Could lack of safety be losing you clients?

safety

I knew this business owner was fun, friendly and really good at what he did.

I was curious to find out more and suspected that I’d find his work really useful, but I couldn’t quite bring myself to arrange the call.

Every time I thought about talking to him, I got another round of internal chatter about why that wasn’t a good idea.

I told myself:

“I won’t know what to say”

“I can’t quite put into words what I’m struggling with, and I don’t know what to ask so I don’t want to waste his time”.

“He might try to sell to me and I won’t be able to get out of it.”

“I’ll feel awkward and I won’t know how to end the conversation.”

Out trickled an endless stream of my own ‘stories’.

It ended up with me not contacting someone who could quite possibly have helped me with something in my business.

Do you recognise yourself in this scenario?

Can you understand how someone might feel that way?

But wait, there’s more!


Manage your Energy as a Sensitive Introvert …

Do you ever feel overwhelmed and guilty at the same time?

Guilty that you ‘should’ be able to get more done in a day?

Guilty that you’ve fallen behind ^again^?

As sensitive introverts it’s easy for us to feel overwhelmed, with our energy fragmented – our internal and external environment can throw up all sorts of obstacles in our way.

This prevents us from feeling peaceful and calm, and makes ‘getting stuff done’ in our business even harder.

We can become overwhelmed by our inner critic, our inner perfectionist, even our own ‘rules’ about what we ‘should’ be able to do in a day.

External factors like the amount of noise around us (too little?, too much?) the temperature and the views/opinions of others can tip us over the edge into overwhelm.

When what you really want is peace, tranquility AND to be able to get stuff done – what’s the solution ?

But wait, there’s more!

When we think about showing up and being visible in our business, all sorts of fears and unhelpful thoughts can pop into our awareness.

 

It was a real pleasure to interview the lovely Helen Evans recently, to get her unique view on how changing our perspective can make it safer for us to be visible.

Helen described how it’s useful to imagine looking at our lives through the ‘metaphor’ of a diamond with many facets.

As as introvert in business, the idea of going to a networking event can often fill us with dread ….

Thoughts might be swirling around our brain such as…

What will I say to people?

Will I look stupid?

Will I get overwhelmed ?

Will anyone be interested in what I do?

In this 3 minute video I share with you a simple exercise you can do to take the pressure off, and allow you to change your state to one that is more empowering, in the moment.

Whatever state you want to be in (eg confident, relaxed, motivated, energised), you can use this exercise to bring back the memory of a time when you were feeling that really strongly, and use that memory in the present moment.

But wait, there’s more!
