We only have the capability to make so many decisions in a day. Little daily tasks like choosing outfits or meals count towards this capacity to make decisions.
It is important to cultivate an environment where you trust yourself to make good decisions. If you trust your decision-making, you know that everything will be alright or that a good lesson will come from a bad decision.
Here are some ways to start trusting yourself.
Connect with your gut instinct, quiet your mind, find the voice of compassion and respect and listen to that voice. This skill takes practice, so keep at it.
Avoid people who weaken your self-trust. “Naysayers”
When you make a promise to yourself, keep it! When you don’t do something you say you are going to do, you slowly erode trust in yourself.
Be kind to yourself, don’t be an inner critic of yourself.
Forgive yourself when you make a mistake or make the wrong choice, and trust that you will make a better choice next time.
Keep a list of the times that you followed your instinct and note how it felt in your body. Use this as a feelings reference for future decisions.
Surround yourself with people who support and understand you. These people will encourage you to listen to yourself!
Just make that decision, trust yourself enough to know that you are making the right decision, and stop holding yourself back from getting things done.
