Why I Couldn't Trust Myself To Keep My Own Promises
I can’t trust myself to have cookies in the house.
I’ll sign up for that course & I’ll never finish it.
I keep meaning to eat better.
How many times have you said something like this to yourself?
But, I’d bet dollars to donuts that when someone else is counting on you to finish something you DO it.
Or when you say you’re going to show up somewhere you DO.
How would your friends or colleagues describe you? Dependable? Reliable? Trustworthy?
And yet the promises you make to yourself are dropped quickly as “life takes over”, right?
How many times have you skipped the gym because one of your kids called on your way home from work with a last minute project that needed a trip to Michaels?
Or your plan to leave the office on time today went out the window because your colleague dropped by your office just as you were starting to wrap up the day.
Or that blissfully free Saturday afternoon got eaten up because your sister wanted your help with her garage clean out.
This is why your friends trust you, but you don’t.
Other people’s priorities & needs take precedence over yours.
I get it.
You’re conscientious, your kind, & you don’t want to upset anyone.
So you put your plans aside & accommodate.
What if you had a friend who was always cancelling at the last minute. How would you feel about them?
THAT is how you feel about you when you don’t keep your commitments to yourself.
So many women in my community want to trust themselves.
But, they don’t see that the constant bailing on themselves is just like a friend who is a flake. You stop trusting them.
Deciding that your worth keeping your promises to yourself is possible.
AND it’s likely to stir up old beliefs & feelings about how you don’t matter as much as other people.
OR how it’s better (read into that easier) to let yourself down than someone else.
That’s where coaching comes in.
You have support & accountability while we tackle the BS AND create a plan to build trust with yourself.
