Do you remember that boy in your class, that you didn’t use to speak with him and was always alone? Or that girl who didn’t seem to care much about their appearance and not had too much success between the guys of the school? Sure that you remember someone who met this profile, and can even that you see reflected in the description.
We talk about that boy or girl allergic to social life, who always was thinking about something without talk. There is an expression, very often attributed to this type of personality: “looser”.
That is to say, they are the losers. Well, nothing farther from reality.
Judging people in advance, without discover their personality, problems, thoughts and way to be is something that we all do more or less often. It is a small factory defect of the human being. We associate certain aspects or attitudes surface of people to the success or failure. We believe that a person who is very outgoing and sociable has everything to gain; on the contrary, we believe that the shyer will always be lonely and sad, bound to lose. However, it turns out that shy people, end up achieving great successes, and even the popularity. And then they usually say those phrases as “in school, nobody wanted to speak with me,” “In school I was so unnoticed!”.
We have many examples of great achievers who were shy in the most tender youth. From Mark Zuckerberg, the billionaire creator of Facebook, the social network world’s most famous, to Bruce Springsteen, a musical artist of global success and author of authentic rock hymns, not by chance called the Boss. And after these, going through all those great actors of Hollywood, as the very Johnny Depp, who claim that he is extremely shy behind the cameras.
So, what are the keys to success for a shy person?
