Do you trust your decisions? Or, do you find you second guess yourself?
Until I learned how to trust my intuition, I used to second guess my decisions.
Now, I stop myself before asking someone else’s opinion.
It’s not to say the other person’s opinion doesn’t matter, because maybe they are a subject matter expert on what you’re deciding on, but regardless, I invite you to check in with yourself first, and go from there.
So why do we feel the need to turn to others?
Why do we think they know more about what we want for our life than we do?
In a nutshell, not being able to trust ourselves often comes from chronic self-doubt and imposter syndrome to indecisiveness and low self-esteem.
Here are a few things that can get in the way of trusting our intuition:
- Prejudices & unconscious bias
- A loved one or a person in an authority role – their wants, needs, opinion
- Previous trauma/abuse in childhood
The good news is that yes, we can learn how to listen to our inner wisdom – our intuition.
Our intuition is a muscle that gets stronger with every decision we make.
“The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are so certain of themselves and wiser people so full of doubts.”
Here’s a 4-step plan that can help cultivate trusting your intuition:
- Slow down and clear your mind.
- Notice how your body is feeling.
- Ask yourself: “What’s important to me right now?”
- Take action without second guessing your decision.
