There is a pervasive symptom of the Highly Sensitive Entrepreneur (HSE) Coping Mechanism of Hiding that I tend to see a lot and that is the “I need one more certification” syndrome or otherwise known as (by me) the “I’m Not Enough” syndrome.
This is when our highly sensitive love of learning gets twisted, tangled and turned inside out working against us rather than for us.
It’s when you’re insistent that you need one more certification or training course before you can actually start your business or work with more clients.
And this, of course, is NOT true.
For a few reasons …
1) HSEs tend to be some of the most educated (self or otherwise) people on the planet. Trust me, you know enough.
2) You are already naturally coded to be an excellent coach, healer or creative entrepreneur. The skills required are innate. So, you don’t need to gather more coaching, healing or creative training. When it comes to your skills, you are enough.
3) The piling on of certification and trainings is a way to avoid, to hide, from what you most need to be giving your energy to: having HSE Selling Conversation after HSE Selling Conversation until your practice is full and your bank account is flowing.
And not one more level of reiki or NLP training, angel course or coaching certification can do that for you.
You’ve got to be willing to go right into the fire – to step into the marketing and selling. The good news is that when you learn to market and sell in a way that is designed and effective for you as a highly sensitive that fire doesn’t actually feel that hot. 🙂
This is then you being a Highly Sensitive Leader® in your business and your life.
