SYDNEY, Australia, February 16, 2019—Author, life coach and recovered shy-guy, Joel Annesley, launches his book Quiet Confidence: Breaking Up with Shyness at Gleebooks in Glebe, Sydney Australia in a combined launch event with writing coach, Jane Turner.

In Quiet Confidence: Breaking Up with Shyness, published by Power Writers Publishing Group, Annesley assures those plagued by shyness that they can overcome traumas that caused their shyness to develop, learn to embrace the beauty within, and express themselves with confidence.  

Annesley once had an overbearing relationship with shyness, starting with being publicly humiliated in front of his friends by his first-grade teacher. The experience left him insecure and unable to speak up, an affliction that affected him into adulthood, personally and professionally.  Unlike introversion - a basic personality trait characterized by inward-looking thoughts and feelings vs external stimulation - shyness most often occurs as a result of a painful experience, says Annesley. Shyness can be overcome by changing our inner dialogue and strengthening the voice within, says Annesley.

Annesley tells his personal story of how he overcame his shyness once he began exploring its roots and was then able to make the decision to finally break up with shyness, seeing life with new eyes and living a life of quiet confidence.

Inside Quiet Confidence: Breaking Up with Shyness, readers will discover simple, easy-to-follow steps to build the courage to break up with their shyness, and embrace the beauty within.

Readers will learn to create a life-changing blueprint to release the grip that shyness has held over them for far too long, and help them develop the calm, quiet, and courageous voice they have always dreamed of but never thought they would ever find.

Quote from Quiet Confidence: Breaking Up with Shyness:

“As you embark on the journey, you will start to be recognised for it; people will recognise you for who you really are. Most importantly, you will start to recognise yourself and you will rarely be ruled by shyness again. You’ll develop the awareness that you’ve had Quiet Confidence from the beginning. No more hiding, no more fear, just you and Quiet Confidence like two long lost friends, reunited at last.”  - author Joel Annesley
