Trusting Yourself

"Trust what works. When you trust what works, you trust yourself." This was my Twitter post last night, inspired by Buddhist teacher Thich Nhat Hahn in a recent talk. Showing up with integrity, in any context, begins with trusting oneself. The whole emphasis invokes interesting questions:

What does it mean to trust yourself?

How much do you trust yourself today? 

How much does your integrity, authenticity and showing up have to do with trusting yourself?

What would you be like with stronger self-trust?

Thich Nhat Hahn suggests an intrinsic relationship between trusting ourself and trusting what works. This implies that trust what works in our life is core to trusting ourself. It's an interesting, compelling and radically realistic perspective.
