Drop Your Introvert Label and Delight Yourself with Peace and Success

Karyn Kulenovic invited me to participate in The Integrated Empath Summit earlier this year. Drop Your Label and Delight Yourself with Peace and Success fell into place with this theme for me as a subject for introverts to hear.

Both extroverts and introverts can be empaths with their sensitivity and creativity often being held back instead of released.

If as Kulenovic says, you’re going to use your “unique gifts, and create your success stories personally and in business,” you may have to drop your label.

Two marriage friendly ways for wives to stop controlling their husbands

Does your hairdresser ever give you advice as you talk through a situation with her? Or maybe she asks for your ideas or thoughts on an issue? Mine does both. She’s a skilled listener and a curious person.

A couple of years ago she asked me if I knew the Bible tells us women are going to be a controlling nuisance to our husbands.

Two-Marriage-friendly-Ways-for-Wives-to-Stop-Controlling-their-HusbandsGenesis 3:16

16 Then he said to the woman,

“I will sharpen the pain of your pregnancy, and in pain, you will give birth.

And you will desire to control your husband, but he will rule over you.”

Ever since that time I’ve wondered if or how we can find at least two marriage friendly ways for wives to stop controlling their husbands. We certainly don’t have to learn every lesson with our mistakes. So let me share some of my own!

The Introvert’s Guide to Happy Socializing in Coworking Space

A shared office space is an increasingly common workspace solution that many business professionals are taking advantage of. This is a type of co-working space that is affordable for contractors, entrepreneurs, and others. It gives you access to professional services, amenities, and equipment that you may otherwise have to pay a fortune for. More than that, it also gives you the ability to make great business connections with others in affiliated fields.

Mark 4:21-22

Instead of trying to be something different why not use your personality to stand out from others? In preparing for a guest speaker program, not all ideas make it to the platform. But as with a couple of events in my husband’s and my life, just because some movie moments make it to the cutting room floor, hardly means they are wasted.

Sometimes, to stand out, you may find you try too hard or go too far. It’s difficult to say in my coaching experiences, how many of those of us more introverted may have claimed something like, “If only I were more extroverted.” That can be extreme. Going to the extreme is not always the best way to make yourself stand out from others.

Instead of trying to be something different why not use your personality to your advantage? Why not incorporate your traits and characteristics and use them to get noticed? After all, with half of us having a more introverted preference, if you disguise yourself, no one can benefit from your value.[Continue Reading…]
