It is the foundation of any good relationship, be it personal or business.
Without trust, the walls crumble and the roof crashes in.
The foundation of trust does not just appear however. It must be cultivated and cared for over time. It begins by combining common ingredients and blending them into something stronger and solid.
Trust is gained from experiences. We do not automatically trust someone just because we exist in each other’s lives. It is a process of slowly stacking building blocks until there is something solid to lean on.
So how do we develop trust? It is a simple as communication. Sharing ourselves in a non-threatening, non-judgmental environment. Understanding that we can have different paths to the same goal.
Trust is built on relationships. It is deeper than a nod in passing, a handshake and a wave. It is going deeper into another’s life and caring to know what is there. You may not always agree, that is ok. The people you agree with more may be held closer in your circle, but there is room for many different experiences.
I hope to earn your trust!
