“I can’t believe you did that. What a loser! You don’t belong here. You never will. You’ll never be able to get it right.”
These are words that most Highly Sensitive Entrepreneurs (HSEs) would never consider even thinking about a person, let alone uttering out loud to a person.
Except to ourselves.
Two HSE Shadows that can be a challenge to get a handle on: Self-judgement and Self-criticism. I get questions all of the time from my Business Miracles Mentoring Members about the difference between the two …
Self-judgement: all the ways you judge yourself for not measuring up to the other 80%.
Self-criticism: the voice you hear inside your head berating you for not measuring up to the other 80% (in our Business Miracles forums we use the acronym “SEV” to describe this which stands for “Super-Ego Voice”).
Neither one of these HSE Shadows is going to support you in building a successful business. Actually, these are the two that will take you out the fastest.
This is why we address them head-on from Day 1 in the Business Miracles Mentoring Programs. All so that you can be released from the prison of people-pleasing and chameleoning yourself to the supposed expectations of others.
And, most importantly, freed from the fear of judgement and from the worst critic you could ever encounter – yourself.
A step out of Littleness into Magnitude, knowing you are enough in all the highly sensitive ways you were made.
