Mindful Minute: Trust

Trust is something we earn due to our actions consistently matching up with our words over a long period of time.   Our loved ones learn that they can or cannot trust us by how we keep our promises.  Not just to them but also others.  Be mindful that our loved ones have placed their faith and hope in us being the man or woman they love and admire.

Sometimes we have to break promises because of work or unexpected events.  Some can’t be avoided, but how often is it because we’ve miss-placed our priorities?

When we break trust, or someone betrays our trust, it takes time and a lot of effort to restore that trust. However, if both parties are willing, trust can be restored.  Here is the formula that I use in restoring trust;

Time + Truth + Testing = Trust.

If you find yourself needing to restore trust, don’t give up.  Now more than ever, our words and actions must always be transparent.

“The glue that holds all relationships together; including the relationship between the leader and the led, is trust, and trust is based on integrity.”  Brian Tracy
