Trust is earned. Like friendship, trust matures in time and it cannot be forced into someone to give it to you.
Trust is a valuable, unseen force that when you earned it from someone, you can be assured it will be reciprocated.
Developing and maintaining trust is the main goal of this article to help anyone who wants to cultivate trust in their lives.
Trust in Yourself.
Do you trust in yourself? You cannot give what you don’t have. If you have no capacity to trust your own self, how do you think others see they can rely on you?
Before offering others to trust you for important matters, you must have the confidence that people can trust you. Build trust in yourself so others can see it in you.
You can determine and feel using your intuition, knowledge and understanding if a person is trustworthy.
To trust in yourself, you must practice being true to the words you say and the things you do for yourself and others. Be transparent. Do what you say you will do.
Step back and think before you make a decision or judgment so you can see the whole picture. In this way, you have a sense of truth in situations and you can assure yourself that your view of things are reliable.
Trust in a Relationship.
In every relationship, it is tested in times that trust is being questioned and challenged.
How do you make sure truth surfaces over a situation? Be honest and sincere towards the person. Make an effort that your intention come across as truthfully as possible. You will build trust with truth and honesty.
What happens when a trust is damaged? How do you rebuild trust in a broken relationship? The best approach is to start over to win the person back by doing good deeds and look after the needs of this person to the best you can do, one step at a time.
If you caused hurt in your relationship involving trust, this requires healing. It will take time. Be patient. This is the consequence of breaking the trust of a person.
The relationship that is fragmented has to be restored piece by piece until it is rebuilt again. Rebuilding trust in relationships requires patience and understanding of the time the other person’s need.
Sincerity and honesty prevails in trust. If you can practice performing sincere work and honesty in your words, trust is gained.
Can you trust a person who lies and take you for granted often? Human beings have a deep longing to be cared for and loved. There is no way you can win the heart of a person with untruthfulness and deceit.
Love binds everyone. When you love a person and this person feels it, trust is freely given.
Detachment from Control.
You cannot control a situation, but you can make an intention of how you want the outcome to be. Set an intention and let go, see what happens.
There is no way we can read what’s going on in other people’s mind.
Nobody wants to be controlled. Human beings have been blessed with free will and mind to do things as they like and how they want it to be done.
Trust is not controlled. Trust flows and tests your personality at every given situation.
How do you think a person feels when being controlled? The freedom is suppressed and this person will retreat.
We live in a free world where every person has the right to choose. The freedom to make our own choices makes us enjoy living life.
Trust comes at the right time when it is free and offered sincerely. People tend to like people who has an open mind who let them express themselves.
If you are the person who lost trust in a relationship, how do you trust again? Evaluate your values and take the time you need to get back on your feet. When you are ready, your mind has a space to decide the best course of action.
Importance of Trust in Business.
Whether you are an employee or a business owner, trust has to be established to build a lasting working relationship.
Don’t work for someone else if your intuition is telling you that something isn’t right. Can you work for someone who are not aligned to your career goal?
For a business owner, find out if someone working for you has the best interest for your business. You need a happy and trustworthy employee to help your business to thrive and succeed. Work will suffer if you end up employing a person who is halfheartedly doing the work.
Work relationships are strengthened through reciprocated trust. A repeat customer or clients comes back with the trust that the services being rendered are up to standard.
Empires are built by a team who worked together to achieve a common goal. If a team is solid, business prospers and staff is well compensated for.
Your Core Values.
The virtue of trust is commonly important in Christian values. Trust grows in people who are striving to practice this noble virtue.
Christians value faith and trust in the Lord. There is no faith without trust.
When you are valued by a person, isn’t it you have faith and put your trust in this person?
You must live your core values to cultivate trust in your life. Trust grows, when love and hope grows. These values are linked to one another.
Would you trust a stranger? More often people take caution from people they do not know. How can you entrust your material belongings to a person who doesn’t value them?
Value and trust go together. The more you love this person, the more you build trust with another because both of you knows you can rely on each other in the different cycle and stages of life.
Have faith in yourself. You can build trust with people in your life when they know you are living according to your values. People will trust you.
“The only way to make a man trustworthy is to trust him.” ~ Henry L. Stimson
