Finally, how do you improve your communication as an introvert? So, let me take you all through certain points, you can use to improve your communication as an introvert. 

First thing you should do is set a goal that you got to put yourself out there if you want to progress in your career and in your life, even if you want to pick up a girlfriend or boyfriend, you got to be out there. So you gotta decide in your head. 

I need to talk when it's needed. So you're going to put an outer shell where required. Now, how do you do that? My suggestion is for various scenarios and different kind of opportunities, presented to communicate with people, prepare a set of standard questions. 

If it is work scenario and you're meeting a new person for the first time, what are the questions you will ask? If you're going to a party where you are meeting complete strangers, what kind of questions you will ask? If you are in a classroom talking to fellow students, what kind of questions you will ask? So prepare certain questions, a certain set of questions. 

A first set of Icebreaker questions. Always have this handy. If you're unsure you will remember, write it in a cheat sheet, keep it in your wallet or your purse. Now, next point, when you go into an environment where you have to communicate with strangers, the first person that you see, start talking to that person.
 
Don't see whether he is an old person or young person. Are they like you or they dissimilar, are they smart? Are they nerdy? Are they quiet? Doesn't matter. Just start the conversation. You have the set of questions from the previous points I mentioned, use that. When you meet this person, think in your head, you have a goal, you need to communicate with them even for two minutes.

Think about the wonderful promotion or a relationship that you will make by making that first step. Put a hook in your head. If I do this, I have something else amazing coming. If, then, else. Once you've started meeting people and you start communicating, you will start getting into a flow of suitable topics that this person may like. 

So just be aware of some World, Knowledge, read newspapers, read magazines, be aware of current affairs so you can pick up conversations and continue the conversations. You don't have to be a master of any subject, but be a jack of a few different subjects which you will use, come handy when you are interacting with people. That's Point number three. 

Now Point number four is sometimes as an introvert when you're communicating with someone for a long time it can be suffocating for you. Just take a break for maybe five, ten minutes, get out of that place. 

Give an excuse that you want to grab a glass of water or go to the toilet. Refresh your mind, come back and continue because introverts do need that break once in a while. The first point is starting various forms of communication. Before you try out your external communication, start with Social Media communication, write emails, send messages to people, then extend it to a presentation to a known audience and then finally can be presentation to an unknown stranger audience. Just take step by step and practice. 

The next point is join Toastmasters Club. It's available in every city. It's a club worldwidec called Toastmasters. It is where people who don't know each other come together and practice public speaking and communication, this will really help to remove your anxiety. 

Remove the stress out of you and helps you communicate, you know, unbiased and judged environment. You will feel after a few sessions, your yourself and you will start practicing communication. And it will help you become a more confident person. But the most important and the last reason is just remember, if you don't actively pursue and practice these tips, you could be stuck in your career forever. 

So for all these reasons, I would like the introvert listening to this video, to practice these tips and do share.
