For most of us Highly Sensitive Entrepreneurs (HSEs) we are used to compromising to the point of extinction – of ourselves, that is.
This is the HSE Shadow of People-Pleasing. When we are in our Shadow we are operating under the Limiting Belief that just because we can intuit what another person needs that this means we should provide it for them. Even if we have to turn ourselves into a pretzel to make it happen.
Not only is this Limiting Belief not true, it is massively destructive to your business.
And, honestly, even more than that, it’s a demonstration to the Universe that you don’t trust.
You don’t trust that this other person can take care of themselves.
You don’t trust that you can set boundaries and still be safe.
You don’t trust that the Universe can handle it without you swooping in like Bat Girl to save the day.
Okay, great, so now what? Now, it’s about practice.
Beginning to practice doing the opposite of what you would usually do.
Just as you are about to dive into your pretzel twisting circus act instead, ASK.
YOU: What do you need from me in this moment?
YOU: What’s another possibility?
YOU: What do you see as the bigger solution here?
Over and over again until a new muscle forms, a new way is born and you’re walking the way of Business Miracles. 🙂
