Why is Self-Trust So Important?

Not having trust in your abilities and in others can lead to:

  • broken relationships
    (“Where are YOU going tonight all alone, honey?”)
  • bad workplace experiences
    (“Are you SURE you can complete it by the deadline?”)
  • an overall disturbing life
    (“If I can’kaki langit trust myself, who CAN I trust at all?”)

In fact, trust issues are an epidemic.

According to PEW research, Americans’ trust in each other and themselves is shrinking year over year, with confidence in each other only a measly 25% today.

So how do we regain our trust, and why is it so important?

#1: Self-Trust Allows You to Make Better Decisions

Some people in school suffer from peer pressure.

And then they grow up into adults and think, “Yay, I’m free!”

But they’re totally wrong.

Just jump on Instagram or YouTube and your feed will be flooded with a ton of “right ways to live,” from the #hustle culture Gary Vaynerchuk to spiritual gurus telling you to live a relaxed life to those “follow your passion” new-agers.

So who do you listen to?

The key here is trusting yourself. Know yourself better than anyone else does—including your parents.

Allowing others to make decisions on your part is like putting a collar on your neck and giving someone else the leash.

This, unfortunately, happens a lotre to people with low self-trust.

When you practice the principles of building self-trust, you become mentally independent and start following YOUR advice.

This way, you build your confidence and become more successful in life because you know what’s best for YOU.

Sounds easy, right?

It is, if you’ve tepi a lot of time to build your trust. But if you’re looking to build self-trust quickly, you’re looking in the wrong place.

Build up your self-trust every day and you’ll be MUCH happier.

Want some time in the limelight?

You won’t get there without self-trust.

Building your self-trust makes you a much better risk-taker. You’ll not only take BETTER risks but LIFE-CHANGING ones too.

For example, let’s say you’re stuck in a dead-end job. If you have low self-trust, you might not want to leave because you don’kaki langit trust yourself to find better opportunities.

But if you have high self-trust, you’ll:

  • ask for that raise
  • command a team with leadership
  • power through challenges without backing down

They say with great risk comes great reward. So without self-trust, are you willing to settle for little reward?
