How to Be a Badass (Even If You’re an Introvert)
Being introverted often turns into an excuse for not doing something. It’s so easy to use the introvert card to get out of something we don’t feel comfortable about.
Many people, not only Lightworkers, forget that being introverted is not a weakness or a limitation… unless you, of course, make it one. Being introverted is a superpower that helps you focus on your genius. Introverts are creative and often quite nerdy-geeks.
We live in a world that is very extroverted, and we are told to get out and about and not just sit at home “doing nothing”. However, introverts don’t “do nothing” when they are home. Some read, some play computer games, and others are writing or doing something creative, and so forth. We have a very vivid inner world and can easily entertain ourselves… in peace and quiet.
Going out and experiencing the world is fun, but we need time to recharge.
If you want to be happy, you need to do what makes YOU happy! – and being a badass can help you do that!
I define a Badass as someone who is assertive and dare to go after what she/he/they wants without having a guilty conscience. Think of Donna Paulsen from SUITS.
The difference between being assertive and arrogant is self-confidence and self-respect. When you are assertive, you have genuine self-confidence and self-respect, and you’re coming from your heart. When you are arrogant, you pretend to be self-confident to cover up the fact that you’re insecure and want to show everybody else that you’re better than them.
Assertive is genuine and authentic.
Arrogance is pretending and hiding your insecurity.
Tip #1 – Embrace Your Talents.
Everyone has talents, but most people are just too shy to embrace them or simply just write them off as “nothing special”!
It’s very easy to find your talents. Your talents are something you’re most passionate about and it comes easily to you.
Tip #2 – Respect Yourself and Energy!
What makes badasses to badasses is their self-respect. They want to be met with the same respect as others. If people don’t respect them, they leave.
Since introverts often are shy, and as Lightworkers, we don’t like conflicts and upsetting people, it’s easy to become a pushover. As I have mentioned many times before, one of Lightworkers’ most common personality traits is people-pleasing. People-pleasing also happens to be one of the main reasons why Lightworkers suffer from depression, stress and burnout.
Tip #3 – Respect Your Time!
It’s not enough to protect yourself and your energy – you also must protect your time. Time is the only thing in life you only would have once. You can manifest more money, you can manifest more relationships, you can manifest a new job… but you can not manifest more time. Now is all you have!
Tip #4 – You Don’t Owe Anyone Anything!
You do know you are allowed to fire your clients, right? You don’t have to help someone just because they pay you.
Suppose you don’t like to be around someone, or they are toxic. In that case, it’s your responsibility to end it as soon as possible… it doesn’t matter if it is a professional or personal relationship or connection – negative energy shouldn’t be allowed in your presence.READ THE FULL GUIDE
