Thought for the Week

NO matter how logical we think we are, or we appear to be, deep down we are all living, breathing bundles of energy.

You will never, never be able to be build a trusted relationship with any other human being, until you can build such a trusted relationship with yourself.

This is because, unless you trust yourself, and all that you think, say and do, you will always be seeking the approval of others – asking their permission before you feel confident in taking action.

This is the single biggest disabler to taking action – waiting for someone else, or indeed ourselves, to give us that permission.

With the exception of those who are married with children, whose thoughts, hope and vision should be shared with their family for whom life is going to change, Naked Millionaires don’t need anyone’s permission except their own.

    Trusting yourself becomes a problem if you have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder as your conscious mind keeps doubting the unconscious mind and keeps telling it what to do when actually, it already knows. In that respect it's about letting you trust your unconscious mind to know what it's doing and that way you get to trust yourself. Entrepreneurs i would say, just do, they don't think about it otherwise they wouldn't achieve because a lot of what they do achieve is on instinct.

    Trust yourself and trust others. That's always been a sort of motto of mine. You have to show a trustinmg nature in most things that you do in life otherwise you would never get anything done.

    It's not always easy to trust yourself when you know you have made poor decisions in the past.In that respect it can be a difficult thing to get your head around. I like to trust my own instincts but have made blunders in the past. How can I convince myself I won't do that again?There are some things in life I like doing and making decisions isn't one of them. Wrong choices can hurt self-esteem.

    If you can't trust yourself then who can you trust? It is about believing in yourself enough to know you will always make the right decision. Then you can say you are in control.

    I trust myself and therefore have trusted relationships. I agree you must have some sort of relationship with yourself to make the rest of your life happen smoothly. If you don't you have little chance of being able to get by in business or personally.
