Choosing to Trust Life and My Tesla
We have the beta FSD, full self-driving, and we noticed that many Tesla drivers seem to not be using the FSD. The truth is that trusting the FSD is not necessarily an easy choice, but it is a choice. As I watch myself learn how to trust my Tesla FSD, I have been thinking of the parallels of trusting life.
In my coaching practice, I help clients question which emotions they want to feel and help them figure out how to generate their desired emotions.
Trust is a commonly desired emotion, up there with love and connection.
Tesla FSD is not perfect, it for sure needs supervision and take over from time to time. I can notice the easy tendency to distrust the software and AI.
But on the other hand, supervising my Tesla on FSD is much more relaxing knowing that Tesla has multiple cameras and sensors around the car.
There is this ding-ding sound when I double tap into FSD that has become a relaxing sound. It is like this, “oh, now I get to relax and supervise.” But I did not always have this automatic response, I built it.
My expectations are set reasonably as I have paid attention to places that are often confusing to the Tesla; like when the freeway has been re-done and the lines have been scraped and poorly repainted, or in freeway merges, or in construction zones. And so in these instances, I often flip it out of FSD and take over to avoid the Tesla jerking us around.
My little one says from the back seat, “The Tesla is still learning.” I couldn’t agree more and at the same time, I am learning to trust my Tesla.
The thing with trust is that we often expect to never be let down by anything or anyone. But that is not what I have found to be useful when it comes to life. And the even bigger step is to trust even after we have had our trust broken.
Like after a lie, cheating, or a broken promise. BUT even then we do have the choice to trust. Because trust is a feeling that comes directly from a thought in our mind.
Lately, I have been getting a flood of client referrals. One thing I have noticed is how these referrals come to me with an already established amount of trust.
Someone said something to them that got an idea in their head that created the trust.
Trust, no matter what the situation, is always a choice, even when trust has been broken. This brings me to trusting life.
When I was a kid, I felt pretty cursed with my poor health and mistrust was more or less my baseline.
But as I have made my own journey through my life, I have realized that life is much better when I choose to trust both life and myself. Sure let downs and broken promises and diagnoses and bad breaks still happen, but maintaining trust is a more useful and peaceful way to navigate the 50/50 of life.
