Lack of self-confidence and
self-esteem is a problem that affects millions of women. In a survey conducted by us, we found that as many as two out of three women felt unsure about their looks and considered it to be a problem in
finding a relationship or enjoying their current relationship. But it is important to know that a lot of the
fears that women have are just fears (in other words, unreasonable and baseless) and
can be overcome with just simple reasoning and little effort.
Let us take a look at some of the common fears that women have:
I get scared when people look at my direction. I often think they're judging
We are all so interested in how "we" look that we rarely care how others look. We are inherently so selfish that we rarely find the time to even notice others. So no one really has the time to judge others. When people look at you, they are merely trying to
communication. If you simply smile and be polite, your fear will gradually go away.

am scared of being left out in social situations.
Who isn't? In fact there is something wrong with people who do not
feel bad after
rejection. We just have to appreciate this reality so that we can continue to
take risks without worrying about rejection all the time.
There are two important things you need to know about social situations.
One, people tend to talk to people that they
feel affinity with. It can be age, sex, skin
color, class, whatever that makes us more
comfortable. That is why even powerful
networkers (think salespeople, pastors/priests,
politicians, etc.) struggle to find new people
to talk to. Two, we are all so desperate for
listeners for all the wonderful things that we
like to talk about. So if you can be a good
listener and ask questions, people will love
you. All you need to do is to be interested in
other people and simply join any group of people

There is nothing wrong with looking good all the time, even when
you are totally alone or with someone who is very close to you (and would not judge you by how you look, for instance, a family member, spouse, or a close friend). It is human nature to feel good when we look good. Similarly, we like to see other good-looking people around us. So dressing up and
putting on makeup to look and feel good are simple techniques to have a great day. For the same reason, I always suggest that women not only worry about what they were on the outside but even their
clothing (even if you know that no one is likely to see it). You will feel good yourself when you do that and it will show in your demeanor and

simple tricks for establishing
trust. However, you can always start off by trusting people that are already close to you. If you share just a little bit more than you have done so far with them, you will realize that you have

relationships. Use this newly found trust to build similar, stronger relationships with other people that you donít know so well.
