Often times, many opportunities get lost and many amazing ideas get hidden from the world as a result of being timid.. and believe me, I know from experience. The feeling of being unable to confidently express yourself to the public is as dreadful as ever! Being timid can make a totally awesome and innovative idea seem lame because of poor self-conduct and insecurity while enlightening the public about the ideas.
As a blogger who aim at strengthening dream chasers’ shortcomings and helping them exhibit the attributes required to achieve success, I came up with some helpful tips to assist you in overcoming public anxiety and becoming a bold dream chaser and individual.
Carefully study the below tips and apply them in your daily doings to get effective mind boost and become absolutely courageous and bold.
Bare your abilities/specialties in mind
The key reason resulting to public intimidation the first place is because you consider everyone else to be “awesome” except yourself. Hence, even when everyone assembles to learn something from you, you feel unworthy and therefore eventually end up worthless.
Learn to exalt and extol yourself.. at least, while addressing an audience. Always bear in mind, the people you’re afraid of are also afraid of you.
While addressing a multitude, acknowledge your own specialties, and personally, applaud your ideas as the best of its kind. This will in a way or two help you to retain your sanity and sense of confidence.
Care less about negative reviews and criticism

What will be their review? What if I get mocked? What if they dislike me? and lots of many other “what ifs” that’ll subsequently destroy your confidence.
Whatever the reviews might be, be sure to put in your best effort.
Bear in mind, once your full potential is exercised, the temporary criticism is what’ll eventually earn you your recognition in due time. Never allow people’s feedback and reviews to overshadow yours.
Quit viewing people as superior
While attending a conference or speaking to a congregation, it’s important you disregard people’s titles and reputations. Being able to disregard formalities is the only way and time you can coherently speak and confidently pass your message across. Always strive to be in full control and express yourself wholly with no hesitation. Trying to not say things that might displease a person or an audience can eventually prevent you from saying things that’ll win them over.
Note hence, disregarding formalities doesn’t hint at you being hostile/rude to an audience. It simply means you quit attempting to particularly please an individual from within the crowd because of his/her influence and affluence.
Learn to view everyone in the congregation you’re about to address as equal.
Delight in solitude
Spending time with friends, spending time learning about celebrities and, spending time adoring people with readily visible special skills — all these are good and fun. However, never compare yourself with others; this can cause you to view yourself as uncool, unfit, pathetic or whichever word. If anything, people’s lives and luxuries should inspire you to work harder to become a better you.
Learn to observe some time alone in order discover yourself, and try to take note of your abilities and specialties.
Always remember you’re not the only one lacking confidence
Every individual struggle with confidence issues. However, some people engage in activities and take daily steps to improve their confidence while others hide their lack of confidence pretty well.
In dealing with people, bear this fact in mind and never be the first to display your lack of confidence. When people gaze at you, avoid reacting preposterously like smiling sheepishly or blinking uncontrollably. Instead, gaze back daringly no matter how uncomfortable it may feel. Also, take daily steps towards boosting your confidence and, learn to hide your lack of confidence too.
Get used to meeting new people
Often times, most timid people find it extremely uncomfortable to associate with people or to be in the midst of strangers — they fancy loneliness. However, a step in boosting your self-confidence will significantly require you to learn to deal with the discomfort of being with strangers. Being in your company or the company of friends all through your life will eventually deprive you of the mystery of acquaintance, the fun of strangers turning friends, and most importantly, it’ll make you only confident while in your comfort zone. Learn to exceed your cycle and enjoy people’s company.
Audience and large congregations are usually filled with people we are unfamiliar with. So, therefore, being used to meeting and getting acquainted with strangers is an important step in retaining your public conduct and confidence.
As shown by numerous analysis and case studies, exercise helps a great deal in building self-confidence. Exercise aids catabolism and anabolism, cause more blood release, bring about a rapidly pumping heart which in-turn stimulates the brain and boosts self-confidence.
Exercise makes you feel more comfortable with your physical appearance and in turn, it aids your mental stability.
Try as hard as possible to engage in as many exercises as possible on a daily basis. There are varieties of exercise to choose from — this means there’s certainly a daily workout routine you can engage in regardless of your age or gender.
With all that noted, it’s important you also note that becoming self-confident is never a one-time activity. It’s a gradual process that ultimately requires your realization of the fact that you’re special in your own unique way.
Go out from today and add a little bravery to your words, actions and self-coordination.
When you have confidence, you can have a lot of fun. And when you have fun, you can do amazing things. – Joe Namath
