Do you second guess yourself?
Do you not tell others what you think, because you are afraid you are wrong, silly, or even stupid?
Are you willing to no longer tolerate this behavior?
Are you ready to be YOU?
What’s the relationship you want to have with yourself?
You realize your lack of self-trust is problematic in your life … your relationships suffer, your work suffers and you really don’t like yourself.
You want to trust yourself.
You know if you trust yourself, you would:
- Show up more in your life.
- Go after what you really want.
- Ask for what you want.
- Acknowledge what you like and don’t like.
This means other people would actually know you.
Are you ready to start trusting yourself?
Here’s what to do.
Start by giving yourself permission that you get to decide. You are an adult after all.
Know others can have a different point of view and you can still trust yourself.
Commit to being reliable to yourself. Treat yourself the way you treat appointments/commitments with others.
Create a practice of reflection. This will allow you to evaluate what you did well and what needs improvement.
Be compassionate with yourself as you will make mistakes and by reflecting you can then own what you did and decide what you will do next time.
Be willing to do hard things over doing the easy things. We all want to escape into the easy … but when we do, we are out of alignment with our own personal integrity.
Be gracious towards yourself.
Understand that trust must be earned – even with yourself.
Practice these steps and you will cultivate a relationship of self-trust.
By trusting yourself you will enjoy being with yourself and you will let others see and get to know the real you.
By trusting yourself you will be able to show up confidently in your workplace.
I invite you to stop tolerating the distrust you have and instead cultivate your own self-trust.
