Trust in Yourself

Do you trust that you have what It takes to have true wealth?

Ask successful and wealthy people how they achieved such remarkable success, and they will tell you it involved trusting themselves and trusting their inner knowing.

Too often we are limited in what we can achieve in life because we haven’t been willing to trust ourselves, trust in our knowing, and trust our awareness. We haven’t been willing to function from possibilities.

Attaining sustainable wealth requires us to have trust in ourselves and to trust that we are capable of achieving more than we would ever believe or consider.

Clearly, then, to truly become wealthy and prosperous requires that we trust ourselves and honor who and what we are. Trusting and honoring ourselves is about the willingness to recognize what is true for us and be that—to be self-directed rather than directed by others in both our work and our life.

It also requires an unshakable trust in our ability to be aware of all possibilities, not just the ones we think we already know.

When it comes to money and wealth creation, TRUST is the capacity that tops the list

By choosing to trust yourself and your knowing, you can create and generate a sustainable wealth unfettered by the limitations of this reality. By choosing to believe in your own abilities and challenge assumptions regardless of what conventional wisdom holds, you are on the way to being truly wealthy.

Warren Buffett, one of the wealthiest people on the planet, is a highly respected business leader who illustrates what it is like to achieve amazingly spectacular success by truly trusting in himself.

The key to Warren’s success is that he trusts in his abilities and values the magic that he is as the source of his life. He has achieved his wealth by being aware of nascent companies that were likely to blossom and prosper in the future.

He follows his awareness—and not the crowd. He has an amazing ability to stand alone when the winds of popular opinion are against him. He buys stocks when everyone else is anxious and fearful, and he sells when everyone else is voracious and acquisitive.

Warren Buffett has spent his life going against the herd. According to Warren, “You’re neither right nor wrong because other people agree with you. You’re right because your facts are right and your reasoning is right—and that’s the only thing that makes you right. And if your facts and reasoning are right, you don’t have to worry about anybody else.”

He has a history of standing alone that dates back to the early days of his investing career. Most of the stocks he owns were purchased when no one wanted them. If he had followed the crowd or followed the direction from Wall Street, he would have missed out on some of his greatest investments.

The more you follow your knowing, the more naturally it will become the way of being

When you are willing to trust that you have what it takes to create wealth, you know that whatever you choose to create, you will find a way to achieve it. You will choose what is going to work for you, and you are going to do whatever it takes to accomplish this. You will create something that is beyond what anybody else can see.

When you trust that you have what it takes, you start to have more ease with money. And the more ease you are with money, the more money comes into your life.

Every time you go against your knowing, you kill every possibility that you could generate for your life. You cannot go against what you know without eliminating new possibilities.

In fact, if you make it a practice to follow your knowing as you go about your daily life, even with the small stuff, you will move towards that which expands your life and possibilities.

What if trusting yourself was a creative factor for a greater possibility?

When you trust yourself, you have the ability to follow your knowing. When you follow your knowing, you will be aware whether your choice will be expansive and create more possibilities or whether it will be contractive and create limitations for you and everyone else. This greatly enhances the possibility of your success.

If you trust yourself, when there is something wonky with the choice, you will feel it and you will ask for more information of what is going on so you can change something.

The willingness to trust yourself and trust your knowing is the place where you begin to have true choice. This is about opening to the choice of new possibility.

This is a choice you have to make. You have to make a demand of yourself: “No matter what it takes, no matter what it looks like, I am going down this path.”

You have to choose to be totally vulnerable and totally potent and demand, “No matter what occurs I am going to be that.” It’s a choice and a demand you have to make of yourself.

You can also ask: “What is it going to take to have that?
