In the corporate world, when we talk about leadership and teamwork and coporate culture, one of the main topics that all other topics come back to is TRUST. We talk about how leaders must have the trust of those they are leading to be effective. We know that teams must have trust between the teammates in order for the group to function effectively. In marketing, we talk about how customers need to trust the brand. Trust is a big deal in the world of business.
While you’re building your business, and especially when you are planning to become self-employed, trust is also a critical factor in your success. In the video below, I talk about why trusting yourself is so critical, and how to know if you need to work on trusting yourself more so you can make the brave leaps forward you need to make to really get your business flying.
Kenneth Bregman (writer for Harvard Business Review and leadership strategist) says:
This trusting of yourself is not just about writing a speech. It’s about speaking in meetings. It’s about choosing projects to pursue. It’s about advocating for budgets. It’s about having the courage to do work that moves you. Can you trust yourself enough to follow your own impulses?
If you need to work on trusting yourself, the best way to do that is to work with a good coach who can help you identify the things that might be keeping you from trusting more, and support you in building your self-trust.
Or you can just get out there and start making mistakes and learn along the way. But whatever you do, don’t go into this game without lots of self trust! It will end up sabotaging your business and ultimately damage the relationship you have with yourself.
It’s time to start being brave and believing in yourself!
Below in the comments, I’d love to hear how trusting and believing your self would change your life.
What would you do if you knew for absolute certain that you’ll be okay and that you can trust your impulses and intuition? How would you change the world??
