Trust gives you freedom. When you trust, there’s nothing to worry about, nothing to plan, no decisions to make. So, what do you trust, and how do you trust?
Trust what people say about you
I chose the word “trust” as one of the three words I’ll work with in the coming year. Trust has several levels for me. I chose trust first of all because I need to learn to accept the positive things people say about me. And I have to trust these comments so much that I overcome my not-so-sure moments.
I’ve gone so far as to collect the positive statements all in one place. These comments, whether written or spoken, show me how others see me and how my work affects them. I need to trust that I’m as good as they say I am because, like most people, I sure have moments of self-doubt.
So, what good things do people say about you that you find hard to believe?
Trust yourself to make the right choice
The more self-aware you become, the more aligned will your choices be. A year ago, I learned that I prefer short projects so I avoid choosing long and involved ones. It took me a while to realize I needed to find an online community that was going in the same direction as I was.
When a choice presents itself, look at how you feel in the moment and make your choice. Remember, not making a choice is also a choice.
Trust the best outcome to unfold
Unfolding is my favorite way to trust. I trust life to unfold perfectly. I simply look at what shows up and I shape it in the way that fits the moment.
It’s such a relief not to think I have to manage things. I don’t try to make a decision before I have all the information. I don’t force a decision. I can wait for the best time.
I work to stay in the moment and trust myself to make the most informed decision – just as I trust the Universe to give me the perfect opportunities
I do trust myself. I trust myself to appreciate that I’m following my deepest calling, going wherever it’s taking me, like a leaf flowing down a river.
I trust my talents. And because I’m aware of the gifts I’ve been given, I keep putting them to good use.
I trust myself to keep looking deep within to understand what I need, why I need it and when I need it.
Trust takes the pressure off
When I trust the right circumstance to show up, and my ability to make the perfect choice, there isn’t much I need to do except notice what shows up. Sure, I might capture a few ideas, and somewhat prioritize them, but I’m also willing for that list to be totally and unexpectedly rearranged.
Trust builds confidence
The more you rely on your intuition and see how well it guides you, the more you trust it.
The more you trust your talent to produce good work – and it does – the more confidence you’ll have.
Float for a day. No plans, no lists, no schedule. Watch what shows up and notice how you feel about it. Mentally try on different scenarios before you make a choice. Notice how successful you are and how aligned your choice was. All because you decided to trust your intuition.
Notice, too, how many times you make the right choice. That builds trust in your ability to choose.
Trust your talent to produce the right work. And notice how often it does.
Notice what happens when people say nice things about you – do you allow those positive words to come in deeply enough to nourish you, or do you have some barrier to accepting kind words?
Test your abilities. Make a choice, and trust that you can repeat the process with another good choice.
Let go, make a decision in the moment, and learn to trust yourself.\
