Trusting ourselves is one of the greatest challenges, especially if we are conscientious.
Because we know all the things we have done wrong in the past, because we are acutely aware of all of our impure motivations, because we are keenly sensitive to all the harsh judgments we have witnessed our whole lives, trust in oneself may be hard to come by.
Can we trust ourselves enough not to second guess our choices?
Can we trust ourselves enough to know that our intentions are good, if not pure?
Can we trust ourselves enough to believe in our dreams even when no one else does?
Can we trust ourselves enough to keep going when everything seems to be against us?
Trust is built slowly, one baby step at a time. First, let’s start with trusting ourselves that we are showing up the best that we can.
Then, let’s trust ourselves to walk the path in front of us, first slowly, then trusting we can pick up the pace.
Then, how about we learn to trust not only our choices and our decisions, but our ideas, our connections, and our leadership as well?
We can build trust in ourselves, if we are willing to start small, count every little victory, and then keep our focus on all the things we do right.
Repeat after me, “I trust myself!”
