Let’s talk about a lack of belief in yourself.
Over the years, you may have eroded your own self-trust because:
You’ve said yes to things that you don’t actually want to do, then tried to trick yourself into believing you wanted to do them. You’ve taken on other people’s “shoulds,” even when they don’t fit for you. You’ve ove-scheduled yourself in a way that couldn’t possibly get done. You’ve made plans, broken them, and then felt too guilty to really investigate what happened and why. You’ve accepted your negative emotions without question, and used them as reasons to quit. You’ve told yourself, “This will be easy” and “I should know how to do this,” when neither was true. You’ve justified your decision to work on low-value, low-impact things.
You’ve set yourself up to fail, and then gotten mad at yourself for failing. Wild, eh?
So it makes sense that you would be experiencing an erosion of self-trust. But it’s repairable.
In my 8-week program, Half-Finished to Done, LIVE, I will help you rebuild your self-trust.
Self-trust is eroded one decision at a time…and it’s rebuilt one decision at a time.
By creating a realistic, doable schedule. By being willing to evaluate when you don’t follow through as intended. By setting goals that challenge you—then showing up to achieve them, while also allowing room for failure. By both accepting your negative emotions and being willing to question them. By owning your strengths, desires, and preferences, and acting on them. By lovingly calling yourself out on doing low-value things, and redirecting your attention. By deciding that every obstacle is solvable, as long as you stay in the arena.
Here’s the critical first decision: Decide that you are capable of rebuilding trust with yourself, starting right now.
