If there is one necessary skill you will need to survive the pandemic of 2020 as a Highly Sensitive Entrepreneur or Leader it is learning how to manage overwhelm.
Since this is one of the dominant Highly Sensitive Shadows it impacts everything in a Highly Sensitive’s life and business: relationships, marketing, vision, next level growth … you name it.
And here’s the real jiggy – it never goes away.
And that’s what gets most Highly Sensitives in trouble.
When it comes to overwhelm, untrained Highly Sensitives try to control it, stuff it, jam it, kick-box it, curse it, slam it, avoid it, pretty it, ignore it, and yet – there it still is.
Which only makes sense because the highly sensitive nervous system is wired to react to over-stimulation. And I think we can agree that these Exceptional Times of 2020, with its global pandemic and the ever growing racial unrest has been a constant source of over-stimulation.
BUT (and here’s the survival skill part) you CAN change your relationship to overwhelm.
And this is what I teach the members of my Highly Sensitive Leadership Training Programs to do.
Now, here’s the second real jiggy – with every next level you grow to as you step deeper into your Highly Sensitive Strengths, you will need to change your relationship to overwhelm.
It’s not like you learn how to manage overwhelm and then you’re the overwhelm zen master of all time.
Every new level of personal and/or business growth is going to give you a whole new level of learning when it comes to managing overwhelm – every. time.
This is what it means to be a Highly Sensitive Leader in your business and your life and as long as you’re willing to accept that this is the ride you’re on then you’re good!
Of course, you want to get some solid training and mentoring support in place for the whole ride as well – for sanity sake and for speeding through those moments when you want to throw in the towel.
