Have you ever looked at someone or listened to them speak and thought, “wow, they have a lot of confidence?”
It’s said the world is separated into two types of people, the introverted listeners and the extroverted leaders – but what if I told you that the power of who we are, what we can be and what we can achieve actually lies in our own self-trust?
It really does boil down to confidence in who we are and what we can achieve that makes us successful in our lives.
Want to know how trusting ourselves blossoms into a successful life? Read more from Perth Coach, Conrad Francis to find out.
Why do we shy away from self-trust?
Self-trust, in simple terms, is a willingness and dedication to believe in yourself.
Yet a willingness to believe in ourselves indicates some degree of risk involved – a thought that deters many of us.
If you’re still reading, and anxious to walk the tightrope of risk, let me break it down further.
Many people, including even myself as a Perth life and business coach sometimes struggle with:
- Negative thoughts about ourselves
- Keeping a brave face at all times
- Pushing aside emotions rather than facing them.
In my own life and many of my Perth coaching work, I’ve discovered people don’t want to lose control even for a second, for to let go would surely, most definitely and catastrophically guarantee our world would crumble down around us.
We often shy away from self-trust because we stick to what’s ‘safe,’ worry what others may say, and the big bad ‘F’ word…’ failure.’
When you’re down and out and need a Perth coach to inspire you – it’s time to look where self-trust has ended in success.
Where self-trust has historically succeeded
The proverb goes “fall down seven times, stand up eight,” and here are three people who did just that:
Do you think Steve Jobs made his success with Apple overnight? No – he was forced out of his own company in 1985, before returning twelve years later with a whole lot of self-trust to save Apple from bankruptcy and turn it into the world’s largest I.T. company.
Actor Jim Carrey stopped his education at 16 to make ends meet for his family and was booed off stage at his first show. Now we all know him as a comedic slapstick legend from Dumb and Dumber, The Mask and much more.
Billie Jean King, founder of the Women’s Tennis Association and the Women’s Sport’s Foundation, fought hard to prove her worth as a female athlete. Her self-trust allowed her to be taken seriously, proving women are just as athletic as men.
How self-trust can help you succeed
Self-trust may not make you the head of a large corporation, a successful comedian or a world-class athlete (and you may not want it to), but I will guarantee it will move mountains in yourself, your life and your career.
It’s time to ask yourself:
- Are you ready to bring yourself forward?
- Are you dedicated to shaking off insecurity, doubt and inhibitions?
- Are you willing to take a chance on yourself?
A Perth coach will help you learn to trust yourself and give direction on your freshly paved pathway to self-trust and success.
