Paralyzed by Distrust?

Distrust PicA look into Distrust can remove much confusion and frustration.

Distrust creates a hard boundary in the mind, making issues labeled such very hard to work with. Do you work for a company or boss you do not trust?

Distrust is a protection mechanism and is often mis-attributed. You may say you distrust the company, when actually you mean, you trust the company will take care of itself and that may not be good for you.

Doubt can also get labeled as dis-trust. A major component of doubt is not-knowing and as a human-being we want to know, so we see not-knowing as negative.

Doubt however is also full of potential, which allows room for creativity. Rarely is business a certain proposition. Though they may never admit it, doubt is no stranger to your boss or the company as a whole. It has been my experience that business responds favorably to those who take action into uncertainty.

Setting aside your aversion to not-knowing may help you find an outcome you are happier with. A good way to do this is to determine what you know: What information do you have? What information do you need? Who has that information? What is my relevant experience? Do I need to learn something? Do I have the faculties to learn it? Who ultimately sets the vision? Can I speak with them? Etc… From this you can make a plan that suits you.

If you are part of the solution, you are by definition not the problem. In what creative ways may you be able to participate in creating the outcome you desire?

May your life go well
