Battling with shyness through motivating one’s self is indeed one of the best ways to live a good life. This is because if one is motivated well, he or she can set goals that are within his or her reach. He or she can also find ways to deal with defeats without having to feel anxious or depressed over something that may be beyond his or her control. The following are just some of the ways on how people can motivate themselves if they are depressed over being too shy:
A good fight
1. Never stop learning. Experts say that once people realize that life is never-ending journey to learning, they will be able to find ways to battle with shyness. To keep ones self-motivated to overcome shyness, it is best never stop learning because this opens to new worlds of possibilities that are waiting to be explored. If one continues learning through read or by trying different things, he or she can gain more confidence to do things and start with new projects. Also, when one continues learning, he or she will gain newer skills that can add up to the things that he or she can do.
2. Always have a positive outlook in life. This might some easy for some but many people are in fact having a hard time developing and maintaining a positive outlook in life. Maybe because people just have different personalities and different upbringing that affect the way they see life in general. If one wants to overcome shyness, he or she must start developing a positive outlook in life. This can be done by trying to see the good in bad at all time or whenever possible. If people are able to overcome obstacles, he or she would soon develop the habit of looking for ways that would help him or her overcome that problem.
3. Avoid too much thinking. If possible, stop thinking always over something. This is because thinking would only bring in a mix of emotions that could be harder to handle and manage later. To keep constant motivation in battling with shyness, one must try to veer away from negative thoughts and only think of the things where he or she could something good. One must also try not to mull on things that are beyond control because this will only cloud the positive outlook he or she is trying to build.
4. Find time to share and help others. Motivation is a process that indirectly involves other people for it to be successful. If you think you are doing well at your own pace in battling your own shyness, it would help if you find time to share the experience as well as the ideas to others so you will influence them. If the people—especially those that matter to you—see that motivation helps you a lot in dealing with shyness, they would even might want to try the same thing that you are doing.
