Criticize or Encourage

How often do you criticize versus encourage yourself each day? Self-trust is a learned skill to rely upon one’s inner resources to navigate the world using the ability to cope with whatever life throws at you. Practice self-kindness, not perfection when cultivating self-trust.

Here are a few tips to begin the process.

  • Speak kindly to yourself. Be understanding when you make a mistake. Trust that you can overcome a slipup or failure.
  • Keep promises to yourself. Break goals into small bite-size goals you can achieve.
  • Work from your strengths. Don't focus on your weaknesses.
  • Be authentic. When you try to be someone you are not, you are telling yourself you are not good enough. It is a strength to show your vulnerabilities, not a weakness.
