1. Meditate your way to self-trust.
Take the time to be alone and look within in peace. What do you feel, what do you think? Sometimes the answers are already within you, but you have not been able to hear them because of the pressure and distractions of the outside world, and also because of your own mental turmoil.

2. Take time to rest.
The more tired you are, the more unclear and confusing things can seem. By resting well and smart, you calm yourself down. And the calmer you are, the better you can handle everything.
3. Don’t take this world too seriously.
Understand that life is not made to have all the answers. Life isn’t made to be perfect either.
4. Dare to follow your own path
Even if it means you may fail. It is better to be able to say that you have listened to yourself and tried something, than to keep asking yourself: what if…
5. We all make mistakes on our own journey.
That’s NORMAL and even GOOD! Those who have never made a mistake have never given themselves the opportunity to learn something new.
6. Ask yourself regularly what consequence you can continue to live with.
The consequence of numbing your own wishes and needs or the consequence of not always meeting society’s expectations. What consequence are you at peace with? Because of course there will always be disadvantages, but if you are at peace with your chosen disadvantage then there is also no loss.
7. Realize that at the end of the day everyone is doing their own business.
So no matter how well-meaning the opinions of others are, ultimately this is not their life, but yours. We all have our own lives and the right to shape it ourselves.
8. Take small steps, and keep doing this.
This way you build a bond of self-trust and you go your way at a comfortable pace. Yes, it’s important to jump into the deep end once in a while, but who says it shouldn’t go in a comfortable way? The finer and lighter the steps, the better you can handle them.
At the end of the day you move forward and that’s what it’s all about. Not how fast you’re going, but that you’re moving forward at all.
9. Reward yourself
By complimenting yourself and celebrating your successes.
10. Ask yourself what is more important
The next time you find yourself in a situation where you prefer advice, ask yourself what is more important. Is it really important to get an answer from someone else because you are in need of time, or genuinely don’t know what to do. Or do you have time to think for yourself?
