When you trust yourself and what you believe, there is very little room for self-doubt. Also, others’ opinions or thoughts about you and the choices you made usually does not trouble you. Believing and trusting yourself is rewarding and fulfilling.
Growing up, most of us were told what to do and when to do it. As children, we were exposed to many adults, like parents and teachers that were busy showing us how to behave.Unfortunately, we were not taught or encouraged to be trustworthy.
Learning to trust myself did not come easy for me. Like most of you, I have lacked trust in myself most of my life.Whether it was in my capabilities either at work, home, or school, I did not have much faith in trusting myself. Self-Doubt was rampant.I was stuck in this endless depressive cycle until I encountered my training as a life coach.
Being coached during the training brought me in touch with the tools to gain an awareness into how my lacking self-trust was hurting me in all areas of my life. I have learned so much from mentors, trainers, spiritual guides and coaches. So, I want to share these insights, tools, experiences, and knowledge with you, as you continue to find ways to trust yourself.
Here are some suggestions to explore ways to build up your trust in yourself:
