How To Turn Your Shyness Into Superpower?
Shyness Into Superpower
What Exactly is Shyness?
It’s an awkwardness you have when you are around other people.
It’s NOT the same as introversion; You can be extrovert, introvert or ambivert, and be shy at the same time.
The pre-requisite for shyness to happen, is that you have a keen awareness and sensitivity to energies around you.
Which means, very probably, you are a highly sensitive person (HSP) or/and an Empath.
That’s why when you are not grounded with your energy, you can easily let other people’s energy throw you off-board.
At times, it could feel like other people’s energy are arrows shooting towards you.
However, if you can use this sensitivity to support you, socialising with the right people can become very enjoyable!
You might ask, “Isn’t shyness a confidence issue?”
Yes, confidence is part of the equation on whether you have the trust in yourself to be able to:
1. Differentiate which energy is yours and which is not (very critical!!!) and
2. MANAGE the intuitive information you gain from others through your empathetic ability, and channel them into useful information (vs feeling overwhelmed by them)
These are just skills that you can learn and master!
And when you finally master these skills, you can definitely become the most influential person in the room with your empathetic talent!
Do You Have Empathic Superpower?
Feeling weird whenever you enter a room full of people?
Like there is a mixture of powerful chaotic energies hanging in the air that feels overwhelming for you to breathe properly?
Sometimes it’s REALLY about the lack of fresh air in that air-con room ( poor us city people – fresh air is actually FREE!!!)
But more probably, you are right – you have THAT superpower to tap into the information that every person in the room is sending out!
You Can Be A Mindreader And Bullshit Detector
Admit it, you can read people ‘s mind and are always able to pick up what is UNSAID.
Think back to a time when you had a yucky feeling while chatting with someone charismatic, and not long afterwards you found out he was lying.
One of the core reason of shyness is that this powerful detector is on 24/7 and when you don’t know what that is, you could get overwhelmed by the information overload. Which is why you tend to avoid the crowd!
But when you know HOW to use this superpower to your advantage, these can be powerful intelligence when you use them in beneficial ways!
DATA IS THE NEW GOLD in this era. So you definitely have the upper hand!
The way to turn shyness into superpower, is to first open up yourself to relate to others, so that you can accurately decide if those are the people who vibe with you or not.
Just because you can tap into what others think and feel, it doesn’t mean you have to lose yours and bend yourself just to fit in.
Quite the opposite.
No wonder you can see so many “shy” people become top sales; and those reclaimed artists, musicians, CEOs when they can finally EMBRACE that part in them and just do things in their own way regardless, they can have a huge influence to the public.
EMBRACE YOUR SHYNESS AND SENSITIVITY.
LOVE THEM, AND INTEGRATE THEM INTO YOUR LIFE!
