When I started to work upon my shyness, it seemed almost impossible to overcome. So I decided to analyze my thoughts by writing them down in a diary. When I read my report, I found that the excessive self-consciousness was the root cause of my shyness. So I decided to shift my focus on to the other person while I was having a conversation with him. I started to learn and observe the body language of others. It not only helped me to get rid of my problem, but also helped me to understand others better.
