In your professional life, it’s time for you to step away from the corner and push yourself into the forefront. Speak up and add your ideas to the mix more often, starting today! Don’t worry that your boss won’t like what you say. The fact that you contribute is more important than what you’re saying right now. Shyness is a legitimate trait, one you shouldn’t try to change in yourself. But you need more control over it so that you can shove it aside if it’s holding you back.
