I recently did a full episode (Ep 391) on why moms lack self-trust. The quick & dirty is this: women are conditioned from a very early age to trust others thoughts/opinions/judgements/instincts over our own. So, by the time we get to motherhood, we are already struggling (greatly) to listen to our gut. And babies make this even harder - because we must prioritize their needs over our own. We stop noticing that we’re hungry or tired or in need of, well, anything. We learn to shut off our own needs entirely.
If you didn’t listen to episode 391, go back and do that. THEN, listen in here to hear how you can relearn self-trust. In this episode, I teach you two powerful feedback loops that will help you learn how to trust your gut and your power in new and profound ways. The second feedback loop is the most critical, so make sure to listen to the end - especially if you’re someone who struggles to find success in the face of failure and struggles.
I am dedicating myself to rebuilding self-trust in 2020. It is one of my top priorities this year. Any of you are welcome to join me on this journey of learning to trust again. I am ALL IN on listening inward this year. Let’s do it together!
