Trust: a firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone.
Trust is something you earn as the result of your actions consistently matching up with your words over a long period of time. Your loved ones learn that they can or cannot trust you by how you keep your promises. Not just to them but also to others. Be mindful that your loved ones have placed their faith and hope in you being the man they love and admire.
All to to many men break promises because of work or unexpected events. Some can’t be avoided, but all too often it’s because you’ve miss-placed your priorities.
When you betray the trust it takes time and effort to restore that trust.
Time + Truth + Testing = Trust.
If you find yourself needing to restore trust, don’t give up. Now more than ever your words and actions must always be transparent.
“When the trust account is high, communication is easy, instant, and effective.” –Stephen R. Covey
