Working with PowerTies Consulting builds values-centered leaders who achieve "Peaceful Trust" in life and business!
Building Peaceful Trust in Ourselves and Others
Imagine a life where you move through each day with unshakeable confidence, not arrogance, but a quiet inner knowing that you are capable and worthy. This, my friends, is the essence of Peaceful Trust. It's not blind optimism, but a deep-rooted belief in our own abilities, it is a gentle acceptance of our imperfections. It's the understanding that challenges are inevitable, but we have the strength and resilience to navigate them.
And guess what? This beautiful state of being isn't just for a lucky few. Peaceful Trust is a skill that can be cultivated, nurtured, and shared with others. But before we embark on this journey of self-discovery and empowerment, let's delve into the heart of what Peaceful Trust truly is.
Peaceful Trust: The Compass to Your Inner Strength
Think of Peaceful Trust as our personal GPS, guiding us through life's ups and downs. It's the unwavering belief that we are deserving of happiness and fulfillment, regardless of external circumstances. It's the voice within that whispers, "You’ve got this," even when the world seems to shout otherwise.
Here's the key: Peaceful Trust isn't about pretending everything is perfect. It's about acknowledging our vulnerabilities, fears, and setbacks, but choosing to trust that we have the inner strength to overcome them. It's about embracing our authentic self, flaws and all, and knowing that we are worthy of love and respect -- all of us, each of us.
Why is Peaceful Trust So Important?
In a world that often throws curveballs, Peaceful Trust acts as an anchor, keeping you grounded and centered. It empowers you to make decisions with clarity, navigate challenges with grace, and bounce back from setbacks with resilience. Research shows that individuals with high levels of Peaceful Trust experience:
Reduced stress and anxiety: A study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology found that people with high self-trust reported lower levels of stress hormones like cortisol.
Stronger relationships: When you trust yourself, you're more likely to trust others, fostering deeper and more meaningful connections.
Greater resilience: A 2018 study in the journal PLOS One found that self-compassion, a key component of Peaceful Trust, is associated with increased resilience in the face of adversity.
Enhanced well-being: Research published in the journal Psychological Science suggests that self-trust is linked to higher levels of happiness and life satisfaction.
Building Your Inner Oasis: Cultivating Peaceful Trust in Yourself
The journey to Peaceful Trust begins within. Here are some practices to cultivate this inner sanctuary:
Self-compassion: Treat ourselves with the same kindness and understanding we would extend to a loved one. Acknowledge our mistakes, but don't dwell on them. Celebrate our successes, big and small.
Mindfulness: Pay attention to our thoughts and feelings without judgment. Meditation and deep breathing exercises can be powerful tools for self-awareness.
Positive affirmations: Counter negative self-talk with positive affirmations that reflect our true worth. Repeat phrases like "I am capable," "I am worthy," and "I am deserving of happiness."
Positive Actions / Habits: Slowly replacing negative habits with positive ones is the most important and most effective tool that we can use in changing our behaviors for the better.
Challenge negative beliefs: Identify limiting beliefs that hold us back and challenge them with evidence to the contrary. Remember, our thoughts are not facts – they are emotionally charged and altered observations that we are recalling to reinforce our actions and decisions. Many of these are based only upon fear. So, we can reprogram our minds to recall positive beliefs in the same way.
Celebrate your strengths: Take time to appreciate our unique talents, skills, and qualities. What makes each of us special? Learn to determine these for ourselves and use these talents when we need them.
Sharing the Light: Building Peaceful Trust in Others
As you cultivate Peaceful Trust within ourselves, we naturally become a beacon of hope and inspiration for others. Here's how we can share this gift:
Be a role model: Embody the qualities of Peaceful Trust in our interactions with others. Show compassion, understanding, and unwavering belief in their potential.
Offer encouragement: Uplift others with genuine compliments and words of affirmation. Celebrate their successes and offer support during challenges.
Empower others: Create opportunities for others to develop their skills and confidence. Delegate tasks, provide constructive feedback, and celebrate their growth.
Practice active listening: Lend a listening ear without judgment, creating a safe space for others to share their vulnerabilities and dreams.
Remember, Peaceful Trust is a journey, not a destination. There will be ups and downs, moments of doubt and self-criticism. But with consistent effort and self-compassion, you can cultivate this inner strength and illuminate the path for yourself and others. As the great poet Maya Angelou said, "You alone are capable of changing the quality of your life." So, take a deep breath, trust in your own potential, and start building your peaceful oasis today.

I didn't believe in myself when I left for the Army in 1995. I thought I'd fail out of boot camp! But I didn't.
I always wanted to help people but I didn't know what I wanted to help them do. In the Army, I learned leadership and emotional intelligence. Then I studied business and went on to build a successful Life and Business Consulting practice but it wasn't without hardships.
I had to learn to believe in myself. Now I shortcut the process for others.
It's belief that inspires innovation and success. And your life is not simple. It's hard. So belief can be hard to come by sometimes.
Learning to bring your A-game every day is a tough sell. Let's focus on getting to the next level. You'll realize that coaching from people without experience really doesn't help. I believe you're like an athlete, and every athlete needs a good coach who knows the game to tweak their performance sometimes.
Come to PowerTies Consulting Group if you are ready to start on a magnificent journey. We will challenge you, and you'll be better for it. Take the leap and begin a new path. Your path doesn't have to lead to boredom and/or frustration. You've had enough of that. You now want a path that leads to you getting what you really want and need! Let's find that path that makes you a better leader (even if you're only leading yourself). Let's figure out how to build that team. Give yourself a chance to forgive yourself for past failures and move forward! We can do this together.
We'll chat for 30 minutes about your challenges, and we'll do a shallow dive. If we agree that you want to do more with us, we'll spend a 2-hour session with you in a deep-dive and we'll determine your very best way forward. There are no templates, or special courses, or little tricks. This is just straight-talk and proven methods of changing your life and business for the better and it ends with belief! You will learn and practice the skills for being the best you can be.

"Hi Keith! I wanted to write with some good news. About 2 yrs ago after I got my MBA, when you helped me spruce up my resume and Linkedin profile, it helped me get a job as a defense contractor, performing an audit for one of their clients. Just recently, I got promoted to employment with the same company! So, I'm no longer contracting. Now, I'm working on the internal audit aspect of this engagement. I'm beyond excited about having a career! I wanted to thank you for your life and career advice, and social media and resume help. It's really started me on the career I want! Thank you!"
- Jen at Defense Contractor Employment, Texas
