Wear a GOOD pair of paints, clean your shoes, matching socks, iron the pants and shirt - wear a cartoon tie or something, wear that orangey colour AXE aftershave (plus the deoderant) - you will feel so good you will act it out.

Why are you shy? You are a human being with just as much worth as anyone else on this planet. What works for me when I need a bit of courage is I will put on a power outfit that fits with the occasion, use my best perfume and put extra effort in with my make-up. Obvioussly you are a guy and can't do that, but I am sure there are things guys do that makes them feel good or powerfull or full of selfworth!
