HOW TO BUILD TRUST WITHIN YOURSELF
Building trust within ourselves is key when we are on a road to rebuild and redesign our lives. The reality is you’re not just redesigning your life, but your redesigning yourself. We have to dig deep to reconstruct our thinking and orienting our hearts. Once we do this, we capture a true reflection of ourselves. To capture who you were really meant to be, you must build trust with yourself. Follow these three steps to get you off to a great start.
1. DO THE HARD THINGS
Life is full of obstacles and hardships. When we do have time to decompress and let go, its tempting to be complacent. However, complacency doesn’t help us get any further or grow. The hard things that we tend to neglect are the often the areas we need the most growth.
I used to struggle communicating directly with my husband. Sharing with him how I felt inside was painful and hard. One day I decided that if I wanted our relationship to grow, I would have to initiate the hard conversations. I learned to do hard things in my relationship. Now, I have reaped the benefits from having complicated dialogue and we’re in a better place.
2. DON’T BREAK THE PROMISES YOU MAKE TO YOURSELF
Many of us over extend by being superwoman/man for everyone else. By the time we take the cape off, we have nothing left for ourselves. We constantly break the promises we make to ourselves. I’m guilty of this. I used to put off my dreams, goals, and ambitions, constantly letting myself off the hook. It wasn’t until I watched Impact Theory on YouTube one day and the host, Tom Bilyeu, talked about the promises we make to ourselves. It dawned on me that day the reason I was not confident in myself. I was constantly breaking my own promises. Stop breaking your own promises. To help others, I’ve created a free quick guide to help write down and maintain our promises.

3. LIVE YOUR LIFE ON PURPOSE
Would you trust a chef to prepare your food without putting thought and preparation into the meal? I wouldn’t. So why should your life be any different? We have to live intentionally if we want positive outcomes. Yes, there are some things we can’t control. However, there are a ton of things we can. I refuse to let life happen to me. Walk away from everyone and everything for a moment. Assess where you are and where you want to go. Establish a plan on getting there, and go. Live your life with intention and purpose and over time you will find more credibility with yourself.
