Learning how to trust yourself is the foundation of accepting and believing in yourself. You have big goals –and you will need self-trust to get you there.
It is DAY 3 of the 12 Days of Blissness —
and I kicked off the day in kickboxing class.
Well, kickboxing kicked my booty.
Like you may or may not have heard me say, I am in the BOTTOM 50% of BOTH my kickboxing and yoga classes.
This is not easy because I have created a pattern and a standard of winning in my business.
But being a beginner and future winner in anything requires vulnerability,
RISK and being willing to SUCK.
So I keep showing up.
I feel like a loser du jour at times in both yoga and kickboxing when everyBODY seems more flexible and athletic than I am — but I AM my ONLY competition.
I had to learn to TRUST myself.
So tonight I had promised a live video tonight, BUT my post kickboxing but-kicked BODY said, “NO BOO!!!” lol
And I TRUST MYSELF.
Save yourself — in mind, body and spirit — and you will live to save others another day, got it?
How to Trust You More
You may have a difficult time trusting yourself. Don’t despair. You are not alone. It is something that many of us experience, and find difficult to overcome. Broken promises to ourselves repeated depletes self-trust.
To help you overcome this, focus on key aspects of trust.
The first is to have faith in your magic, your accomplishments, like we talked about of the FIRST day of BLISSNESS. If you shrug off your accomplishments as not being that important, you interrupt the process of trusting yourself.
You also need to trust your instincts. You won’t always be right, but you will be more often than not. An instinct is something you feel strongly about and does not come only from experiences. They come from something internal that no one can truly explain. It’s part of that inner voice that is telling you what to do. You need only listen.
How many times have you said to yourself that you should have TRUSTED to your instincts?
Allow yourself to be supported by other people.
If you open yourself up to letting others into your life, you will find that you become more trusting of yourself. Whether you like it or not, we ALL need other people. You can’t know everything there is to know about every subject. Use the strengths of others to supplement what you know. It will take the burden away from you to do everything. That will help open the possibilities to put trust in yourself.
Try to filter out negative information.
We get bombarded with this. Negative info comes at us every day in the news, at work, and in many cases, your home. The more you learn to focus on positivity in your life, the easier it will be to trust yourself. A good first step towards this goal is to avoid negative people in our personal lives.
Trusting yourself sometimes requires a leap of faith.
While you want to be smart regarding the risks of your choices, you don’t want to overanalyze every decision you make. If you do, you will never make any decisions, and you will stagnate, nevaaaa move forward and be hopelessly STUCK.
It’s true that not everything will work out the way you plan. But, like all good aunties say, you will never know unless you try.
