You’re Not Shy, You’re Boring

Here’s a little rant I just recorded. It’s said with all of the love in my heart and as a call to action to break free from the ‘cocoon’ of shyness. Enjoy!

So often people use shyness as an excuse not to contribute.

I know so many introverts – like myself – who make being an introvert into a noble, glorified thing.

If we want to be the most well-rounded, charismatic person we can be…

We have to cultivate the skills of the extrovert.

This doesn’t mean that you have to live in ‘extrovert mode’ 24 hours a day, but it does mean that you have to be able to bring out those skills when you need them.

When I step out on stage for instance, I’m bringing out the skills of the extrovert, even though that’s not who I am naturally.

It’s fun to be able to do both.

You can be an introvert and enjoy being an extrovert on certain evenings and occasions, and then go back to being an introvert.

Never let someone convince you that being an introvert stops you from being able to bring out the extrovert just for the hell of it.

Being able to develop those skills was one of the biggest gifts I gave myself because now I’m able to go into situations that scare me, and in spite of that fear, I’m able to bring out parts of my personality that when I’m younger I never used to be able to bring out.

–Is it okay to sometimes be shy?

Yes of course.

The point is that being that way all the time and using it as an excuse to never not be shy is not good.

You’re more than shy. Don’t allow yourself to be labelled. Be what you want to be in any given moment.

Do what works. Not what you ‘think’ you are.

  • I drop a leave a response when I especially enjoy a post on a site
    or if I have something to contribute to the discussion. It’s a result of the passion communicated
    in the post I browsed. And on this article Youre Not Shy, Youre
    Boring. I was excited enough to drop a commenta response :)
    I do have a couple of questions for you if it’s allright.
    Is it simply me or do a few of the comments appear like they are left by brain dead people?
    :-P And, if you are writing on additional online sites, I’d like to follow you.

    Could you list all of all your community sites like your twitter feed,
    Facebook page or linkedin profile?

  • This is my second post to one of your videos. Additionally, this is the second day that I learned about you and your blog. So be kind. A person gets a little overwhelmed when we listen to your videos. There is so much clarity and information that I for one never heard anyone else share,not even my father. So thanks for the guidance. P.S. When are you touring the Washington DC area? It would be nice to come to one of your seminars. I would help organize it is necessary. ;o).

  • I don’t know if it’s just me or if perhaps everyone
    else encountering issues with your website. It appears as though some of the written text in your content are running
    off the screen. Can someone else please comment
    and let me know if this is happening to them too?
    This may be a problem with my internet browser because I’ve
    had this happen previously. Kudos

  • May I just say what a comfort to uncover somebody who actually understands what they’re discussing over the
    internet. You certainly understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    More people need to check this out and understand this side of the story.
    I was surprised you’re not more popular given that you certainly have the gift.

  • First off I would like to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.
    I’ve had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting
    my ideas out. I do enjoy writing but it just seems
    like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted just trying
    to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
    Kudos!

  • I do trust all the ideas you have offered for your post.
    They are very convincing and can certainly work. Still, the
    posts are very short for newbies. May just you please extend them a little from subsequent time?
    Thank you for the post.
