I used to be super shy.
How shy were you, Anna?
Okay, unfiltered, totally vulnerable here: I peed my pants in class in Grade 7 because I was too shy to raise my hand to ask to go to the bathroom. True embarrassing story.
Here’s the long and the short of how to be more confident:
Remember this formula:
Courage + Action + Practice = Competence = Confidence = SEXY
Note: Confidence and arrogance are not the same animal. The former is quiet self-assurance; the latter is braggart and boring, aka Yes, Sir! Major Turnoff, Sir!
Yep, as you might’ve guessed, I’m no longer shy—which is not the same as introverted, which I still am. I even applied to speak at TedTalks recently. Although I’d have shit my pants had I been accepted, I still applied, people!
I taught myself how to get over shyness, and I’m paying it forward by teaching others how to get over shyness (without having to tell your ultra private pee stories).
p.s. I don’t post all my WingmamTV videos on this site, so please subscribe to my YouTube channel if you don’t want to miss any!
pee.pee.s. I don’t pee my pants anymore. I totally promise. (That’s in case MFH reads this.)
