If you have had a difficult time trusting yourself, it may be a sign that you lack confidence. You cannot develop any trust without confidence. Feel secure in your abilities and be strong in your convictions. But that is also saying know when you are wrong as well.
Feeling secure in your abilities and being strong in your convictions require you to develop confidence. That may seem scary to you. However, it’s not as difficult as you think. No one is born with confidence. It is something people learn and develop during their lives. It’s the same for you. Take steps to develop your confidence. While you develop your confidence, trusting yourself will become easy.
What do you think is the biggest detractor from confidence? Fear is the biggest detractor from confidence. When you give into your fears, you will diminish the chances of building up your confidence. That is something that deepens if you don’t handle it quickly. You need to face your fears head-on. Do not continue to keep putting stuff off that you can handle in the present.
Facing your fears head on doesn't mean you should throw caution to the wind and be reckless in your decision making. You should take chances but only if they are not detrimental to yours or anyone else's lives.
Confidence is about knowing the difference.
Start out with small tasks that you have been afraid to try in the past. Most outcomes will turn out better than you imagine. If you try to project what will happen, and it is always a negative outcome, you will never make any decisions. Take on those small tasks without thinking too much about what’s going to happen. That will build up your confidence as you’ve never seen before.
You should ask questions when you aren’t sure about the situations you face. Confidence is not about having all the answers. It’s about knowing where to find them and who to rely on with the knowledge that you need. It’s also about putting things into action when you have gathered enough information to do.
