How to Embrace Your Introvertedness

This year, I have fully embraced my introverted self. And I see the strengths that introverts have and use to emerge from the shadows of their minds to rise as successful entrepreneurs.

One thing that has helped me continue forward and make progress is having clarity on who I am and where my business is going.  "Clarity preceeds mastery" as Robin Sharma says.

I just started reading, "High Performance Habits," by Brendon Burchard. The first habit he talks about is Clarity. “Clarity on who you are is associated with overall self-esteem. This means that how positive you feel about yourself is tied to how well you know yourself.”

If you are an introvert embrace it!  Fighting it and wishing you could just be more extroverted will hold you back.  In fact, introversion is a trait you are born with. 

The first step to embracing your superpower:  introversion, is gaining clarity.

Steps to take for more Clarity

  • At the beginning of each quarter, I do a “blue sky day.”  I get a massage or exercise, treat myself to lunch (alone,) and then spend an hour or two journaling about the previous quarter and the next 90 days.
  • Hire a coach or two.  Because I work from home and am a solopreneur, it's all too easy to get caught up in the swirling thoughts in my head.  Being able to talk through my ideas and challenges with someone provides a lot of clarity.  I talk with them at least once per month.
  • Keep a weekly to do list.  Mine sits on my desk on top of my planner so I see it each and every day.  On Fridays, right before I shut down for the day, I review my list and create a new list for the following week.  A lot of people like to do their weekly planning on Sundays.  And that's great too!  I just find the tasks are more fresh in my mind after working on them all week.  So Friday works best for me.  The important part is getting a weekly "to do" list written out!


The second step to embrace your introvertedness is to silence the noise...literally and figuratively!

Steps to reduce noise and distraction

  • Silence your phone.  Put it on silent and put it face down.  If you're like me, you work with your phone right beside you.  And while it may be on silent, it still lights up with every text, FB & IG notification, etc.  Just begging for you to pick it up!  So, put the screen face down and focus on the task at hand.
  • Hire a babysitter.  Maybe you're losing your mind because your kid(s) haven't stopped talking for the past 2 hours.  Or maybe you have a child who simply won't play in a separate room while you work.  (Ahem, like my daughter.)  Hiring a babysitter is crucial for getting alone time as well as being productive with your to do list.  Many people hire a babysitter simply to go out in the evenings.  But since us introverts often like to be home anyway, use a babysitter during the day.

Introverts have so much to contribute to society.  When you embrace your innate personality, you are being true to yourself.  So, while you can learn skills to ask for sales, attend networking events, and get comfortable on camera, you will always want alone time.  Honor that.  And build alone time into your schedule.  Embrace your introvert self!
