea how to actually make friends (much less influence them).
I read Dale Carnegie’s book, “How To Win Friends and Influence People” but it just didn’t “take”.
It wasn’t until I moved to what I considered to be the “unfriendly” city of New Haven CT that I started getting serious about breaking out of my shyness.
That’s when I started the “hi!” program. I would force myself to say hi to everyone I passed on the street, in the park, wherever I was walking about town.
And you know what? It was a blast! The first few “hellos” were a little scary but once I got warmed up it was INCREDIBLY energizing and uplifting and saying hi and smiling clearly had a positive effect on a lot of people. Sure, a few didn’t respond but that’s just part of the practice of not being attached to outcomes.
I even had conversations with people. Even women! It was eye opening. It was the opposite of creepy. It was refreshing and life affirming.
This morning I stumbled across this video that suggests a similar approach and I thought I’d share it with you just in case you need a little encouragement to get out of your comfort zone and begin to say “hi!”.
If you’re a guy and you find yourself frozen with anxiety at the thought of approaching an interesting and attractive woman, you might want to check out my “Shy Guy Help” program or consider some personal coaching.
I’ve been there and done that! You are not alone.
BTW my “Shy Guy Help” program is not about becoming a sleazy pick up artist. It’s simply about being comfortable showing up in the world as a confident man who is interested in everyone and able to enjoy and communicate authentically with people wherever you find yourself in life.
And…. yeah. Women find that attractive…
Actually EVERYONE finds that attractive. So check it out!
The really important thing is just to be fully aware that you can realize the change you’re looking for…
And here’s how
