When it comes to your life and business, there are many situations that lead to the feeling of being stuck. You might have fear of moving forward and taking the next step. There might be uncertainty in your situation. Perhaps you loop in indecision or second-guess yourself and backtrack.
Beneath all of these scenarios is a deeper issue: a lack of self-trust.
Self-trust isn’t just a “feel good” topic. It directly impacts your productivity.
When you don’t trust yourself, you hesitate to take action and second-guess decisions. Each time you revisit decisions or stall on moving forward, you drain energy and time from the other things you want to do.
This leads you to feel stuck.
Have you ever noticed that some people have an unshakeable sense of self-trust, while others seem to be endlessly mired in decision loops and can’t move forward?
How do you get self-trust? How do you instill self-trust in others?
Here’s the thing: self-trust is not something you can get.
Self-trust is something you cultivate. It grows over time.
It comes from recognizing that you have the skills and knowledge that you need to achieve the results you desire.
Self-trust cannot be taught, but it can be nurtured. It grows in the soil of time and experience.
Whether you’re a parent, a manager, a trainer, or a coach, your job is to create an environment in which self-trust can grow.
This is the job of all leaders.
