Every introvert who wants to ignite their own quiet power will get so much out of Shhh... by Katherine Mackenzie-Smith. Here are 5 of my favourite things I took away from it, plus an opportunity for you to win a FREE copy! http://oneinfinitelife.com/shhh-by-katherine-mackenzie-smith/

Katherine Mackenzie-Smith completely understands what it’s like to be an introvert — and because of that — to feel like you don’t belong, that there’s something “wrong” with you, and that you’re not good enough.

Which is why I was beyond thrilled when she released her eBook Shhh… An Introvert’s Guide to Creating Inner Peace, Outer Calm, and an Exceptionally Beautiful LifeSeriously, I love Katherine’s work so much that I bought the eBook before I’d even read a single word on the sales page (which I never do!).

Shhh… will help you fully embrace who you are, own and honour your unique energy and ultimately find your own way to shine — it really is the ultimate guide for introverts!

I truly believe that every introvert who wants to ignite their own quiet power will get so much out of this eBook, and today I’m sharing 5 of my favourite things I learnt from reading Shhh…

WHAT I’VE TAKEN AWAY FROM SHHH…

BY KATHERINE MACKENZIE-SMITH

 

1. To own my introverted energy. This eBook really emphasises getting to know and understand yourself, so that you can own your unique energy. Even though I was already aware of my introverted nature Shhh… helped me to bring more attention and awareness to my energy and to recognise when I feel energised and drained. Knowledge really is power with this stuff and my understanding of the way I work has been really empowering.

 

2. To create beautiful boundaries that serve me. Boundaries are something that can be restrictive and counter-productive when it comes to honouring your introverted nature. I know I went a little over the top with this when I first discovered I was an introvert (more on that here), so what I love about this eBook is that it guides you in setting boundaries in a way that is empowering and helps you to honour your nature, but not be restricted by it.

 

3. To not let introversion hold you back. This is honestly something I have definitely fallen in the trap of doing in the past as well. So I love that Shhh… emphasises honouring your introversion, but also not hiding behind it, or allowing it to disempower you, or to use it as an excuse. One of my favourite part of this eBook is that it has (and continues to) help me expand my comfort zone and to actively not hold myself back because I’m an introvert.

 

4. To let go of the stories that are no longer serving me. Shhh… does a really good job of helping you work out what stories and beliefs need to gently let go of in order to honour your introversion. As introverts we often have a lot of experiences where we have been criticised or had negative experiences from being misunderstood or overlooked. A big one for me when it came to this was letting go of the guilt of saying no in order to honour myself.

 

5. To find my own way to shine. Every single one of us has our own unique power and being an introvert doesn’t mean you can’t shine in your own way. By understanding and honouring your unique energy and staying true to yourself, you can be empowered by your introversion and not let it hold you back. This eBook and it’s exercises will guide you in finding your own unique way to shine. As Katherine says:

 

“When you live your life from this place, you will be amazed to see what is possible for you.” twit-bird

  • Layla

    To find my own way to shine. I’m a bit “different” and have tried so hard to fit into the square hole everyone is xp cuts me to. I know I have lots to offer but not in the way most folks expect.

    • Love it, Layla! Good luck with finding your own way to shine <3

    • Hey there Layla, I love that you resonated with that lesson the most. It’s one that for a long time I didn’t think was possible for me, but I now know for sure that it’s possible for anyone (introvert or not) to find a way to shine in their own unique way. I wish you all the best in doing this. As Susan Cain says “Everyone shines, given the right lighting.” Also, I love that you own that you are different, it really is our uniqueness that makes us who we are.

  • Thanks so much for supporting me and the eBook, Chloe! So beautiful of you to share what you learnt from it and to spread the introvert message far and wide.

    • It is my pleasure Katherine. I absolutely love the work you are doing with introverts and it has made such a profound difference in my own life. Thank you for being apart of Introvert Week 🙂

  • Hi Chloe! I love your insights, especially number 5 – finding your own unique way to shine. We get so caught up with comparing ourselves to other people online that we forget to remain true to ourselves and our purpose. It’s a great reminder that we can’t be anyone other than ourselves, so own it! Xxx

    • I love everything you have shared here Amanda. I really resonate with #5 as well, I think playing in the online world can be really challenging when it comes to comparison and feeling inadequate, and then on the other hand I also see that there’s is an opportunity for each and every one of us to put ourselves out there and shine in our own individual and unique way. What a time we live in! Also, I am like ??? to your last line, love it! Thank you for sharing your thoughts Amanda ?
