In this episode of The Charged Life, #1 New York Times bestselling author and high performance coach Brendon Burchard riffs on the question: “How can I believe in people again if I've been so hurt and disappointed by other people?”

This is Brendon speaking freestyle, recorded in one take without prompter or notes.

We all struggle to make it through life. Remember that. Have empathy for others. A must-watch for those who have lost faith in others, doubted humanity, pushed the doors to their minds and hearts closed.

Here's what you can do:

1. Don't Play the Victim Game. We often feel that people can't understand us, so we start separating ourselves from them. But there's seven billion people on the planet, and thousands of years of human history. You are not alone, nor are you going through something that no one can understand. It's easier to believe in people again when you realize that people CAN understand you.

2. Share Who You Are. The way to trust people again is to share your thoughts, your feelings, your beliefs, your ambitions, your dreams with people again. Trust that people will support you… but only if you give them reason to by sharing yourself authentically.

3. Network with your positive network. If everyone seems like a jerk, but you have at least one positive person who you work with at your job, go out to lunch with them. Start talking with them and get to know their friends. Go out to lunch with their friends. Go out to dinner with their friends. Positive people tend to attract other positive people and as soon as you reconnect with your friends who are positive, who do believe in people, who do believe in you, who do cheer you on, you start to access their network of other people like that.

Follow the advice in this video and the points above and soon you'll find more supportive people who believe in you, who want to engage with you, who you have enthusiasm to meet and see again and then you have what we call The Charged Life.
