Beliefs Thoughts and Myths
On Sunday I was planning what I wanted to write about this week. I often write about subjects which I can draw inspiration. This week I decided to write about self trust. The topic of trusting yourself sounds so simple. However, it can become complicated by the vast amounts of beliefs, thoughts, information, myths and research on the subject. Yesterday I wrote about the importance of self trust. Today I will list some beliefs, thoughts and myths that people have learned when it comes to trusting themselves.
- You were either born with it or you were not.
- Trusting yourself isn’t something you were born with, it’s a learned behavior. When nurtured self trust brings about the highest level of self-confidence and self truth.
- Men were not created to rely on his own understanding. I have a great fondness and respect for the Bible and my Creator. I’m grateful for our relationship. I also know that I am made in his image, Amen!
- Building your own personal relationship with the Creator will provide you all the knowledge and tools needed to lead the type of life you desire. My Creator has provided me all the things I need to be happy. I’m Grateful!
- Highly confidence people are arrogant and conceited.
- Highly confident people are leaders. They are the one’s that knocked on doors, and when they didn’t open, built new doors to go through. Without highly confident people we would still be living life as it was lived in the Stone Days. Trust in yourself as you trust in the 4 seasons. If you bother someone in the process of living your life, thats something that they have to deal with. Don’t sweat the small stuff.
- If I trust myself, I could make my predicament worse.
- No one knows better what predicament your in than you. Get honest with yourself and accept your past failures. Today is a new day, forget about the past and start living your life as you see it today. Understand that there is no opportunity without risk. Risk is a necessary prerequisite to building trust.
- Trust No One
- Only people who have learned to trust themselves are able to trust others. If you hear someone say and believe the statement “trust no one” be very leery, these people most likely don’t trust themselves”. Trust is the building block to self confidence, self love, self fulfillment, and happiness. We have to trust someone, for it is impossible for one to do all things.
Self doubt can paralyze us from moving. The goal is to move, move and move, take steps each day towards building a better you. You don’t have to train your mind at all. Your mind already believes that which you tell it. When negative beliefs and thoughts enter your mind about your trusting you, get them out immediately. Negative thoughts are like a fuel to a flame. When ignited they are difficult to put out. Tomorrow I will discuss how we can regain and maintain trust in ourselves.
My Life’s mission is to persevere through life’s experiences, to embrace life’s diversities and to endure life’s challenges for the purpose of teaching healing and empowering others to be their best. -Rhonda Davis-
