Learning to trust ourselves is probably one of the most important lessons necessary for living an authentic and intentional life. But learning to trust ourselves isn’t just about success. It’s about learning that we’ll be okay no matter what happens, no matter the failure, the loss or how hard we fall.⠀⠀⠀

The only way to learn to trust ourselves is to put ourselves in situations where there is the potential to fail. If we only do what’s safe or only try things that don’t risk anything, then we won’t have the opportunity to learn this. It’s a lesson that helps us transcend whatever happens outside of us, which we can’t really control, and will carry us through the natural and unpredictable ups and downs of life.⠀⠀⠀

Is there something you’ve been afraid to do? Rather than focusing on the act itself or the outcome, what if you instead saw it as an opportunity to learn this lesson, to learn to practice trusting yourself?⠀
