Overcoming Shyness


One of the biggest things I have always said to myself is, "I can't do this”.  Now instead of that I try to tell myself that I can do it, and so far I have noticed some changes..

I have also used some strategies for presentations I have done. I have never enjoyed oral presentations because I’m usually nervous, but lately I haven’t been worrying about speaking in front of others much. The thing that really changed this was the DECA competition. During our presentation, I remember being very focused on presenting well and it turned out great.

This was even true for the board break seminar that came to our school. At first I wasn’t concentrating on breaking the board.  But once I changed my focus, I broke right through it. 

I have learned that focus is everything and it is a strategy that I think will help me a lot.
