How to boost self-trust is worth talking about because it’s the key component to everything in life. You see, we often talk about trusting others and trusting the process, but what about trusting ourselves? The crazy thing is that we are taught to not trust ourselves from a young age and that breeds fear, doubt and low self confidence.
What is self trust?
What gets in the way?
Let’s talk about two things that really get in the way – self sabotage and self abandonment. The first one leads to the other, which means we deliberately destroy and damage ourselves and then give up all concern, which then results in lack of self-trust. Both are powerful negative actions that go against self-trust making our lives unfulfilled.
We do this in our personal life and in our business/career life. Often, we don’t even realize we’re doing this to ourselves, so awareness is key and then taking action to build self-trust is an ongoing process. We often believe the stories we’ve told ourselves. This holds us back from the life and success we desire. And most of all, we don’t connect with our heart as often as we could.
How to boost self-trust?
Take time for yourself.
This is where you focus on your intention and really getting into alignment with your core values. I recommend you start each morning with a mindfulness meditation and then make yoga part of your day. It’s about getting in touch with the real you and going deep into your heart. Take time to journal and reflect on what you want. Ask yourself questions, like: “what is my heart saying?” or “what am I really feeling?” and “how do I honour myself today?” Bring self care into your weekly routine, you deserve it!
Cheer yourself on.
Avoid negative people.
Don’t let negative people into your life and especially those who shame and blame you. And if you have to deal with them, create boundaries. This will help you stand up for yourself so you can be in control of your own self esteem and self worth. Build up a support system of friends and family who love you and will be there for you, so that you can get through the triggers and tough days. We need each other and finding your tribe is one of the best ways to boost your self-trust.
