How much do you trust yourself to follow through on what you say you're going to do?
Do you trust yourself to make good choices?
Do you trust yourself to make good choices not only for the present moment, but for your future self? The one who has already achieved your goals?
The theme of trust or the lack of trust pops up a lot when I coach lawyers. The typical non-lawyer might think that we have it all together, that we of course trust ourselves to accomplish what we have in life so far.
I see a different side of things. When I talk to lawyers, I see lawyers who have taught themselves not to trust themselves by how they behave in the world. No matter how much they can accomplish, they don't quite feel like they can trust themselves to do what they say that they're going to do.
The good news is that if you don't trust yourself, you can change that.
Trusting yourself is a learnable skill, and today I'm going to walk you through the process of how to begin. These are some of the same techniques that I teach my coaching clients step-by-step and I guide them through it in whatever endeavor that they're trying to reach for.
