Are You Aware of 3 Mistakes Keeping You in the Desert-like Introvert Conversation?

Is it lack of confidence? Maybe you don’t have an interest? Could it be you are afraid of some failure? Call it what you want but we can often make conversation mistakes because of anxiousness or anxiety about ourselves, rather than not taking full advantage of who we are authentically.

My husband and I took a desert tour in Arizona a few years ago. Some tips on making it out alive if you had to can also help us out of any introvert desert-like conversation. Not paying attention to what we might consider doing differently next time can keep up feeling like we’re in that desert.

Do you have actions you do even though you don’t “feel” like it? Maybe you are thinking of making your bed – you do it, but you aren’t all into it. Or you think of doing laundry and – you aren’t all into it either, but you do it. Well, then you know how to get from the desert to an oasis.

Let’s avoid a panic over these fears.

How Are You Allowing Blogging to Expand Your Abundance?

more-abundanceDon’t we want our blogging to attract followers, fans, commenters and customers? Attracting anyone like this, and more types of results are welcome in plentiful numbers.

Plentiful is the operative word. Plentiful being abundant and life it could be – joy, peace, health, security, wealth or you name what is you want more.

Best actions and mindset for Abundance always grab my attention. When Denis Roberts, CEO of Business Coaching for Premium Coaches told me about his new, Group Coaching With Friends For Abundance, my curiosity kicked in. I’ve known Denis through LinkedIn for several years now. Once we talked, I felt I must interview him for you to learn about this.

Many of you know me from a popular LinkedIn group, Bloggers Helping Bloggers. When I heard the description of this new group coaching, it sounded close to what we expect from those collaborative groups. Denis has what he calls is a slight shift.

I wondered about coaches who might want to know what Denis does differently as a coach, and how he’s filling the gap of traditional coach training.

Is Your Niche Blogging Attracting and Growing Your Online Reach as Much as You Want?

Thank you for making the last month more of an oasis for this introvert’s blogging efforts.

Often it can be either a desert or an oasis with online social media visibility. We can blog consistently, offer valuable and unique content, and can still think or feel, “Is this reaching more people?” Or even, “Where am I going with this blogging?”

Or is that just me? If it is, then you are way ahead of me.

Two unexpected and different kinds of recognition each arrived with their gifts. I don’t know quite what to make of it.

Most bloggers want to grow their reach.

But maybe you don’t care about recognition. It’s might be hard to believe an introvert would thrive in the limelight of it. But maybe in my situation it’s my award winning sales background that causes me to do a happy dance when winning something comes my way.

5 Top Weekly Blog posts, week 9, from #Introvert Inspirer

With the wealth of articles and blog posts, it’s impossible to read everything of interest within the time dedicated to these findings.

But, fortunately, some things on the Internet are still free.

In a coaching ezine I have been receiving for at least five years, something caught my eyes in their notification that their ezine would no longer continue to be free.

Years ago almost everything online was free. Today, commercialization and advertising dominate.

Except for blogs mostly, I’d say this is reality. Likely that could be interesting reading for one or more blog posts.

Here’s what I found of interest this week. And truthfully, not too much of added value in the introvert realm.

How to Make #Introvert Traveling the Best Experience

Recently my family and I traveled to Italy, Germany and Luxembourg. This trip was my husband and my first time to holiday with our son and his family.

I often hear about how traveling with friends and family is not all that good for the more introverted. That was not my finding at all.

We had a magnificent family vacation, and I have to believe it would be the same wherever we might do so again.

What Introvert Assets Are Like Your Femur Bones?

introvert-femur-boneIn a LinkedIn post, Are You Using Your Introversion As Your Achilles Heel Or An Excuse? the point of the analogy was to avoid making excuses for being more of an introvert. It’s not a weakness at all to be more introverted.

If you’re not using your introversion as an excuse or find it to be your Achilles Heel, bravo!

Now let’s compare the reality that is, your introversion is your strongest asset. It’s like your femur bone.

Many authorities claim the femur bone, the only bone in the thigh, is the longest and strongest bone in the human body. Just as this is with the body, my thinking is that our introversion is our strongest personality preference on its own and weighed in with who we are overall.

Let me suggest at least three ways we might find our introversion to be our femur bone. Then we can eliminate any lingering self-doubt from, “woe is me I’m more of an introvert.”[Continue Reading…]

Introvert: Are Your Tendencies or You in Charge?

Are you guilty of using your introversion as your Achilles heel or an excuse for not doing something?

Most recently I published a post on LinkedIn about why we might be better off not knowing we are more introverted.

Then my thinking continued to how to use what we know to be true of us to create our reality.

Stated another way, people tend to create their outer world because it’s how thoughts and feelings bounce around inside of them.

5 Top Weekly Blog posts, week 7, from #Introvert Inspirer

Once a week I post some of my favorite blog posts. In the spirit of what we have in common as different personality types I am confident even if you are more extroverted, that some of this week’s posts will be of interest to you.

Social media and trust.

SEO with Google and Twitter.

Living minimally – wow is this inspiring.

Managing the feeling of overwhelm.

Gratitude – if you already practice daily gratitude like I do, this will reinforce the habit. If you have not yet, the proof is waiting for you now.
