Review Your Week: Trust Yourself

Trust that you’ll figure it out as you go along so you don’t need to know about, and have a plan for, every single step that you’ll take on the path to your dreams.

That’s because as you take a step, you see your path from a different vantage point and new information may be revealed. That means you’ll have to make adjustments, meaning that all your plans for the steps way down the road—and maybe even the ones close up—may not apply any longer.

So don’t waste your time and energy carefully laying out plans for way down the path. Have a plan for the step right in front of you and perhaps two or three steps ahead of that. Then trust that you’ll figure it out as you need to.

Keep reminding yourself that you’ve made it this far in life—you had to figure things out to get where you are right now. You’re still capable and competent, just like you were when you figured it out before. So this means that you can figure it out again, I know you can!

Your homework today is to trust yourself to figure it out and then take the next step. Once you do, then plan the next step and only two or three steps ahead of that—making any tweaks or adjustments as needed.

You can do it!

As you review your week, remember to note the progress you’ve made this week, no matter how small or how humble. It all adds up! Then celebrate it and celebrate yourself!

Go you! You rock!

I’m so proud of you!

Your Friend and Pep Pal,

  1. This post is especially timely for me because I have just begun the process of shopping for a new car. I could easily become overwhelmed by the process. I so appreciate your reminder to take it just one step at a time and to trust that the whole process will unfold. Thank you!


    1. I’m glad I could help, Julie! Taking steps one at a time–breaking them into little bits and pieces–is the key to making steady progress toward your dreams. This is particularly helpful if you’re feeling anxious or overwhelmed by a step, at least I’ve found this to be true. When I break steps into little jots and tidbits, not only are they easier to fit into a busy day, but they fly under the radar of my nerves! Good luck with purchasing a new car; I’m sure you’ll find one that’s just perfect for you! ~Lauren
