So I have decided that not every post here needs to be some long, insightful, inspiring post. It slows me down from providing more contact and support here for you, if I always focus on writing an “amazing” post.
So I am going to start to send more inspirational snippets, a little more often. Don’t worry I won’t be inundating you too much.
It is a trap, I have realized.
Just like it is a trap to think you have to have big, huge social interactions each time you go out.
Sometimes, the smallest things can be the most impactful…
Doing just one, small thing each day.
In Japanese philosophy they call it Kai-zen. Which basically means incremental progress adds up over time.
(Just ask some of my former program participants, they will tell you.)
Here are some ideas for very small, but powerful ACTIONS you can take to overcome shyness and anxiety TODAY.
- Say “hi, how are you today” to a friendly-looking stranger, or someone at work you haven’t met yet.
- Smile at one person you normally wouldn’t.
- Give just one compliment to a barista or cash register person to brighten their day.
- Make eye contact with an attractive person and hold it for just one…two… seconds longer than you normally would.
Do just one small thing.
What one small thing will you do today?
This is where it all begins and continues. That is where progress is.
P.S. I will soon be announcing a membership program that will give on-going live group coaching support with me at a very low-cost. I am very excited about it, and has a tremendous value for the cost. If you want to stay notified about it, go to this link to get on the pre-signup list.
