As a sensitive leader, I can lead a 90-minute coaching call for my Messenger Mastermind and be energetically DONE.
Even though it was a fantastic, connected session that brought tears and aha moments to my clients and enlivened, inspired, and fulfilled me.
I’m intense. Focused. In that hour and a half, I was fully present and gave my 100%. I left nothing on the table.
And after, I need to recharge.
In the past, I felt shame for that, for seemingly having a “lower” capacity than other leaders.
If you’re thinking, “me too,” it’s time for a reframe.
It’s not that you don’t have the capacity. It’s that your capacity goes deep rather than wide.
And you know what happens if you don’t honor your deep capacity, if you pretend you also have the capacity to go wide and just push through?
You get stuck circling the burnout / recovery loop. (Trust me, I know.)
The good news is that, if your capacity runs deep, you don’t also need to force yourself to go wide.
You don’t have to deplete yourself by engaging with thousands of followers for hours every day or be “popular” to make money as a coach or to make an impact in people’s lives.
You just need to reach the right people. And be able to communicate the core of your work and mission so your messaging calls in those people.
So then, how do you begin to go about honoring your true capacity? That’s what Episode 189 is all about.
