You Can and You Will
If you’ve ever tried to lose weight, eat better, get up earlier, or start any new habit without success, you probably question whether you can. In other words, you don’t trust yourself.
If you want to make changes, you have to trust that you can and will.
I hear from clients and women in my community all the time that they don’t know how to trust themselves.
But you do know how trust is built and lost with others.
Do they keep their word? Are they dependable? Are they supportive? These are some of the building blocks to trust.
So why would trust in yourself be any different?
Do you keep your word? Are you dependable and supportive? My guess is yes, when there is another person involved. Usually that’s because we don’t want to be judged or disappoint anyone.
But, here’s the truth...no matter how dependable, reliable, or awesome you are you cannot control other people’s opinions of you.
So how about we focus on the one opinion that matters. YOURS.
Start using whatever measures you use to define trust in others with yourself.
Pick one small thing, commit to it, and then follow through like you would for someone else.
Make time for it, put it on your calendar, create reminders or do what you would normally do to follow through with a commitment. Only this time it is for you.
If you fall down, get back up and start again...just like you would do for any other commitment.
Do this enough and you will start to see that you can and you will.
I believe in you.
