In this video men’s style, grooming, fitness and lifestyle expert, Aaron Marino of IAmAlphaM  https://iamalpham.com/ AaronMarino https://aaronmarino.com/ Pete & Pedro https://peteandpedro.com/ Tiege Hanley https://www.tiege.com/and ENEMY https://enemy.com/ is talking about being shy. Shyness is just a bad habit — it’s learned, and it’s self-sabotaging. You are not born with it, and it is not a personality trait.

With shyness, you are basing yourself on other’s standards — and thus you are too hard on yourself because you are too worried about what other people think. Missing out due to fear of failure will cause amazing opportunities also to be missed. Take these steps every morning to combat shyness.

Start Doing These Tomorrow Morning!

  1. Stop labeling  yourself as shy — it’s an excuse that will prevent you from engaging
  2. Punch that little voice that says you’re not good enough — instead give yourself the Alpha M. pep-talk 3xs, “I’m awesome, and I am going to kick ass today” in order to hard reset your brain
  3. Face your shyness head-on — push through it, face these feelings, and embrace them
  4. Remember the things you are great at — nurture it and build it. Uncover your passions.
  5. Work out — the more you push your body physically, the stronger your mind. Plus the gym is a social setting.
  6. Compliment people more often — chop through awkward situations with compliments because everyone loves getting them
