What to Do When You're New
How to Be Comfortable, Confident, and Successful in New Situations
Success starts with a simple act: doing something new. It can be starting a new job or school, or moving to a new neighborhood. It can be meeting a prospective client or attending a networking event. To achieve anything in life, you have to put yourself out there, meet new people, and try new things. But sometimes we freeze. Awkwardness, worry, and reluctance keep us stuck in our boxes. If we learn to conquer these natural anxieties, we can confidently seize life’s opportunities.
