      It is very true that most people are shy or so to say they are not confident of their own presence and individuality. If you have the confidence and grace to look the other person in his eyes and tell him point-blank about what you need then the chances of being successful are definitely higher than just thinking over and over again. I guess, this is the quality of winners. They know what they need and they know how to communicate what they need. Stop thinking about what others think of you and be a crisp communicator.

      People must know how to negotiate to others, they must be confident enough on doing this. We should work on it well to be able to achieve something., everything is definitely right in this article. :)
