2. You must live and speak your truth
When you allow yourself to listen to others as they tell you who you are and what you should be doing you give your power away to them in that moment. You allow their voice to become more powerful than yours. Staying connected with what you believe, how you feel, your values, morals and integrity, your point of view, and how you want to live your life is going to help you gain confidence and give you the courage that you need to live for you and not anyone else. This will also help you match the person who you show to others with the person who you are inside leaving no room for discrepancies, which will also help your strengthen your sense of trust and discernment so you are able to appropriately take advice.
