How to Trust Yourself More and Empower Your Business
By Reggie Odom
Trust - or a lack of trust - impacts every area of your life and your life’s work. You must trust yourself in order to feel confident; to stand out and bring your business forward. To become more visible, to make your work and your business more visible so you can help more people and prosper, you have to trust yourself.
How do we develop trust - or greater trust - in ourselves? Self-trust is built one decision at a time.
Make a Decision. Making decisions is empowering. Ambivalence or wavering, hesitating or waiting to make important decisions erodes your self-trust and your power
Each time that you hold back from making a decision because of uncertainty or fear, you give yourself a disempowering message about you. Indecisiveness becomes a habit based in lack of self-trust. A lot of your precious time, energy and attention is lost on indecision.
Every time you make a decision you are freed up. Your energy is set free!
You are faced with thousands of business decisions every year. From what investments to make in you as a business owner, to what investments to make in your business, to what you offer through your business...
Make a Decision Based on What’s True for You. Trusting yourself grows by making decisions based on what is true for you. How do you tell? It feels right.
Even if it takes your breath, a decision that is in alignment with what’s true for you will feel right. Every one of these decisions that you make builds a pattern and a consciousness of self-trust.
To make a decision that builds self-trust - whether that is to do something, buy something, to take on a particular client, offer a program, price an offering, take a course or hire a coach - that decision needs to feel right for you.
Not partially right, or maybe right, but right. Not right for someone else, not right for the way you were taught, not right for you last year, but right for you, right now.
Three Actions You Can Take to Increase Your Self-Trust Now!
1. Write down all the pending decisions you haven’t made.
2. Take each one separately. Tune in to what’s true for you (what feels right?) and make each decision based on that. Then cross it off your list. It will feel great.
3. Make a decision to make 3 new and conscious business decisions each day. When you make this decision, the others will light up for you. Tune in with each one, and make the decision that is true for you.
Make decisions based on what is true for you! Each one will increase your self-trust and your self-confidence. It will change your life and change your business.
