I have successfully made my first step the a journey of becoming less shy! I did my best and succeeded at being less self-conscious. at the times I felt nervous but pulled my thoughts back to what I was doing and who I was training with. I managed to make it through the entire three hour class! only towards the end was the true test,which was to tell my Sifu about whaT I realized from the time he put me on the spot by asking questions and the goal was the just try no second guessing.. anyhow I attempted to do so but I cracked alittle and my shyness went through. I never said it would be perfect at the first try but it went much better than I thought. My Sifu offered to drive me home which allowed him to give me a serious reality check and now my two goals to overcoming my shyness are 1) don't second guess myself and 2) try(don't be afraid to be wrong or make mistakes just TRY
these two things are the mixture of my shyness and the key to overcoming it. and so it starts I will work on these two blocks and lets see what happens!
