Albert Einstein has been attributed as saying; “You can’t solve a problem with the same thinking that created it.” Re-training how we thick can be done with a new game plan.
How to do we know we are making the right choices for us? We are internally wise. Often we look to outside sources when we should be looking to ourselves for the answers we seek. A big part of building inner trust is to learn how to trust our instincts. Trusting our instincts is huge when determining what is in our best interest. So how can we trust ourselves to find new solutions to old situations we want to have change?
Here are 5 ways to build trust in your own inner voice:
- Identify what it is that is giving you cause for concern at this time. What would you like to stop, change or enhance in your life? Ask yourself the question, then let it go and see what answers come to mind. This is a call to action to your instincts to help you identify what is concerning you.
- Write down the top three things you would like to experience in life. Knowing what is concerning you and what you want, allows you to create a map of where you are and where you want to go. With that in mind you can created a course of action or direction to take when exploring ways to resolve your concerns.
- Spend time alone. When you spend time alone it allows you to be open to hear what your inner voice is saying to you without the distraction of outside noise including other people.
- Listen your gut instead of your brain. This change has to be one of the most empowering shifts you can make. By listening to your gut, you can change your perspective. Our bodies know what is true for us if we allow ourselves to listen. It doesn’t mean you have to put what you know into action just yet; but learn to listen to your body to find the right answer. By practicing trusting your own instincts, you automatically increase your ability to learn to trust yourself more.
- Tune out everyone else. Too often we are concerned about what others will think of us or what we should do and it makes it hard to be honest with ourselves, so much so, that we hold back out fear of ridicule or reprisal. Make your decisions based on what you want. Of course this doesn’t mean you carelessly abandon responsibilities, it simply reminds you that what you want is important too.
Can you think of a time when you didn’t trust your instincts and it didn’t turn out for you? Remember how that made you feel? Use that memory as a catalyst to encourage you to trust yourself over others in the future.
As the saying goes, “We don’t know what we don’t know.” Be open to looking for different ways to find solutions to concerns you have.
