We live in a world that increasingly promotes the ideology of being assertive and outgoing, sociable and even self-promoting, and if we are not that way, we are given the message that we need to fix ourselves, do some self-help (:-) and change! However, (and that’s a BIG however), studies now show, conclusively, that up to one third of us are actually introverts, and many more of us are only outgoing and sociable some of the time. So even if you, reading this, are a full on extrovert, you are bound to know many people who are not! Personally I can be both extrovert and introvert, so I was delighted to watch a great TED talk the other day actually promoting the power of introverts, with author Susan Cain. I invite you to check it out – it’s MOST enlightening! http://www.ted.com/talks/susan_cain_the_power_of_introverts.html
I am passionate about the power of emotions - and about children! As a coach, counselor, mother and grandmother, I write stories, and share quotes, recent science and how-to tips to help with feeling, doing, and being more of what we want - as individuals, parents, and/or managing others! I also write books, and founded Applied Emotional Mastery at the beginning of this century. I try to be what I want to see :-) and I love your feedback!
