"One of the easiest ways to become more outgoing is to ask your friends, colleagues, or classmates to introduce you to their friends. For example, if you walk into a room and your friend is talking to someone else, make a point to say hello and introduce yourself.
Improving your communication skills is one of the best steps you can take to help boost your self-confidence and all over happiness. If you are to some extent an introvert or shy, becoming more social may be the key to opening up and gaining more opportunities in your life. If you are one of those people who have difficulty effectively communicating with other people, find it hard to get your ideas across or worry about what to say, this book is for you."
